Breathtakingly large, Mexico City provides a home for almost 9 million people living in nearly 1,700 distinct neighborhoods.
Explore hidden gems such as Archaeological Zone of Xochicalco and Museo Memoria y Tolerancia. Get a sense of the local culture at Polanco and Chapultepec Park. Change things up with these side-trips from Mexico City: Piedra Herrada Sanctuary (in Valle de Bravo) and Tula (in Tula de Allende). And it doesn't end there: see the interesting displays at Museo Dolores Olmedo, let little ones run wild at Parque Espana, steep yourself in history at Tlatelolco, and look for gifts at Tinta Naranja Urban Gallery.

To find where to stay, ratings, reviews, and other tourist information, you can read our Mexico City travel planner .

If you are flying in from Australia, 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 26°C, while nighttime lows are 9°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 20th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
