Breathtakingly large, Mexico City provides a home for almost 9 million people living in nearly 1,700 distinct neighborhoods.
Visiting Bosque de Chapultepec and La Condesa will get you outdoors. Get a sense of the local culture at National Museum of Anthropology (Museo Nacional de Antropologia) and Chapultepec Park. Go for a jaunt from Mexico City to San Juan Teotihuacan to see Zona Arqueologica Teotihuacan about 1h 20 min away. And it doesn't end there: explore the world behind art at Palacio de Bellas Artes, get a sense of history and politics at National Palace (Palacio Nacional), see the interesting displays at Frida Kahlo Museum, and explore the historical opulence of Chapultepec Castle.
