Mexico City, Mexico
Mexico’s capital is a bustling metropolis filled with art, culture, music, and mouthwatering cuisine. A good starting point for any first-time tourist would be to visit Zócalo – the Plaza de la Constitución. This historic plaza offers exciting concerts, events, markets, and fantastic people watching. It is also right in the middle of Mexico City’s three biggest attractions: The National Palace, the Metropolitan Cathedral, and the Templo Mayor.

A true meeting of the ancient and modern, the colonial architecture stands in sharp contrast to the pre-Hispanic ruins from Mexico’s past.
