I LOVED Mexico City, the people were lovely, the food amazing. My biggest tip is to use Uber, it’s the cheapest way to get around and you have to as the city is HUGE. Getting from one place to the other takes 20 to 45 mins, and the cost in CAD for a ride would be $4-$7.
Mexico City has the most museums for a city in the world (1100+), the Museo de Anthropologie has beautiful architecture and exhibits that are stunning. Going to Frida Kahlo’s House was beautiful and inspiring, what a woman!
This is a wonderful cosmopolitan city, full of culture and it’s safe! It’s a perfect place to getaway for a weekend if you love cities 🙂
