Mexico: Mexico City

Visit Us

It’s mind-bogglingly huge. Seen from the air, Mexico City, embracing over 20 million people, is a drained lake full of urban sprawl, located at 2,250m. But at ground level it exposes all the different aspects of its centuries of history dating back to the Aztecs: wander the secretive lanes around the city’s heart, the vast zócalo, dominated by its monumental cathedral; turn off a 4-lane highway into the arty colonial quarter of Coyoacán; or take a bus past silvery sky-scrapers down the noble Paseo Reforma – inspired by the Champs Elysées - to shady Chapultepec Park, to appreciate the contrasts. A metropolis with a burgeoning economy, it’s a city that demands attention, and admiration.

What our experts say

We usually prefer to stay in the centre near the Cathedral. It's great fun to stroll down the streets surrounding the Zócalo (central square) joining in the early evening 'paseo', and there are often events on in the square. Another tip is to take a public bus down the elegant Paseo Reforma from Alameda Park in the centre straight to Chapultepec Park to visit the wonderful Anthropology Museum: a must even for non-enthusiasts of museums..
