Breathtakingly large, Mexico City provides a home for almost 9 million people living in nearly 1,700 distinct neighborhoods.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Piedra Herrada Sanctuary and Archaeological Zone of Xochicalco. Step out of Mexico City with an excursion to Cosmovitral Jardin Botanico in Toluca--about 1h 25 min away. There's lots more to do: see the interesting displays at National Museum of Anthropology (Museo Nacional de Antropologia), take a stroll through Alameda Central, let your taste buds guide you at a local gastronomic tour, and get to know the fascinating history of Zocalo.

To find more things to do, ratings, reviews, and other tourist information, you can read our Mexico City vacation trip planner.

In January, daytime highs in Mexico City are 70°F, while nighttime lows are 45°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 15th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
