Mexico City holidays

MAKE TRACKS FOR MEXICO CITY

Get ready for dancing and dining, castles and culture, plazas and pyramids. Holidays to Mexico City are fuelled by a magical energy, unique to the world’s fifth most populated city. You’ll feel welcome, inspired, and never more alive than when you spend a day or night among the endless vitality of Mexico City.

Mexico’s vast capital city never stops moving. There’s a diverse range of attractions and experiences to suit any traveller, at any pace. Incredible public squares like Plaza de las Tres Culturas invite you to dive into city life – or you can sit at the edges and watch the world dance by. Torre Latinoamericana and the magnificent Zócalo are flanked with shops, galleries, museums, bars and restaurants. And huge green spaces such as Parque México and the extraordinary sculpture park at Ciudad Universitaria provide tranquil places to pause, away from the bustling streets.

The city’s diverse neighbourhoods offer a world of contrasts. Magnificent architecture, old and new, can be found at every corner. History comes alive at the Museo de Antropología and the ancient Pirámides de Teotihuacán. Look out for inspiring buildings like the futuristic Museo Soumaya, the Frida Kahlo Museum, and the impressive Basílica de Guadalupe, which is the third most-visited religious site in the world. And you might recognise the Castillo de Chapultepec – it featured as the Capulet mansion in Baz Luhrmann’s hit movie Romeo + Juliet.

With direct flights from London – as well as connections from most major cities in Europe and the USA – it’s easy to enjoy a holiday to Mexico City as a stand-alone trip, or part of a wider itinerary. Regular domestic flights also mean you can easily combine your city stay with some beach time on Mexico’s Caribbean or Pacific Coast. Whatever you’re planning, speak to our Travel Specliaists to tailor-make your ideal getaway.

Mexico City’s neighbourhoods

Get right to the modern heart of Mexico City when you take time to visit some of its most intriguing neighbourhoods. You can walk the halls of the Blue House at the Frida Kahlo Museum in Coyoacán, and explore the former home of Mexico’s most famous artist.

Grab a coffee and sit a while in Plaza Hidalgo, as you absorb the creative atmosphere of this charming artistic neighbourhood. Ride the colourful trajinera boats along the canals in the ecological reserve of Xochimilco. Browse the cafés, bars, galleries and boutiques of the hipster Roma district.

Want to escape the hustle and bustle? Stroll around the Condesa neighbourhood and the iconic Parque México, beside Chapultepec Castle and Bosque de Chapultepec. Or savour natural wines, artisan chocolates and innovative treats around the leafy Plaza Washington of Juárez.

Best time to visit Mexico City

With a little preparation and considered packing, Mexico City can be a great place to visit any time of year. For the best balance of warm temperatures and dry days, March to June is a great time to go – although the temperature rarely falls below 10°C from April to November.

Whenever you go, you’ll need to pack a few layers for the changeable weather. June to September is the wettest time of year, with rainfall usually peaking in August. But there are plenty of indoor attractions – as well as bars and restaurants – where you can shelter when the clouds burst.

Days and nights can feel chilly from November to February, so you’ll need to pack some warm layers. But if you’re planning to add on a beach break afterwards, this is a lovely time of year to soak up the Mexican sunshine. Plus, you can experience the world-famous Día de los Muertos celebrations in early November.
