Best places to visit in Mexico: Our pick #1
World class museums, numerous archaeological treasures, international cuisine and restaurants, amazing shopping centres, diverse nightlife, charming colonial neighbourhoods, and beautiful gardens and parks – Mexico’s capital really has it all. The city combines years of history with a fast-growing modern urban centre to provide visitors with days of possible activities and sights. Mexico City was originally built by the Aztecs in 1325 on an island in Lake Texococo. Zocalo, the city’s town square and historic heart, stands on the same spot as Montezuma’s palace once stood. The floating gardens of Xochimilco, which have been around for 700 years, still operate today as they did in the Aztec times. But Mexico City is not all about history – today, you can check out a bullfight at Plaza Mexico, a rodeo at Rancho del Charro, an evening of Lucha Libre, Mexico’s famous form of free wrestling, or perhaps a late night Mariachi performance at Garibaldi Plaza. One thing’s for certain – Mexico’s capital will keep you entertained.
