REGARDING THE Chapultepec TOUR ITSELF: We enjoyed listening to the long history and interesting culture of Chapultepec in a Saturday 11am morning tour with LEON. This tour could have easily been..... more »

A must see if you're visiting Mexico! There are museums, a castle, markets, food stalls, squirrels and lots of beautiful water fountains and peaceful areas. There's also a lake where you can paddle boat, which we did but it was quite hard to paddle and exhausted us quickly. My favourite place in Mexico City!
This is a must visit. Mexico City's Central Park. The forest is packed with things to do from traditional street food vendors to fine dining. There's a zoo, a botanical garden, and lakes. There are several museums including two former presidential residencies, one of them is the White House equivalent and the other is a castle! There's also a kid's science museum and the anthropology and history museum where you can see the original Aztec calendar. There's also an amusement park.
Great views and very photogenic. The castle has an outstanding view of the city and amazing features inside. Multiple gardens makes for a very relaxing view.
You better get in there with plenty of time. Enormous wood area, several fun destinations. Even though it is a wood, signals are all over the place and are easy to read. No one gets lost. Squirrels everywhere
This park has so much to do. I was here with my kids and we did the zoo (free) and a bunch of playgrounds including zip lining. They have peddle boats in the lake and there is a ton to do here....easily 4/6 hours can be spent here. Loved it...plus on Sunday they have tons of street performers and an open air market.
