When Do You Want To Go?

The Historic Centre of Mexico 

Did you know that Mexico City used to be a lake? Before the Spanish arrived in 1521, this was the ancient Aztec city of Tenochtitlan. This island capital was once surrounded by Lake Texcoco and was home to more than 200,000 people. Today you can still see the remnants of this significant archaeological site right in the heart of the Historic Centre.  

A day trip to Teotihuacán, also known as “The City of the Gods” is an absolute must. Here you will see colossal pyramids, which were once used for human sacrifice by the Aztecs. Ride a hot-air balloon at sunrise to get the best views of Teotihuacan

There are more than 180 museums in Mexico City. The most visited museum is Museo Frida Kahlo, located in the Casa Azul, where this influential artist lived for most of her life, the museum showcases her unique art and personal possessions. The National Museum of Anthropology should also not be missed. Visiting here will be a great opportunity to visit the 686-hectare Chapultepec Park and the 18th-century castle. 

Xochimilco is also a great day trip. Ride colourful gondola-like boats through an extensive canal system passing by numerous food vendors and fun mariachi bands.  

Visit between mid-June and mid-August for a truly magical experience in Nancamilpa, a few hours outside of Mexico City. Here, every evening fireflies light up the sky, flashing and darting about, looking for a mate, it’s like something out of a fairytale.

The Area

The Zocalo (main square) is the beating heart of the city. From here discover ancient Aztec ruins to the decadent Palace of Fine Arts and meander through cobbled streets like you are truly stepping back in time. Stay in boutique hotels and dine-in restaurants once home to aristocrats serving the best of Mexican cuisine. 

The neighbourhoods of La Condesa and Roma Norte are considered the safest in Mexico City. Here you will find tree-lined streets with cosy restaurants, ritzy jazz cafes and underground speakeasies.  

Juarez is considered the modern financial district of Mexico City, with towering skyscrapers, street food stalls serving fresh tacos and vibrant nightlife. Spend an evening sipping cocktails from one of the rooftop bars or watch the acrobatic sport of Lucha Libre (Mexican Wrestling). 

Best Time To Go

The best time to visit Mexico City is during the dry season, which usually lasts between October to May. The wet season usually lasts between June and September, with July experiencing the heaviest rainfall. The average temperature is around 18°C. We also recommend attending the Day of the Dead festival in early November.
