Breathtakingly large, Mexico City provides a home for almost 9 million people living in nearly 1,700 distinct neighborhoods.
Your list of things to see and do now includes Museo de Arte Popular, Mercado de Coyoacan, Arena Mexico, and other attractions. Let the collections at Museo Nacional de Antropologia and National Palace (Palacio Nacional) capture your imagination. Do your shopping at Polanco and Mercado De Artesanias La Ciudadela. Change things up with these side-trips from Mexico City: San Juan Teotihuacan (VOLAR EN GLOBO & Zona Arqueológica de Teotihuacan Estacionamiento Puerta 5). There's still lots to do: admire the masterpieces at Palacio de Bellas Artes, explore the historical opulence of Chapultepec Castle, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Basilica de Santa Maria de Guadalupe, and look for all kinds of wild species at La Condesa.
