About Mexico City

Mexico City is the country’s largest and most populated metropolitan area that is also known as the federal district. Mexico is the main cultural and economic hub of the country, and it also houses the federal government offices. The city is situated in a town that various indigenous groups inhabited from 100 to 900 A. D. That is why the city holds so much cultural and historical importance. Another interesting fact about Mexico City is, it is built over a lake and is sinking with each passing day. It has been estimated that it has sunken for about 9 meters in some areas over the past 100 years.

Today, Mexico City comprises neighborhoods that are a mix of poverty and richness. The south side of the city houses super-rich neighborhoods, but many parts of the east and north side are poorer and a little unsafe. Even though with all this disparity among the population, there are many cultural sites you can visit all across the city. The most prominent attractions are; the Historic Center – home to more than 1400 buildings dating back to the 16th to 19th centuries, the UNAM Campus, Luis Barragan’s House and Studio, and Xochimilco. These sites are also listed on UNESCO World Cultural Heritage List.

Turning to the delicious Mexican cuisine, no place does it better than the Mexican City itself. Culinary tastes are brought together here from all over the country that result in finger-licking good food dishes. From street stalls to 5-star dining, you’ll not get disappointed with food anywhere in the city. Some of the must-try items here include tacos, tamales, quesadillas, gorditas, and pambazos.

For shoppers, there is an enormous variety of shopping stores to cater to each taste. From fresh fruits and vegetable carts at local markets to small bazaars selling craft stuff, to luxury brands to the huge shopping malls, you’ll find almost everything here. And the best part is, shopping here is affordable and won’t break your budget!

The climate of Mexico City remains temperate throughout the year. Here, summers are hot, and even winter months feel like spring during the daytime and cooler at night. But the climate can get really frustrating from November to January as the pollution increases dramatically, leaving some people with respiratory issues. Depending on the time of your visit, you may get a sore throat and runny nose with watery eyes. But that is not the case with everyone. It solely depends on your immune system and how quickly you react to it. The best way to deal with it is to take some rest, drink plenty of fluids, and don’t make yourself lethargic.

The majestic Mexico City is worth visiting at least once in a lifetime. The city is still one of the most vibrant and charismatic cities in the world. Take all your time and explore all the attractions this city has to offer and enjoy the beautiful experience of one of the most inspiring and exciting cities in the world.
