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.

To find photos, where to stay, more things to do, and tourist information, go to the Mexico City trip itinerary maker tool.

The Route module shows you travel options from your home to Mexico City. In July in Mexico City, expect temperatures between 27°C during the day and 15°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 18th (Thu) early enough to travel to Cancun.

Few destinations in Mexico dazzle visitors quite like Cancun, a modern resort town filled with glitzy hotels sitting on picturesque and well-developed Caribbean beaches.
Explore Cancun's surroundings by going to Parroquia Catolica de San Jose (in Puerto Morelos) and Quinta Avenida (in Playa del Carmen). There's much more to do: get a new perspective on things with Boat Tours & Water Sports, make a trip to Av Kukulkan, kick back and relax at Playa Delfines, and look for gifts at Plaza Las Americas.

For other places to visit, ratings, and other tourist information, go to the Cancun road trip site.

You can fly from Mexico City to Cancun in 5 hours. Alternatively, you can drive; or take a bus. The time zone difference moving from Central Standard Time (CST) to Eastern Standard Time (EST) is 1 hour. Plan for somewhat warmer temperatures traveling from Mexico City in July, with highs in Cancun at 36°C and lows at 28°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 21st (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
