City of Palaces

Breathtakingly large, Mexico City provides a home for almost 9 million people living in nearly 1,700 distinct neighborhoods.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Museo Nacional de Antropologia and Palacio de Bellas Artes. Zona Arqueológica de Teotihuacan Estacionamiento Puerta 5 and Museo del Templo Mayor are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Get out of town with these interesting Mexico City side-trips: Puebla (Museo Viviente, Zocalo, &more), San Juan Teotihuacan (Piramide de la Serpiente Emplumada & Teotihuacan Pyramids) and Cuernavaca (Spanish Language Institute - Day Course, Robert Brady Museum, &more). And it doesn't end there: tour the pleasant surroundings at Monarch Butterfly Biosphere Reserve, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Basilica de Santa Maria de Guadalupe, make a trip to Zocalo, and ponder the world of politics at National Palace (Palacio Nacional).

Capital city of the eponymous state, Oaxaca relies heavily on its colonial charm, its core a maze of tree-shaded alleys flanked by photogenic mansions, government buildings, and old churches.
