Mexico City


Where to start with a city so alive? Perhaps the smell of local food vendors, as you follow your nose on a tasting tour. Next, an immersive walk through the past as you uncover old paintings and Aztec ruins, each authentic, all a feast for the eyes. The buzz of Mexico City turns to music after, with street performers flourishing in a show of song and dance. For this is a capital wrapped in pure energy, showcasing a unique and vibrant way of life.

Explore Mexico City

Mexico City International Airport is the natural point of entry, with direct flights available from many European hubs. London, for instance, is a 10-hour journey non-stop. As one of the biggest urban spaces in the world, getting around can be tricky. However, chauffeured cars or Uber should always ensure a swift transfer.

Climate & seasons

High altitudes grant the capital a fairly stable temperature year round, meaning it’s almost always a good time to visit and a light jacket and scarf should be all you need. The start of September is met with Independence Day festivities. Similarly, Day of the Dead takes place in early November, and both offer exceptional cultural experiences.

Where to go

From a centre housing Mesoamerican, colonial and revolutionary heritage to the trendy neighbourhoods of Roma and Condesa, within the city itself there is much to explore. For spirited nightlife, head to Zona Rosa. Meanwhile, the ancient site of Teotihuacan is a 45-minute drive away. Further out is the Tepozteco Pyramid and the town of Taxco, a quaint hillside city known for its silver production. Venture beyond to the archeological ruins of Xochicalco, or picturesque Puebla, another worthy UNESCO stop.

What to do

The sheer wealth of culture gracing the streets means history, art and food lovers will all be well-entertained. Visit craft markets and malls galore, depending on your interests. Venture into the Museum of Dolores Olmedo or House of Frida Kahlo. The culinary scene ranges from fine dining to street food, all delicious and worthy of a taste. Motorheads have the Mexico Grand Prix on their doorstep. Day trips out of the city are easy to arrange.
