Essentials in Mexico City

Zocalo: Zocalo, also known as Constitution Square, is the main plaza in Mexico City and is one of the biggest city squares in the world. City Hall and the Cathedral are located here and there’s almost always something going on, from protests to art festivals, markets and more.

Coyoacán: If you want to dive into Mexico’s artistic heritage, this is the place to be. Famous artists like Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera and Leon Trotsky lived around here and there are plenty of art galleries to explore.

Chapultepec Park: On a warm day, Mexico City can feel pretty muggy so big green spaces like this one are the perfect escape. There is a zoo, several museums and a castle to explore here. The Modern Art Museum is a must!
