Breathtakingly large, Mexico City provides a home for almost 9 million people living in nearly 1,700 distinct neighborhoods.
Mexico City is known for museums, historic sites, nightlife, shopping, and nature. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: examine the collection at National Museum of Anthropology, explore the ancient world of Metropolitan Cathedral (Catedral Metropolitana), explore the historical opulence of Chapultepec Castle, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Basilica de Santa Maria de Guadalupe.

For maps, where to stay, photos, and more tourist information, use the Mexico City trip planner.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airports are Licenciado Benito Juarez International Airport, Querétaro Intercontinental Airport and General Francisco J. Mujica International Airport. In December, daytime highs in Mexico City are 72°F, while nighttime lows are 47°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 29th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
