Mexico City

Mexico City

Mexico City is a sprawling concrete jungle that was rather poetically founded by the Aztecs during the early 14th century. At the time, the city was on a small island in the middle of a vast lake. It has since dominated the area of said body of water with a gargantuan urban sprawl that has seen it become the largest city in North America. Constantly buzzing with exciting Latin vibes that excite and entice through the brightest colours, most flavoursome food and ancient history, Mexico’s capital is a vibrant festival for the senses. Museums filled with significant historical artefacts and world-class art, mouthwatering cuisine served on every other street corner, immense architecture that echoes the city’s fascinating story, citizens that are unsurpassed in their passionately welcoming demeanour - the list of elements drawing travellers to this endearingly slow-moving yet frenetic city goes on.

This sprawling, complex, always changing megalopolis is a study in contrasts. From its epic street food to its chef-driven, pilgrimage-worthy restaurants, Mexico City is arguably the most exciting food city in the world. Its art scene—folk and cutting-edge contemporary—is equally dynamic. And its sophisticated hotels, grand public parks and boulevards, and chic shopping streets rival those of Europe. There’s no way you can see, taste, and do all you’ll want to in one visit. But don’t worry, it’s a place that gets deep under your skin. You’ll be back.
