There are plenty of things to do in Mexico City, from exploring cultural sites to discovering the area's exciting nightlife scene. Head to Templo Mayor Museum for a trip back to the time of the ancient Aztecs--you'll find an archeological site that was one of the most significant temples in the postclassical period of Mesoamerica. The largest cathedral in the Americas is located right downtown, built from the stones of an Aztec temple dedicated to the god of war. Food tours are readily available for visitors wanting to taste Mexico's distinctive dishes.

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.
