Day Trip to the South of Mexico City



Description:

For any first time visitor to Mexico City there are a few "must-do's." Here is a perfect way of getting some of those out of the way in a one day serving (should you be limited for time). This day trip is devised so you can mix sitting-down time with a good dose of walking around, some sun, and the much needed Mexican culinary delights. There is a little for the architecture lover, something for the art aficionado, some good suggestions for food and drinks, and also a suggestion for a visit to Xochimilco, Mexico's version of Venice! Enjoy.

Day 1 - Mexico City


This is a fantastic way of seeing some of the highlights of Mexico City's South end of town. It is a crammed day full of variety, so start early. There are two portions that require walking (the Jardines and the Museo Dolores Olmedo) so take comfortable shoes. Here you will get a glimpse at the top end architectural gems as well as top art and the reknown water canals of Xochimilco. Enjoy!
