Mexico City is a feast for the senses. This sprawling metropolis, one of the world’s most populous cities, crackles and fizzes with life. It bustles day and night with workers, tourists and revellers drawn onto the streets in search of the traditional markets, food (dishes from all Mexico’s 31 states can be savoured here), nightlife and culture.
The oldest part of the city runs out from the Zocalo, the plaza, for several blocks. This is where the Spanish started to build (on the ruins of Tenochtitlan, the capital of the Aztec Empire) modern Mexico City. There are Aztec ruins, grand Spanish colonial buildings, Baroque palaces and modern offices all within a few streets.

Don’t worry about getting around in Mexico City, one of the biggest cities in the world. The public transportation system is efficient and cheap. The metro runs from 6am until midnight and is clean and easy to use. The bus system is also extensive, but you might find it easier to use if you speak Spanish. Minibuses can be a better option than buses, since they are smaller, faster and more comfortable. They can drop you off anywhere along their route. With so many people in the city, public transportation can be very crowded during rush hour. Be aware of your surroundings during rush hour and at night; crime levels are high on the subway and buses. Central Square’s cobble-stoned streets can be a lovely area to walk around. If you want to take a taxi, be safe and call ahead for one, instead of hailing a cab. Many hotels and restaurants can help you call a cab. If you’re planning on driving in the city, know that it can be a tricky place to manoeuvre and prices are high. Additionally, cars are prohibited from driving in the city one day a week. Find out which days you are restricted by checking the last number of your license plate against a list at the tourist office. When smog levels are high, as they are in December and January, numbers can come up more than once per week.
