Founded in 1521 and built upon the remains of Tenochtitlán, the Aztec capital.
You have to embrace the grandeur of Mexico City, though as its the largest city in the world and home to 20 million people you would need very long arms! We would suggest at least a few days to discover this lively and inviting city, best explored on foot.
Apart from having some excellent architecture, Mexico City has world-class museums, modern art murals, peaceful parks and plazas, and lively nightlife.
If you’re looking for something a little different, how about enjoying Mexico City with private dance lessons or learning real Mexican cuisine at a cookery class?
Head out of the city and explore the impressive pyramids of the Aztecs and their forbears such as Teotihuacán or Tula.
In recent times there’s been a resurgence in quality boutique hotels ranging from the old and quirky to the super modern set down tree-lined boulevards.
Takes a few days to discover but is well worth it
When to go: All year round
