When visiting Mexico City, start at Zocalo, the city’s main square and one of the largest in the world. Here, you’ll find the stunning Metropolitan Cathedral, the National Palace, and random displays of Aztec music and dance. Walk down the Paseo de la Reforma to see some of the city’s tallest buildings and the Angel of Independence statue, a national treasure and symbol of victory for the Mexican people.
Check out the Coyoacan neighborhood, filled with music venues, theaters, and cafés offering classic Mexican meals at better prices than you’ll find in the more touristy parts of town. Then head to Xochimilco, an agricultural borough featuring long canals. Take a trip down the canals on a brightly-colored trajinera to see the wildlife preserve and floating gardens while you soak up the sunshine and float lazily downstream.
