    It is the lung of the city, I enjoyed my walk with pure air, feeding squirrels and taking photographs...

    Definitely a place to visit just by so much history there in its corners, it is a wide, green space with a big beautiful Lake, an imperial Castle, the only one in America, and that was the scene of the battle of the invasion of the United States to Mexico, a beautiful and well kept Zoo, monuments, galleries, stalls and restaurants as well as headquarters of the National Auditorium and museums. Chapultepec forest has hernosos landscapes, as well as all the conveniences to enjoy it, the only thing, avoid to go Sunday and that a tide of people visit it.

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.
