Mexico City hosts a variety of buzzing locations including museums, restaurants, parks, and endless shops. To learn how Mexico evolved over time, visit the National Museum of Anthropology but keep in mind that most tourists say one day isn’t enough. If you’d prefer to spend pesos, shop El Bazaar Sabado—the Saturday market—for colorful, high-quality, one-of-a-kind creations, such as embroidered tops or wall hangings.

    Once you’ve worked up an appetite, hit Restaurante El Cardenal for locally sourced meals, such as the pork mole poblano. Walk it off later at Chapultepec, the largest city park in the Western hemisphere.
