Best Things To Do in Mexico City
There are many places to visit in Mexico, with Mexico City being a top choice. Even if you just have a couple of days in the city, you’ll be able to see and do a lot. It’s one of the more interesting cities to visit and I enjoyed my stay here.
Here are 25 exciting and unique things to do in Mexico City that you won’t want to miss.
1. Visit the Zocalo
There’s no better place to start a trip to Mexico City than in the Zocalo, the city’s main square and the heart of the Centro Historico neighborhood.
What you find in the Zocalo will depend on when you visit Mexico. When I travelled to Mexico City in December, I was greeted with a giant Christmas tree and an ice skating rink, but regardless of when you go, you’re guaranteed to find the Zocalo teeming with people.
