All About Mexico City
Steeped in history, art, and culture, Mexico City is a fascinating destination to explore, offering something to entice every kind of traveller. What attracts many people here is the culinary traditions, and there’s no shortage of gastronomic options from fine dining to street food. When it comes to cultural history, CDMX (Mexico City) has a lot to offer with Aztec ruins set against ornate cathedrals and modern architecture. The city is so vast that you may want to start with the iconic sights in the centre. Start in Zócalo plaza and work your way outwards to visit the city’s historic sites and buildings nearby. There are also great day trips to the surrounding areas for nature buffs looking to hike and explore the breathtaking scenery. Whether you’re interested in the main sights or only the hidden corners, there is so much to see that the only thing you’ll be missing is more time.
When is the best time to stay in a vacation rental in Mexico City?
While any time of the year is a great time to visit Mexico city because of its overall warm weather, it is advisable to plan your travels in the dry months. The rainy season runs from May through October, with June to August seeing average rainfall all month long. Furthermore, peak summer also brings with it hot, humid weather. Spring, autumn, and winter are therefore the ideal times to plan your stay. This will make walking around more comfortable, and dining outdoors on a patio much more enjoyable. In the winter, the temperature rarely falls into the single digits, so even a light jacket will suffice for the colder season. Given its location, winter will also see longer days, which make it a great place to visit for those looking to escape northern winters, but don’t want to spend their vacation on a beach.
What are the top things to do in Mexico City?
Palacio de Bellas Artes (Palace of Fine Arts)
This UNESCO designated monument is an essential stop on any trip to Mexico City. Try to get tickets to a performance and see its stage. Head in a little bit early to take in all the finer details of its Art Deco and Art Nouveau details and artwork throughout. If you’re unable to see a show, the palace is also an art museum housing exhibitions and pieces.
You could spend all day just visiting the park, and you should, but dedicate some time to the Museum of Anthropology, too. Here you’ll learn about the cultural history of Mexico from ancient times. Across the park, Chapultepec Castle is a stunning architectural marvel whose hilltop vistas provide a unique view across the city.
Grab the metro or a cab and head down into the suburban borough of Coyoacan. You can walk around the streets in search of churros and a coffee in the morning before spending the afternoon in the iconic Frida Kahlo Museum. You’ll learn all about the renowned artist, her life, and because the museum is located in her old house, you will get a sense for how she lived.
