Overview

Mexico City is so big that you could easily spend a week in this city of over 20 million people and never get bored.

At an altitude of 2,250m, Mexico City can be head-spinningly huge but within its immensity lie many treasures and a colourful history dating back to the Aztecs in the 14th century.

Explore the fascinating Museum of Anthropology and the vast zócalo dominated by its towering cathedral. Then discover the wonderful floating gardens of Xochimilco and the house of renowned artist Frida Kahlo, Casa Azul. Browse the colourful wares of artisanal market La Ciudadela, then indulge in the city’s vast food scene.

Where to go when - our guide to Mexico City

Mexico City

The weather in Mexico City is wide and varied

Mexico City is mind-bogglingly huge. Wander through secretive lanes to a monumental cathedral, admire the arty colonial quarter of Coyoacán or relax in the shady Chapultepec Park. The city can be visited at any time as temperatures are agreeable year-round. There isn’t significant rainfall, though June - September are the wettest months. There are a deluge of exciting cultural events throughout the year: Independence Day on 16 September features celebrations all over the city; the Day of the Dead on November 1-2 is gruesomely colourful, while Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe on 12 December is Mexico's biggest religious festival, celebrated with a mass ceremony and a traditional fair.
