Mexico City Holidays

A fascinating mix of old and new, Mexico City is home to both thousand year-old ruins and gleaming skyscrapers: ancient grandeur meets edgy modernity.

To see the city’s layered history, take a stroll through Zócalo, the world’s second largest public square, bordered by the baroque Catedral Metropolitana. Or, visit the Aztec ruins of Templo Mayer to discover artefacts discovered 450 years after the temple’s demise. We also recommend taking a boat down the historic canals, the perfect way to soak up the city’s beauty and bustle.

Contrast your visit to Mexico City by heading to the Yucutan Peninsula for some pure fun in the sun. Or, for a mix of history and sunshine, head to the Pacific Coast where you’ll find Mayan ruins right by the beach. 

Destination Highlights
  • Visit Xochimlco, a UNESCO World Heritage Site
  • Uncover history at the National Museum of Anthropology
  • Head to Mercado Roma, a popular hot spot for street food and a great atmosphere
  • Blend in with the locals at traditional cantinas

  • Katie

    Destination Specialist

    "Walking the streets of any city can be exhausting after a few days, so after your stay in Mexico City head to one of the stunning Mexican beach resorts in either Puerto Vallarta, Los Cabos or Cancun".
