Destination Highlights

  • Templo Mayor

    Accidentally unearthed in 1978 by electricians, these ancient ruins were once the thriving center of the Aztec empire. Etched with prehistoric drawings, the ruins have become an archaeological site and museum.

  • Bosque de Chapultepec

    Hang with the locals at this scenic park that is double the size of New York’s Central Park. There’s a zoo, botanical garden, lake, and much more—plus plenty of green space perfect for a picnic.

  • Museo Frida Kahlo

    Visit the house where Mexican painter Frida Kahlo was born, lived, and died. The home has been impeccably preserved and displays artifacts from her everyday life, diaries, and half-finished portraits.
