Holiday In Mexico City

From the markets of Roma to the history of Centro and adventures through the canals of Xochimilco, the different regions of Mexico City fit together to create a work of art called “Your New Favourite Holiday Destination”. 

Speaking of art, Mexico City has that too. Combining all the best of Mexico into one huge, diverse metropolis, the "City of Palaces" is sure to dazzle.

Things to Do in Mexico City

You could spend your whole Mexico City holiday in Centro Historico, exploring everything from the largest cathedral in the Americas to the Aztecs’ most famous temple. It all starts at the Zocalo, though. Don’t miss the high-energy—okay, slightly insane—Concheros dance, a ceremonious Aztec-inspired performance that takes place in the main square every day. Do some exploring, then return at sunset for the lowering of the flag, one of the best snaps you’ll get.

Need a break from all that walking? Take one of lastminute.com.au’s Mexico City car hire options on a day trip 20 km south to the canals of Xochimilco. Ditch the wheels at Embarcadero Cuemanco and let one of the famed trajinera boats ferry you around. Tour the more well-known San Bernardino de Siena church and art museums (try to catch a glimpse of the Mexican hairless dogs at Museo Dolores Olmedo), then make a side trip to the spooky Isla de las Munecas (Island of the Dolls) if you want to freak out your friends on social media.

Shopping, Dining & Nightlife

If you’re looking to really drop some dinero, you want Mexico City holiday packages in the northwest neighbourhood of Polanco, where you can live it up at the luxury shops. For funky gifts from local art to skateboards, head to Roma, south of downtown. Got darker needs (or just want to shock your boss)? Visit the Mercado Sonora, aka the Witches’ Market, southeast of Centro, and bring home potions and talismans for your loved ones instead of boring T-shirts.

Polanco is the place to be if you’ve got a dinner date to impress. Prepare your wallet and make a reservation: This high-class neighbourhood is typically valet-only. Aspiring hipsters and travellers who want to live like a local should get their bum in a seat in one of Roma’s taquerias or panaderias. However, no holiday in Mexico City is complete without delicious street food. Adventurous eaters should check out Mercado San Juan for crunchy chapulines (grasshoppers) and escamoles (ant larvae). Or, you know, just stick to tamales.

Time to expand your drinking vocabulary: On holidays in Mexico City,precopeo is “the drinks before the drinks”. Don’t overdo it, though, because you’re gonna be partying ’til sunrise in the rooftop lounges and basement dance floors of Centro. Need proof that Mexico City knows how to rage? Thursdays are just known as “little Fridays” (juebebes)! They’ve got the hangover cures of a party city too: Everything from spicy chilaquiles to tripe soup—and of course, morning beers.
