Breathtakingly large, Mexico City provides a home for almost 9 million people living in nearly 1,700 distinct neighborhoods.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Mexico City: San Juan Teotihuacan (Pyramid of the Sun & Zona Arqueologica Teotihuacan). There's still lots to do: examine the collection at National Museum of Anthropology (Museo Nacional de Antropologia), explore the ancient world of Templo Mayor Museum, steep yourself in history at Chapultepec Castle, and wander the streets of Historic Center (Centro Historico).

For maps, reviews, and tourist information, read our Mexico City vacation builder.

Mujica International Airport. In June, plan for daily highs up to 28°C, and evening lows to 16°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 23rd (Sat) to allow time to travel to Madrid.
