Thanks guys! Nice countdown. I actually teared up in the section about Chapultapec Park. My daughter is going to FREAK ♡ we leave on March 1st and plan on staying in Mexico City for a month or so. Besides your list, also want to go to Frida’s House and a place called “Beauty Alley” where we can get inexpensive chair massages and pedicures and blue or purple hair, etc., lol!

Cinemacynic says:

I always look for videos that are best things to do in _____ but I am always looking for non-obviously tourist traps. I want the real Mexico not the tourist attraction stuff. I want like street vendors, cock fights, boxing matches, and all that stuff. Not boat rides and butterflies and pyramids. No offense but these aren’t really “The best things” of Mexico.
