My sister-in-law and myself traveled to Mexico City from Tucson, Arizona via bus. Wanted to see the terrain - was not disappointed. Purchased tickets to see the Ballet Folklorico while in Mexico City and it was wonderful! Do not miss it, I highly recommend it!

Dozens of dancers and musicians with amazing talent perform songs and dances plucked from Mexico's history. As a foreigner, I felt like I got a history lesson about various notable moments. I have no idea how they were able to do all of those costume...More

Obviously seeing anything in this historic and beautiful building is great but this show is not just some tourist trap or generic display of music and dance. We had tickets to go in the morning but some electrical issue forced us to go that night....More

This beautiful park was once the playground for the
wealthiest families in the colonial era, and is now
the perfect place where locals and visitors can spend
a sunny weekend afternoon to relax or shop for
souvenirs at the market. Kids can run around or grab a
