Things to do A kaleidoscope of eras and mementos, of new experiences and splendors from past centuries, that is Mexico City. Here you can jump from on era to the next by just walking across the street. From the mysterious remains of the pre-Hispanic towns found right in the city’s heart, such as the Templo Mayor, you can go to the colonial era with its endless temples and beautiful houses built of red volcanic rock, and patios with arches and water fountains. At sunset, the best option is to get pampered at a restaurant or bar on the Condesa district, a neighborhood with a captivating Art Noveau style; or at Coyoacan, a peaceful colonial neighborhood nestled along gardens and avenues that help you forget about the hectic life of such as a large city. You will need more than one vacation to fully enjoy the many activities available in the worlds largest city. México City is the cultural center of México and is home to a seemingly endless array of cultural activities. An entire vacation could be devoted strictly to the more than one hundred museums, and you would probably still not have time to visit them all. The floating gardens of Xochimilco are an attraction that has been in operation since Aztec times. The Zócalo (main square) and historic center are not to be missed and are a good starting place for deciding your itinerary, as there are plenty of things to do and see in a relatively small area. Chapultepec Park, (the world's largest park within a city) is home to many attractions and should be on your must do list, especially if you have any youngsters with you. There is always some sort of free entertainment going on, such as concerts, magic shows and mime troupes. If you can imagine it; it is probably happening somewhere in México City. The nightlife in the capital is second to none and provides an enormous variety of entertainment. Ballet, opera, folkloric shows and theatre compete with rock concerts, bars and nightclubs featuring all kinds of live music. Live Cuban music and the tropical salsa clubs always seem to be a big draw, for locals as well as visitors. A good place to find out what is currently going on in town is the Friday or Saturday edition of local newspapers. Most have listings for Art Functions, Cultural Activities, Dance Performances and Children's Activities. We have done our best to list many of the attractions available in this incredible city. If we have missed anything important, please let us know and we will add it if possible.
Entertainment, Nightlife & Recreation Whether you are looking for a one-of-a-kind cultural experience or simply a night out on the town, Mexico City has virtually unlimited options to keep you entertained during your stay. The Art Throughout the year, the city is home to numerous art exhibitions and film festivals, continuing the country's rich tradition of artistic expression. Some of those exhibitions can be found in the more than 100 art galleries that call Mexico City home. For those more inclined toward the performing arts, the city's 30 theaters and concert venues provide a wealth of entertainment. Here visitors can expect plays, musicals, and dance, as well as every genre of music imaginable. A world-class orchestra, the Orquesta Filarmónica de la Ciudad de México, has its own performing space in the Sala Silvestre Revueltas. Mexico City also welcomes a range of international superstars each year to its modern music venues, and traditional mariachi performances can be found across the city. Nighlife Mexico City's nightlife is as lively and varied as everything else the city has to offer. All tastes are catered for, from gentle supper clubs with floorshows and loud, brash nightclubs to ritzy piano bars, rustic antros (or disco-bars) and bars specialising in traditional Mexican music. La Zona Rosa remains a popular nightspot district but has lost ground to Polanco and Condesa in recent years. San Angel is another hot hangout.
