As the popularity of Riviera Maya destinations like Cancun and Playa del Carmen increases, visitors to the Yucatan Peninsula now seek less crowded, more authentic Mexican destinations.

10 Things to do in Mexico City

10 Things to do in Mexico City

Whenever someone asks me where I would recommend them to travel next, I always say Mexico City. This place is jam-packed with world heritage sites, mouth-watering street food, and friendly people. Even though the city is home to over 26 million people, you won’t feel like another face in the crowd. What Mexico City offers most is character. It seems as if each street tells an ancient story here, and most restaurants have photos of their establishments from the days of black and white. Once you figure out how to navigate the metro and find your go-to taco stand, you will feel like a local in one of the world’s largest cities.
