Other Things to Do…

  • A large and majestic archaeological site located about 25 miles (40 km) north of Mexico City. It’s famous for its large pyramids dedicated to the sun and the moon, but the site also contains beautiful murals and carvings and several museums through which you can explore the city’s fascinating history. This is one of the largest and most important archaeological sites in Mexico, and a must-visit attraction on a trip to Mexico City.
  • Tour the city’s most noteworthy areas with the “hop-on-hop-off” routes.
  • Xochimilco is a borough south of Mexico City mostly known for the colourful gondola style boats called trajineras. These wooden boats are hand-painted in bright colours and float along an intricate system of canals. There is an undeniable festive atmosphere at Xochimilco so this activity is best enjoyed with a group of others who are ready to have a drink, dance and join the fiesta.
