Description

Mexico City is the nation’s capital. Vibrant, multifaceted and always on the move. It is the political, economic and cultural core of the Mexican Republic. Mexico City keeps between its streets and long avenues the hidden secrets and events that have shaped the nation. 
Stroll through its historic downtown, discover its imposing Cathedral and the Templo Mayor, which still preserves vestiges of what was once the great Aztec empire. On Paseo de la Reforma (Reforma Avenue) you can admire the Ángel de la Independencia (Angel of Independence) and recharge your batteries in one of the many restaurants that you will find in the Zona Rosa. 
One of the must-see sites is the Bosque de Chapultepec, where you can also visit the Castillo de Chapultepec (Chapultepec Castle), which was the home of Maximiliano and Carlota. In this area you will find a wide variety of museums, theaters, cultural and entertainment centers, as well as art galleries. If you go with your family you can also enjoy various activities on the lake. The Roma and Condesa neighborhoods stand out for their constructions of various architectural styles. They are also an excellent choice to go out to dance, dine or have fun in one of the bars and restaurants in the area. In the southern part of the city you will find more museums and exhibitions inside Ciudad Universitaria (University City). Arrive at the beautiful neighborhood of Coyoacán, which was the place where Frida Kahlo grew up. We also recommend you to visit San Ángel and Tlalpan, which retain their provincial essence amidst the great city. Your trip to Mexico City cannot be complete if you do not visit Xochimilco and take a tour of its canals aboard a colorful trajinera. On this tour you will try Mexican snacks and surely you will dance and sing to the tunes of popular music.
A few kilometers from the City you cannot miss the archaeological site of Teotihuacan, an ancient Atzeca city, with its colossal Pyramids of the Moon and the Sun.
Close to Mexico City you can also visit Puebla and Cholula in a day.
Discovering Mexico City and each of its corners is an experience you will never forget.
