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 Frida Kahlo are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Get out of town with these interesting Mexico City side-trips: Cuernavaca (Spanish Language Institute - Day Course, Robert Brady Museum, &more), San Juan Teotihuacan (Piramide de la Serpiente Emplumada & Teotihuacan Pyramids) and Puebla (Museo Viviente, Zocalo, &more). There's still lots to do: browse the exhibits of Museo del Templo Mayor, steep yourself in history at Basilica de Santa Maria de Guadalupe, delve into the lush surroundings at Bosque de Chapultepec, and stroll through Monarch Butterfly Biosphere Reserve.
