Breathtakingly large, Mexico City provides a home for almost 9 million people living in nearly 1,700 distinct neighborhoods.
Go for a jaunt from Mexico City to San Juan Teotihuacan to see Zona Arqueologica Teotihuacan about 1h 20 min away. There's still lots to do: explore the striking landscape of Chapultepec Park, explore the world behind art at Palacio de Bellas Artes, explore the ancient world of Metropolitan Cathedral (Catedral Metropolitana), and examine the collection at Frida Kahlo Museum.

To find more things to do, other places to visit, ratings, and tourist information, read our Mexico City trip planner .

If you are flying in from Peru, 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 24°C in January, and nighttime lows around 7°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 28th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
