Breathtakingly large, Mexico City provides a home for almost 9 million people living in nearly 1,700 distinct neighborhoods.
Change things up with a short trip to Zona Arqueologica Teotihuacan in San Juan Teotihuacan (about 1h 15 min away). There's much more to do: examine the collection at National Museum of Anthropology (Museo Nacional de Antropologia), get to know the fascinating history of Historic Center (Centro Historico), steep yourself in history at Chapultepec Castle, and get a sense of history and politics at National Palace (Palacio Nacional).

For photos, more things to do, maps, and tourist information, you can read our Mexico City itinerary builder.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airports are Licenciado Benito Juarez International Airport, Licenciado Adolfo Lopez Mateos International Airport and Querétaro Intercontinental Airport. In August in Mexico City, expect temperatures between 75°F during the day and 57°F at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 14th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
