There is so much to know in its streets that we made a very short list of places where you can take tours of all kinds. But if after all the plans we are going to propose you to see in Mexico City you still want more, here are the best sightseeing tours in Guadalajara.
The capital of Mexico
The world-renowned DF, now renamed CMDX, is a city so dense that it could be considered a province rather than a city. With a population of approximately 8.9 million inhabitants, it is one of the most important centers in the country. If you are interested in visiting the capital and many other cities in Mexico, we recommend hotel + flight packages to Cancun.
