Found this guide helpful

This guide is a quick 3-days itinerary of Mexico City showcasing its the past, present and what the city has in store for the future. Mexico City is the second largest city in the world. With it comes thousands of years of history and culture from the time the Mexica settled on an island surrounded by water where a golden eagle was biting a snake while perched on a prickly pear cactus to the Spanish reconquista and the Mexican revolution. The former Aztec capital, now Mexico City, showcases the strength and resiliency of the Mexicanos.

MattMarquez's City Tips

  • Tipping in restaurants and bars is usually around 10%. Don't forget your basic Spanish when calling for the bill, try saying "Me puede traer la cuenta, por favor".
  • Avoid hailing a cab on the streets at night especially when travelling alone. Try getting a number of a company tax and call them if you're planning to go home late.
  • Take note of the weather. Mexico City might be hot during the day but it can get extremely cold during night.
  • If you're planning to visit churches and cathedrals try going in pants or jean especially if there's a on-going mass. Shorts and slippers are not allowed inside.
  • Try getting a Tarjeta DF. It's a rechargeable prepaid card you'll use for STC Metro, Metrobús and the city's trolleybus and light rail systems.
  • Mexico City's metro train is VERY cheap and easy to use. Avoid rush hours if you're claustrophobic.

    Zocalo is your starting point in exploring the Historic Center of Mexico City. The National Palace, Templo Mayor and the Metropolitan Cathedral is within walking distance. If you're into folk dancing sometimes there will be Aztec street dancing around. I went here during Mexico's Dia de la Independencía and it was literally jam-packed! But what an experience it was!

    The National Palace (Palacio Nacional in Spanish) is the seat of the federal executive in Mexico. The site has been a palace for the ruling class of Mexico since the Aztec empire, and much of the current palace's building materials are from the original one that belonged to Moctezuma II. There are historic murals showcasing the history of Mexico. Particularly strong are the Aztec murals and some works of Diego Rivera.

    Smack in the middle of the city center, you will find the impressive Metropolitan Cathedral. It sits atop the ancient ruins of an Aztee temple, which still has some standing walls to view. The cathedral has withstood a fire and was, for some time, slowly sinking because of the soft clay soil it was built on. The cathedral was placed on the World Monument Fund's list of 100 most endangered sites, but removed from the list after reconstruction restored the building's integrity.

    Torre Latinoamerica used to be the highest building of Mexico City but even with it's title gone it is still one of the most iconic building in DF. Entrance fee was around 80 Mexican pesos, so it is pretty reasonable. The view from the observation deck is really breathtaking. You can see the Zocalo, Mexico's business district and the surrounding provinces and mountainsides on a clear day.

    The ruins of the former Aztec Capital of Tenochtitlan, now houses a museum that showcases the ruins of the former capital and all the artifacts that was found during its excavation. Food for thought: It is said that during the Spanish Reconquista the Spanish would build churches and cathedrals on top of the destroyed Mesoamerican temple to show their power over the natives and their religion's strength (Catholicisim) thus why the Catedral Metropolitana is right beside the ruins of Tenochtitlan.

    As a Catholic I have always wanted to go to the Basilica de Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe and it was indeed a sight to behold. On the outside the architecture was pretty simple but once you go in you get the feel of the 'holiness' of the facade as you see the altar being decorated by nice, Gothic interiors with the image of Our Lady of Guadalupe being displayed atop the altar while the Mexican Flag is surrounding it in its embrace. If you know Juan Diego's story and how Our Lady of Guadalupe appeared to him you'd know the relic of Juan Diego's tilma and how the image of Our Lady miraculously showed itself at the 'tilma' in front of archbishop Zumárraga.

    Top off Day 2 of your trip with a unique Mexican experience, watching Lucha Libre. I went to Arena Mexico last Dia de la Independecia so there were a lot of tourists around. You know when there's a lot of tourists there are also a lot of pesky and persistent scalpers and merchants that'll force you to buy lucha masks and other lucha libre equipment. I thought the neighborhood around Arena Mexico was kinda rowdy but when I went in it was literally vibrant and alluring. You can feel the fun and vibrant Mexican atmosphere inside the arena. People from all walks of life watch Lucha Libre in Mexico, be it people in business suits or the bystanders just wearing casual clothes. It really shows you the camaraderie of Mexicans. The show itself was very entertaining, from the scantily dressed ringside girls to Lucha Libre greats like Valiente and oh yeah, Porky. Haha. Plus, the crowd getting in the action, calling heel characters "aaaahhhhh P*to", "gorda" and "webos" was very funny. If you can speak and understand Spanish it'll make the experience more enjoyable and memorable. A MUST SEE when in Mexico.

    This is the last of the Aztec canals that run through Mexico City although I advise going here alone or try to book a tour before hand. Nonetheless Xochimilco gives us a glimpse of the beauty of the Aztec canal waterways and how Tenochtitlan might have looked during the Pre-Spanish period. The tour around the canals last from 40 mins to 1 hour and a half. If you're brave enough try going to the island of dolls (islas de las muñecas), one of the most scariest places on Earth.

    If you're into the arts La Casa Azul, the place where Frida Kahlo made her masterpieces is a MUST SEE. You get to see the where Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera lived and how they went on with their lives. Turning a house into an art museum put a personal touch to the already fascinating facade.

    Nice neighborhood to chill at. This is a must go-to place if you're going to Coyoacan as well as there adjacent with each other. This is a trendy spot for arts, museums and restaurants. If you're already here try checking out San Angel at Plaza San Jacinto and visit the Saturday Bazaar.

    End your 3 day visit of Mexico City with the vibrant nightlife of the Condesa Area. There's a lot to do here. There are a lot of good restaurants, bars and clubbing spots, from salsa dancing at Mama Rumba in nearby Roma and partying the night away at Jules Basement. Condesa also has a nice park in the form of Parque Mexico. Definitely a go-to place if you wanna have a nice night out at DF. If you wanna bar hop Roma, which is just next to Condesa, is a trendy spot as well.

    Tips
    • Take the Metrobús, which runs up and down Avenida Insurgentes. Drop off at Alvero Obregon, Sonora, Campeche or Chilpancingo
    • The Metrobús is the most convenient way to access Condesa and Roma.
    • There are a lot of clubs, bars of restaurants in Condesa. If you're planning to bar hop try going to Roma which is just at the opposite neighborhood.
