Mexico City Travel Tips

Loaded with historic and cultural attractions, Mexico City is a popular tourist destination. As the capital city of Mexico, it features a myriad of things to see and do. Getting to most attractions is fairly easy with the city’s subway, which is certainly a more affordable option than taking taxis; however, taxi rides are much less costly than one finds in major US cities. No matter where individuals travel, it’s important to bring along bottled water. Even residents tend to avoid drinking unfiltered water when they’re out and about.

When designing a Mexico City travel itinerary, visitors should plan to include some of the city’s most illustrious sites and attractions. Be sure to set aside some time to visit the Chapultepec Park, the Pyramid of the Sun, the famed Zocalo (historic city square), the world-renowned Museum of Anthropology, the National Palace, and the Palace of Fine Arts—the nation’s cultural heart. Dining in Mexico City is a real treat, and while travelers can find world cuisine’s represented in many parts of this sprawling city, for an authentic Mexican meal, head to Dulce Patria or Restaurante Nicos.
