Breathtakingly large, Mexico City provides a home for almost 9 million people living in nearly 1,700 distinct neighborhoods.
On your second day here, explore the galleries of Museo del Templo Mayor, explore the world behind art at Palacio de Bellas Artes, then learn more about the world around you at Museo Nacional de Antropologia, and finally examine the collection at Museo Frida Kahlo.

Make your Mexico City itinerary with Inspirock to find out what to see and where to go.

Dayton, USA to Mexico City is an approximately 8- hour combination of taxi and flight. You can also do a combination of taxi, flight, and bus; or drive. The time zone changes from Eastern Standard Time (EST) to Central Standard Time (CST), which is usually a -1 hour difference. Plan for a bit warmer temperatures traveling from Dayton in November, with highs in Mexico City at 72°F and lows at 49°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 10th (Sun) to allow time to travel to Playa del Carmen.

The tourist hub of the popular Mayan Riviera, upscale Playa del Carmen remains the jewel of Mexico's Caribbean coastline.
On the 11th (Mon), don't miss a visit to Quinta Avenida, then explore the ancient world of Tulum Archaeological Site, then explore the activities along Gran Cenote, and finally stop by Kaahal Home Tulum. On the 12th (Tue), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: find something for the whole family at Xcaret.

Plan my Playa del Carmen trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

You can do a combination of flight and bus from Mexico City to Playa del Carmen in 5.5 hours. Alternatively, you can do a combination of bus and flight; or drive. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Mexico City to Playa del Carmen. Plan for a bit warmer temperatures traveling from Mexico City in November, with highs in Playa del Carmen at 81°F and lows at 69°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 12th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
