What to do in Mexico City
Any visitor to Mexico City should expect to be entertained, as 24/7 activity is the bond that keeps this sometimes ragged-on locale on the tourist radar. The fact of the matter is that Mexico City isn’t nearly as dangerous as it’s made out to be. Sure, there are areas a map-packing gringo should steer clear of, but a wide-eyed visitor will find a plethora of features that give a glimpse into this city’s immense history and culture. The Zocalo, the largest square in Latin America, is surrounded by City Hall and the Cathedral, also the largest in the Americas. The Basílica de Guadalupe is a place of pilgrimage for Catholics, and the Coyoacán is a fascinating historic arts center. Each is more easily managed, and perhaps enjoyed, with Mexico’s signature cuisine: a shot of tequila and a hot tamale.
