Mexico City is a fabulous city to visit and one of the largest in the world, full of wonderful sights and sounds. In this bustling city you will not be short of places to explore, with the amazing historical sites and famous landmarks. Visit the city’s public square that is the second largest in the world next to Moscow Red Square, where many festivals are held throughout the year. The magnificent National Cathedral stands just outside the city, but like many of the historical sites in Mexico it is sinking into the ground. The National Anthropology Museum is a great day out for the family, there is so much to see, from Aztec relics to Mesoamerican artefacts, you will need a full day to see everything. Climb over the Pyramids of The City Of God, then after an exhausting few days exploring the magnificent sites take a relaxing but colourful boat ride down the canals amongst the Hanging Gardens. With their vibrant colours and exotic flowers they are a must see for flower lovers, who can also purchase some along the way.
Eating is quite an experience in Mexico, the most popular foods being Tacos or Tortillas that are filled with spicy fish, meat or vegetables. The most tasty food is found on the street vendors carts; if you would like something a bit more international though, you will find a variety of dishes being served in larger restaurants. Not forgetting those on a family budget, there are a few places where fast food can be purchased, but do as the locals do and have a Tortilla: experience the taste of Mexico.
Mexico City doesn’t have any beaches, but you can travel to Acapulco with its wonderful beaches like Condesa beach, set in a bay with white sands and clear water. There are many water sports available, from Deep Sea Diving to Jet Skiing, or you could horse ride along the beach and then relax in the baking sun along a stretch of beach that is close to all amenities and entertainment. Bear in mind that there are no life guards along the beach though and the current can be quite strong, so you need to keep a good eye on your children. You will also find a lot of vendors frequently harassing you, so if you want somewhere quieter try Icacos beach, you can also do some Para-gliding along this stretch of sand. There are loads of activities, like the family fun at the Water Park or swimming with Dolphins, that you can enjoy in the region. If you have the budget, why not fly over the city and beaches in a Hot Air Balloon? If you fancy something more daring they have Bungee Jumping, but it can be quite expensive, for a cheaper thrill you could instead watch the cliff divers. There is plenty do on the sun soaked beaches of Mexico.
You may be too exhausted from the day time activities to experience the vibrant nightlife of Mexico City, but you could relax with a fantastic night of entertainment ranging from the opera to the thrills of the circus. Once you’re in relaxing Acapulco though you can hit the amazing nightlife; from all night loud and crazy nightclubs to open air bars and the glitzy Casino that also houses a restaurant and a cinema for you to settle down and watch a movie with the family.
