Mexico City is colorful and exciting. Transportation options are plentiful, allowing you to get out and explore every corner of the city with ease, and there are a ton of things to do. While I don’t always recommend it, the Hop On Hop Off bus is a great way to see Mexico City, because it goes to so many of the top attractions and makes getting around so easy.
If you want to visit when the weather is at its best, plan your trip for March – May, or in the later part of the year for shoulder season prices. It can get extremely hot during the summer, but it’s never really too cold.
Where to Stay in Mexico City
In such a large city, there are many different areas to stay in. I love it when there’s one stand out neighborhood where tourists should stay in a city, but that’s not really the case in Mexico City. Where you stay should depend on what you like most. History lovers should stay in Centro Historico or Reforma, food lovers should stay in Zona Roma, and shopping fanatics should stay in Polanco.
