Mexico City is one of my favorite cities in the world, and one of the reasons is because there is just SO much to do there! So it was really hard to narrow it down, but if you only had a few days to explore the city, these are the top 5 things you can’t miss (aside from eating ALL THE FOOD).
1. Tour the Centro Historico
Here you can see the famous Zocalo square, Catedral Metropolitan, Templo Mayor, Palacio Postal, and Fine Arts Palace, just to name a few.
2. See a Lucha Libre show
Lucha Libre is such a fun way to experience Mexican culture and entertainment. Order a massive cerveza, learn some “colorful” phrases to shout at the wrestlers, and watch as they try to unmask fellow wrestlers.
3. Visit Chapultepec Castle / Bosque de Chapultepec
Chapultepec Park in itself is a must, but the castle is the main attraction. Tour the castle grounds and gardens, visit the museum located inside, and see a stunning view of both the park and city from atop the hill.
4. Ride a trajinera at Xochimilco
The Xochimilco canals are what is left of the ancient canals of Tenochtitlán. Now it’s a festive and colorful gathering place for families and tourists alike, and an absolute party.
5. Visit the Teotihuacan Pyramids
These are about 45 minutes outside the city, and one of the most significant places in Mexico City’s history. You can tour the archeological site, ride ATVs, visit nearby caves, and even do a sunrise hot air balloon ride.
