Mexico City ©
Breathtakingly large, Mexico City provides a home for almost 9 million people living in nearly 1,700 distinct neighborhoods.
Get a sense of the local culture at Historic Center (Centro Historico) and Palacio de Bellas Artes. And it doesn't end there: see the interesting displays at National Museum of Anthropology (Museo Nacional de Antropologia), tour the pleasant surroundings at Alameda Central, contemplate the long history of Chapultepec Castle, and wander the streets of Coyoacan.

Plan my day in Mexico City using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

Playa del Carmen to Mexico City is an approximately 5.5-hour combination of bus and flight. You can also do a combination of bus and flight; or drive. You'll gain 1 hour traveling from Playa del Carmen to Mexico City due to the time zone difference. Plan for a bit cooler nights when traveling from Playa del Carmen in April since evenings lows in Mexico City dip to 15°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 21st (Sat) early enough to travel to Puerto Vallarta.
