Lago del Bosque de Chapultepec sits in the largest city park in Latin America. As an attraction popular with the locals, the lake often has a large number of people, but join the crowds; some choose to rent a paddle boat. You may not want to swim here, however, as the water frequently receives negative reviews due to its lack of cleanliness. The park's other highlights include fountains and museums within close proximity.

  • The visit to the forest of Chapultepec is highly recommended. You can walk, you can stroll on the Lake, or simply you can visit all of the attractions that exist within Chapultepec: the "papalote" Museum of the child, the Feria de Chapultepec (an amusement park), on same side is the restaurant of the Lake which is excellent. From across this Chapultepec Zoo (it is free!), the Museum of Anthropology (must see!), other museums, and the National Museum of history (which is the castle of Chapultepec and is not to be missed) in the Middle, many monuments, pleasant landscapes and much forest and Park who walk. You can not walk all u n day, and indeed fair and Papalote zones are remote from each other and you arrive by car, but it is very good tour and highly recommended. It is from Starbucks to local restaurants and bookstores in the Park

  • The Lake is big enough, there is option to walk around and enjoy the scenery. But nothing like the experience of navigating through it. There are boats for rent for two people, for up to 4 people and even some in the form of Swan. You can choose between rowing or pedal boats. We chose of Cadence and think that was a good decision (tired, but more safe of advance without giving turns in circle lol). At the Lake you observe the landscape of trees, the buildings in the background, fish, ducks, etc. A beautiful activity outdoors.
