Breathtakingly large, Mexico City provides a home for almost 9 million people living in nearly 1,700 distinct neighborhoods.
Visit Metropolitan Cathedral (Catedral Metropolitana) and Zocalo for their historical value. Get outdoors at Bosque de Chapultepec and Chapultepec Park. Change things up with a short trip to Zona Arqueologica Teotihuacan in San Juan Teotihuacan (about 1h 15 min away). The adventure continues: examine the collection at National Museum of Anthropology (Museo Nacional de Antropologia), get a sense of history and politics at National Palace (Palacio Nacional), appreciate the extensive heritage of Historic Center (Centro Historico), and identify plant and animal life at La Condesa.

For where to stay, traveler tips, reviews, and other tourist information, go to the Mexico City travel itinerary planner.

If you are flying in from Costa Rica, the closest major airports are Licenciado Benito Juarez International Airport, Licenciado Adolfo Lopez Mateos International Airport and Querétaro Intercontinental Airport. In September in Mexico City, expect temperatures between 27°C during the day and 16°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 19th (Tue) so you can travel back home.
