City of Palaces

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 Arqueológica de Teotihuacan Estacionamiento Puerta 5 about 1h 15 min away. There's still lots to do: learn more about the world around you at Museo Nacional de Antropologia, admire the masterpieces at Palacio de Bellas Artes, savor the flavors at Food & Drink, and make a trip to Zocalo.
