Mexico City

City of Palaces

Breathtakingly large, Mexico City provides a home for almost 9 million people living in nearly 1,700 distinct neighborhoods. Once the political and administrative center of the powerful Spanish colonial empire, this giant city now represents one of the world's major hubs of finance. A tour of Mexico City leads visitors on an adventure through history, with numerous landmarks and historical sites providing a glimpse into the pre-Columbian past of the Americas. Known as the "City of Palaces" because of the many stately buildings in the historical core, this urban center also boasts more museums than any other city in the world. With so many indoor tourist attractions in Mexico City, many visitors never see its parks and plazas, ideal places to soak up local sights and sounds. Whether you only want to go to Mexico City, or have a whole adventure planned, Inspirock has you covered with our user-friendly Mexico trip planner.

Where to stay in Mexico City

Head straight to the trendy neighborhoods of Roma or La Condesa if you're looking for an artsy atmosphere--you can find design-conscious hostels and boutique hotels nestled among the many bars, restaurants, cafes, and galleries. For easy access to the city's most beautiful architecture, you can't beat staying in the historical center, although the neighborhood's UNESCO-listing means you'll only find smaller, old-fashioned options there. You can also indulge in a few luxury nights in the fancy Polanco district, or look for a more budget-friendly option in the popular Zona Rosa.
