Mexico City Day Trips

Mexico City is one of the largest, if not the largest, city in the world, with one of the world’s highest populations to go along with its size. In addition to a great amount of diversity, day trips to Mexico City also reveal quite a depth of history. Tours in Mexico City can include views of the historic city center as well as the modern side of Mexico City that continues to grow and emerge as the years pass.

Centro

The Centro district is the oldest district in Mexico City and the former city center of the old Mexico City. Day trips to Mexico City to tour the Centro district are by far most easily accomplished on foot. Cars tend to be unwelcome and more of a hassle than a convenience in the city center. The Zocalo is the main attraction for most travelers to this area of the city. Spend the morning strolling through this lively square which is today a great place to shop, enjoy a snack and absorb some of the culture of Mexico City. After relaxing in the Zocalo, head to some of the surrounding historical buildings and museums that can also be found in the Centro district. The Bellas Artes building and the Latinoamericana Tower are particularly popular for day trips to Mexico City.

Coyoacan

Former home of famous artists Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera, the Coyoacan district of Mexico City continues to thrive as a center for culture and art. Mexico City day trips through Coyoacan include tours of the homes of the famous artists, which have now been turned into excellent museums. Also worth touring on Mexico City day trips through this district is the Coyoacan Center. Plaza Hidalgo and Jardin Centenario are two squares located in the area which feature open air markets on Saturdays and Sundays. The area is also full of some interesting cafes and shops, the like of which won’t be found in any other areas of Mexico City or on other Mexico City day trips.

Zona Rosa

Tourists looking for the full tourist experience during their trips to Mexico City will want to make time to spend a day in the Zona Rosa district. Zona Rosa is the new city center of Mexico City and a great place for tours in Mexico City. Trips to Mexico City that wind through the Zona Rosa district will show guests a colorful array of bars, hotels, clubs, restaurants, bars, and individual vendors offering all kinds of services and goods.

Taxco and Ixtapan de la Sal

For many travelers who take trips to Mexico City, the desire to see the city is equal to the desire to see what lies beyond the city. Taxco, the fabled city of silver, is an excellent place to head for a day outside the city limits. Similarly, the spas of Ixtapan de la Sal are well known as a town that offers ancient spa treatments in a gorgeous and often inexpensive setting.

Whether you plan tours in Mexico City to learn about the history of the city or to see the ancient pyramids and historical landmarks of the city, a trip to Mexico City for even one day is an incredible experience.
