Thinking of visiting the nation’s capital? If so, and you are organizing the best possible vacation with all kinds of plans, we offer you several recommendations and ideas for you to choose the tourist places you like the most in this dense metropolis.
Magical places close to Mexico City
As a magical place, away from the big crowds, we can find the Chapultepec forest. Considered one of the largest parks in the world thanks to its more than 600 hectares of museums, walking and biking trails, lakes, fountains and much more.
Another possible magical place for its great historical past could be Teotihuacan. This famous pre-Hispanic city is a must-see for any visitor on vacation in or around Mexico City. It was a great metropolis that has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1987.
It is also not surprising that we recommend you to visit the Pueblo Mágico San Miguel de Allende, also a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2008.
Places to visit in Mexico City
One of the essential places to visit during your visit to the capital is Coyoacán. In the center of the territory you will find a large square composed of the wonderful Hidalgo and Centenario gardens. There is also the former San Juan Bautista Convent or the Municipal House.
For those looking for cultural plans, the Jumex Museum will be an excellent excursion in which to get to know new emerging artists and their contemporary works of different characteristics.
In Mexico City, visitors also regularly visit the Casa de los Azulejos, a building that shines for its beautiful architecture and curious family history, or the Palacio de Bellas Artes, famous for the musical experiences that take place inside.
Things to do in CDMX
If you like art, you will have thought about visiting the Frida Kahlo Museum, one of the residences where the artist lived and one of the most visited. The house known as the blue house is full of old personal objects, paintings and much more for you to get to know this incredible painter in depth.
Another particular cultural center is the Museum of the Mummies, located in the middle of Mexico’s National Zone of Historic Monuments. Several mummified bodies of which 100% of their true identity is unknown are exhibited here.
Beaches near CDMX
Sea lovers will need to include in their itinerary some beaches relatively close to Mexico City and we recommend a couple of them. First you can head to Barra de Cazones, one of the closest beaches, approximately 280 kilometers.
We also have the Tecolutla beach in Veracruz. Although it is more than 300 kilometers away, there are different means of transportation to get there if you are in need of a beach.
You can’t miss Acapulco’s beach either. In fact, this is a wonderful destination where you can spend several days getting to know its particular history or enjoying its nocturnal charm.
