Mexico City: what to do and what to visit in and around Mexico City
The center of Mexico, around Mexico City, is a place where culture, nature, traditions, colonial towns and archaeological sites mix.
The landscapes can sometimes be monotonous, even if they are often crossed by volcanos. There are about 2000 volcanos in Mexico. Some are active and others are extinct. The one that first comes to mind is the Popocatépetl, which today is still a threat to the city of Mexico.
Mexico City is the trading and administrative center of Mexico. The oldest capital of the new world has kept a rich indigenous and colonial history. Two to three days are needed to visit the city.
Colonial towns such as Querétaro, San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, Morelia, Patzcuaro, Guadalajara, Zacatecas, Puebla, Cuernavaca and Taxco appear as witnesses of the mix of indigenous and Spanish cultures.
