Breathtakingly large, Mexico City provides a home for almost 9 million people living in nearly 1,700 distinct neighborhoods.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Coyoacan and Tinta Naranja Urban Gallery. Get some cultural insight at La Condesa and National Museum of Anthropology (Museo Nacional de Antropologia). Go for a jaunt from Mexico City to San Juan Teotihuacan to see Zona Arqueologica Teotihuacan about 1h 20 min away. There's lots more to do: get in on the family fun at Six Flags Mexico, explore the galleries of National Palace (Palacio Nacional), steep yourself in history at Chapultepec Castle, and get engrossed in the history at Templo Mayor Museum.

If you are flying in from Costa Rica, the closest major airports are Licenciado Benito Juarez International Airport, Querétaro Intercontinental Airport and General Francisco J. Mujica International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 28°C in August, and nighttime lows around 16°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 22nd (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
