Xmas in Mexico City
Mexico City – Safer than its reputation
The contrasts in the metropolis are numerous. CDMX offers history, sights, restaurants and a lot more.
It is said that Mexico City is not safe, we have never felt threatened and there are safe areas to avoid, but the ones you visit as a tourist are safe.
First stop at is the Centro Historico. At the Zocolo, (the main square) events take place, and it borders the Catedrale Metropolitana des la Cuida de Mexcio, as well as the Palacio National.
More sights to explore:
- Torre Latinoamerica
- Palacio de Bellas Artes
- Palacio de Correos de México – old post office
- Templo Mayor – excavation site
- Casa de los Azulejos – covered with tiles from Puebla im Talavera-Stil
- Paseo de la Reforma
- Parque Chapultepec & Castillo
- Museo Nacional de Anthropología
- Die UNAM – Universidad Autonoma de Mexico
- City districs
- Coyoacan, Tlalpan, San Angel & Xochimilco
The entrance fees for museums, parks and the excavation site are moderate (around 3-4 €) . We have explored much of the city with one of the sightseeing buses but with the metro you can also easily explore the city.
You should plan at least 2-3 days for sightseeing who can do longer.
Mexico City Impressionen
Teotihuacán – the most important ruins of Mexiko
The terrain is very spacious and the entrancefee relatively cheap. We had a guide for about 40 euros who showed and explained everything important to us. It makes sense to be there early and during the week, otherwise the place will be super crowded. You should bring enough drinks and do not forget some sunscreen even a hat is useful. On the premises are many dealers where you can buy souvenirs.
