Mexico City may be one of the most heavily populated cities in the world, but it is packed with fascinating attractions to make it a recommended stop on any North American itinerary. With the fusion of cultures evident in its diverse neighbourhoods and architecture, Mexico City is home to Spanish-influenced churches as well as traditional Aztec temples. The city’s artistic heritage is in evidence at various galleries, including the excellent Frida Kahlo Museum. Meanwhile, the local markets are the place to pick up bargain local handicrafts and textiles, where the country’s penchant for devils and skeletons will be on display. With impressive open squares throughout the city and the deliciously moreish local cuisine to be found on every corner, Mexico City is a joy which is waiting to be discovered. We recommend combining a visit here with a stay in La Paz on the Baja California Sur.
