Mexico City

City of Palaces

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 Arto Otra. Get some cultural insight at Museo Frida Kahlo 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: wander the streets of Coyoacan, admire the landmark architecture of Metropolitan Cathedral (Catedral Metropolitana), delve into the lush surroundings at Bosque de Chapultepec, and don't miss a visit to Paseo de la Reforma.

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.
