There are few cities as colourful and as energetic as Mexico City. Famous for its art and incredible food, Mexico can deliver galleries and tacos in bucket loads. But more than that, stroll the cool neighbourhoods of La Condesa and Roma Norte, and you’ll discover some of the best restaurants in the world, and leafy boulevards lined with boutiques, bakeries and bars that attract a young crowd. From Mexico City you can travel to some of the most iconic religious sites in Latin America, as well as National Parks, beautiful medieval towns and decadent beach resorts. Contact Brightsun Travel and explore our all-inclusive holidays to Mexico City, and experience for yourself the energy and culture of Mexico, which attracts tourists from around the globe. Let’s start at the city’s edges. Just 100 kilometres outside of Mexico City and you could witness one of nature’s spectacles in the Monarch Butterfly Biosphere Reserve, where millions of butterflies take refuge in Mexico’s warm jungles every year. Alternatively, head 4 hours north to the Sierra Gorda Biosphere Reserve, and you could spot jaguars in the wild.
In the city itself, you could head to El Bazar Sabado at the weekend, and shop for a range of Mexican handicrafts. And one of our favourite spots in the city is the Mercado de San Juan, where you can shop for gourmet produce and take a lunch of cheese and wine. After that, take a mandatory trip to the Museo Frida Kahlo, and see where Mexico’s world famous artist lived. Then head to the Palacio de Bellas Artes and the Museo Mural Diego Rivera for some of the city’s artistic hot spots. If it is food you are after, all around the city you will find Fondas (traditional eateries) and taco stands where you can try incredible local food for just a few pesos. Or you could dine at Rosetta, run by Elena Reygada, Latin America's Best Female Chef 2014, and eat some of the best European food in the country. End up in Chapultepec, one of the largest city parks in the Western hemisphere, and take a stroll amongst beautiful jacaranda trees.
