About Mexico City

Mexico City often gets unfairly excluded from the mix of great North American travel destinations, but travelers here invariably discover the Distrito Federal offers countless surprises. The formidable pre-Columbian city of Teotihuacan, located just outside the city, rivals the Pyramids of Egypt in size, beauty and historic importance. The Centro Historico, home to the Aztec Templo Mayor, is a highlight for vacationers who simply enjoy walking through the Zócalo, the world’s third largest square behind Moscow’s Red Square and Beijing’s Tiananmen Square. Also atop many visitors lists of things to do is the Chapultepec park, complete with a zoo and many museums, including the National Museum of Anthropology, was regarded as one of the world’s most important museums dedicated to the field. For shopping and nightlife, check out the Polanco borough, one of the wealthiest in Mexico City – designers like Chanel and Hermes have shops here. When it comes time to use, the D.F. does not skimp on options or quality. Unique Mexican dishes and snacks like equities or Puebla can be found at institutions from your corner vendor to a five-star restaurant in the Polanco. For lodging, see in the Zona Rosa for the most reasonably priced hotels or in Polanco for swank stays.
