About Mexico City
Fascinating, vibrant, with a life that doesn’t sleep not even at night, Mexico City dresses up to welcome visitors from Mexico and the world with an array of options for all tastes and ages. The capital city is going through a renovation that is making it the tourist destination on trend, becoming even more attractive for business, convention and family tourism and for travelers attracted by the many concerts and international events held in Mexico City each year.
Formerly known as Federal District, this city has 16 boroughs and each of these has Towns, Neighborhoods and Districts. Those that cannot be left aside in a tourist visit to Mexico City include the Coyoacan Borough, which has among its places of interest the Ciudad Universitaria (UNAM’s main campus), the Churubusco Plaza and Museums like the Leon Trotsky Museum and the Frida Kahlo Museum; Xochimilco, with its traditional “chinampas”, declared Cultural World Heritage Site in 1987 and the Miguel Hidalgo Borough, where the Chapultepec Castle is.
The Cuauhtemoc Borough deserves a special mention because within its limits is the Historic Center of Mexico City, the city’s heart. Visitors will be amazed by the impressive range of gastronomic options, stores and shops of all kinds and brands, banks and big corporates that make the daily and night life of the city. In the Cuauhtemoc Borough one can find the Condesa District, which attracts visitors with its very unique bohemian style.
Do not forget to check the dates of the many concerts in Mexico City throughout the year, there’s something for everyone! The city has welcomed national and international artists such as Paul McCartney, the Rolling Stones, Adele and others who have played in the different arenas of the city, including the Foro Sol, Azteca Stadium and Arena Ciudad de Mexico.
