Mexico City Holiday Packages

In few places does history come alive as clearly as it does in Mexico City. Here you can visit ancient Aztec ruins, explore Spanish colonial architecture and catch a glimpse of famous artwork by 20th-century Mexican painters—and all this can be seen without even leaving El Zócalo, the city centre.

Things to Do in Mexico City

The best place to start your trip in Mexico City is in El Zócalo. Start with a walk through the Palacio Nacional, or National Palace, which has been the place of residence for rulers of Mexico since the Aztecs. After taking in this massive site, swing by the nearby Metropolitan Cathedral before heading to the Museo del Templo Mayor, a museum built around Aztec ruins that holds an impressive collection of precolonial artefacts. Other important landmarks near El Zócalo include the Palacio de Bellas Artes, which hosts some of the best national folkloric dance troupes, and Plaza Garibaldi, known for its street mariachi musicians.

To really get a feel for Mexican history, though, head south after snagging one of Wotif’s Mexico City car hire options. Check out the magnificent Chapultepec Park, where you can easily spend an entire day exploring the National Anthropology Museum, Museo del Caracol and Museo de Arte Moderno. Additionally, visit Xochimilco, a borough of Mexico City full of beautiful canals. You’ll want to take plenty of pictures of the man-made islands in these canals—many of which date back to before the colonial era.

Shopping, Dining & Nightlife

Mexico City holidays aren’t complete without loading up on souvenirs. The best areas for shopping in Mexico City are in the neighbourhoods of Polanco and Zona Rosa. Here you will find top designers, high-end shopping malls and elegant boutiques. If you are looking for more artisanal crafts, try the street market in Coyoacan on a Saturday morning.

A great place to enjoy Mexico City's cuisine is in the neighbourhood of La Condesa, which is filled with a variety of charming and trendy restaurants. If you want Mexico City's street food—like its famous quesadillas and atole—the Coyoacan Saturday market is sure to please. When the sun sets and you're ready for an evening of action, La Condesa is also a good neighbourhood to explore Mexico City's nightlife, as you’ll find clubs, bars and speakeasies—in other words, plenty of places to grab a drink. For a trendy evening, check out the very hip yet relaxed T Gallery. If you're looking for a unique mezcal based drink, swing by La Botica and specifically ask for their mezcal menu.
