  • The day we visited it was a Saturday so it was very crowded. We were able to see 90% of the exhibits. It was humid and hot inside the buildings because of the amount of people. The views from the top of Chapultepec Palace overlooking CDMX are amazing. Plan to spend a lot of time here. We visited on a Saturday day and the place was very crowded. There was humidity and heat in the showrooms because of the large number of people there were. The view from the Castle to the CDMX is spectacular. Make plans to spend several hours there. This place can't be appreciated if you're in a hurry. There is an elevator for people with walking limitations. I highly recommend it.

  • A nice park to walk around and rest in Mexico City. Something full and a little sloppy; but very relaxing.

  • 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.
