Mexico’s capital is the largest city in North America, has more museums than any city in the world, and is home to some of the best street food on the planet.
The space-age Museo Soumaya is just one of the city’s many hubs of culture. You’ll find Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera’s former house in the charming Coyoacan district. That’s to say nothing of the famous murals that are found throughout the city — from street art to the National Palace and Antiguo Colegio de San Ildefonso.
Food is stellar everywhere in Mexico City — from holes-in-the-wall like Las Buenas Migas to internationally famous spots like Pujol. You’ll also find stands slinging tortas, tacos, tlayudas, tlacoyos and nearly every type of regional cuisine on seemingly every other block across the city.
You’ll also find history here in spades. The Centro Historico is one of the largest preserved colonial zones in the Americas, with beautiful architecture and the ruins of Templo Mayor.
