Breathtakingly large, Mexico City provides a home for almost 9 million people living in nearly 1,700 distinct neighborhoods.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Museo del Templo Mayor and Palacio de Bellas Artes. Get some historical perspective at Metropolitan Cathedral (Catedral Metropolitana) and National Palace (Palacio Nacional). When in Mexico City, make a side trip to see Zona Arqueologica Teotihuacan in San Juan Teotihuacan, approximately 1h 20 min away. There's still lots to do: examine the collection at National Museum of Anthropology (Museo Nacional de Antropologia), take a peaceful walk through Chapultepec Park, contemplate the long history of Chapultepec Castle, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Zocalo.

To find other places to visit, maps, more things to do, and other tourist information, you can read our Mexico City trip planning website .

Expect a daytime high around 28°C in March, and nighttime lows around 11°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 3rd (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
