Mexico City Highlights

Historic Centre and Zócalo

The beating heart of Mexico City is the Historic Centre and Zócalo absolutely overflowing with history. The Zócalo is one of the largest city squares in the world and lined by architectural wonders like the National Palace and the Metropolitan Cathedral. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Historic Centre offers tonnes to explore through its vibrant markets, narrow streets, and colonial-era buildings. The Templo Mayor shouldn’t be missed, showcasing ruins located where the Aztec city, Tenochtitlan, was historically settled.


Delve further into Aztec history and visit Teotihuacán located just outside Mexico City. This ancient city is a testament to Mesoamerican civilization giving visitors a fascinating glimpse back in time. Here you will find the iconic Pyramid of the Sun and the Pyramid of the Moon displaying the greatness of a city that thrived between the 1st and 7th centuries AD. Looking for something extra special? Why not arrive by private hot-air balloon to take in this incredible site with a birds eye view.


A mesmerising suburb in the southern reaches of Mexico City is something you would never expect. Aztec-made waterways link man-made islands which were originally used to farm much of the food for the city of Tenochtitlán. These picturesque canals offer a glimpse into Mexico City’s natural and cultural heritage. Trajineras (flat-bottomed and brightly coloured boats) festooned with flowers and other colourful decorations will take you on a leisurely ride through the network of waterways where you’ll come across floating gardens, artisans, food vendors and mariachi bands along the way.

San Ángel and Coyoacán

Also located in the southern part of Mexico City, San Ángel and Coyoacán are two charming neighbourhoods that need to be visited. San Ángel draws you in with its bohemian ambiance and art scene – meander through cobbled streets lined with art galleries and markets. Visit on a Saturday and venture into El Bazaar Sábado for artisanal crafts. Coyoacán on the other hand has a more historic feel with an artistic soul. Fascinating museums and inviting cafes are waiting. Explore the iconic Church of San Juan Bautista or the Frida Kahlo museum.

La Roma and Condesa

These trendy neighbourhoods contribute to Mexico City’s urban scene. A bohemian vibe, eclectic architecture, and quirky cafes are all found in La Roma whereas Condesa boasts Art Deco buildings, leafy parks, and an array of gastronomic delights.
