Day 5: Chapultepec Castle, Museum of Anthropology and Polanco

Visit the Chapultepec Castle

Chapultepec Castle is located in a very large and beautiful area of Mexico City known as the Chapultepec forest. Chapultepec is sometimes compared to Central Park in New York as they are two very iconic parks in capitals.

Chapultepec is twice the size of Central Park! It has a museum area, a zoo, a running track, botanical gardens, bookstores, etc...

The activity of visiting Chapultepec Castle does not need much explanation. Get ready to walk because to get to the castle you will have to climb a mountain.

Visit the Museo Nacional de Antropología and other museums

It seems to me that the National Museum of Anthropology in Mexico City is not so well known internationally.

For me it is comparable to the most important museums in the world such as the Louvre Museum and the British Museum. It really is impressive! From the majestic entrance with the fountain in the center you will see what I am talking about.

Prepare your visit because seeing the museum well can take several hours.

Nearby there are other museums such as the Tamayo Museum and the Mexico City Museum.

For years I have received many visits from friends and family mainly from Europe and the USA who want to discover Mexico City.

Today a friend from Spain asked me to help her organize a trip to Mexico for her best friend who wants to celebrate her honeymoon in Mexico. So I decided to make this trip itinerary to Mexico City that I hope will serve her and everyone who is reading this trip.

Mexico City is a special and unique place in the world. Maybe I think so because I am originally from Mexico City and have spent most of my life there. I spent my childhood and adolescence in a house very close to the center of Coyoacán in the southern part of the city. Later I moved to the Condesa neighborhood and spent a few years living there with roommates from Spain, Italy and Austria.

What is this itinerary about? 

I am going to try to guide you so that you visit the places you have to see in Mexico City and also visit others that I am personally going to recommend. I will try to organize the itinerary so that every moment is worth it. Mexico City is so big and so diverse that obviously we will not have time to see everything and you will most likely want to return later. There will be a lot of tourist activities and also a lot of delicious food!

The first day I am going to recommend that you go to dinner at a taqueria. The reason is that I don't know what time you arrive and usually everyone arrives very tired and sometimes late.

On the second day I am going to recommend you to visit the pyramids of Teotihuacan. Without a doubt, it is one of the places that you cannot miss. The visit is quite tiring, and in my experience, many prefer to do it on the first day. If you don't want to do something so tiring the first day you can always change the order of the activities for each day.

On the third day I am going to recommend you to visit Coyoacán and San Angel to the south of the city. This part is very famous because the renowned artist Frida Kahlo and her husband Diego Riviera grew up here. I highly recommend you watch the Sandra Hayek movie.

On the fourth day I am going to recommend you to walk around the Condesa, the Roma and the City Center. There are so many things to see. I will try to guide you to see the best ones.

On the fifth day I am going to recommend you to go to Xochimilco and the chinampas.
