A week off + cheap flights + 3 hr. flight=Mexico City! That's the kind of math I like to do. Having been to the beautiful resort areas of Mexico, we wanted to explore a different part of Mexico and I'm so glad we did! There is so much history to see here, the food is amazing and the people are friendly! I wish more people got to see the positive side of Mexico instead of what is always portrayed on the news.
Templo Mayor is close to the Zocalo and it's definitely worth a visit. This temple, which predates Spanish colonization, dates back to the 1400's! Don't miss the extensive museum, which is included in the price of admission. Admission costs 70 pesos (that's about $4 USD), which is basically a latte!
