Breathtakingly large, Mexico City provides a home for almost 9 million people living in nearly 1,700 distinct neighborhoods.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Museo Nacional de Antropologia and Museo Frida Kahlo. Get some cultural insight at Coyoacan and Historic Center (Centro Historico). Step out of Mexico City with an excursion to Zona Arqueológica de Teotihuacan Estacionamiento Puerta 5 in San Juan Teotihuacan--about 1h 15 min away. There's much more to do: delve into the lush surroundings at Bosque de Chapultepec, browse the exhibits of Museo del Templo Mayor, steep yourself in history at Basilica de Santa Maria de Guadalupe, and see the interesting displays at Museo Soumaya.

Capital city of the eponymous state, Oaxaca relies heavily on its colonial charm, its core a maze of tree-shaded alleys flanked by photogenic mansions, government buildings, and old churches.
Kick off your visit on the 9th (Fri): delve into the distant past at Monte Alban, thenhead outdoors with The Water Boils, and then admire the masterpieces at Rufino Tamayo Museum of Pre-Hispanic Art. Here are some ideas for day two: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Templo de Santo Domingo de Guzman, see the interesting displays at Museo de las Culturas de Oaxaca, thenexplore the galleries of Voces de Copal, thentake in the spiritual surroundings of Basilica de la Soledad, and finally indulge your thirst for a good beer at Oaxaca Brewing Company.
