Why Mexico City?

Tacos
Yes it is true! Tacos are not just a staple diet but a pivotal daily activity. Stick to the basics with bistec, pork and fish, or be adventurous and go for the beef tongue. Wash them down with Mezcal, which you will soon realize is also a staple for the chilangos (locals).
Exploration
While the city itself offers a plethora of activities, there is much to explore outside. If you wanted to visit the Teotihuacan pyramids, you have two ways of doing so - riding in a hot air balloon or climbing them. For hikers, the Iztaccihuatl volcano is a great day long hike. If you are searching for something more lively, experience riding the gondola-like boats (trajineras) full of color, mariachi music, quesadillas and micheladas - a very Mexican flair!
Culture with a dash of quirkiness
The vibrant Mexican culture is palpable in the city with friendly people, bustling markets, and charming cafes. Along with this, there is a certain quirkiness to the city. You will find it homey amongst the chaos. You may see a pet pig, or find yourself screaming your lungs off to support a masked “wrestler” at Lucha Libre, or eating stringy cheese from orange tents by the wayside.
Art & History
Mexico City has it all. It is a hub for a bustling new art scene, but the city doesn’t let you forget the old with Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera’s presence felt all through it. There are plenty of museums where you can get lost spending a day in the Aztec or Mayan times or surrounding yourself with history told through murals. There is something for everyone.
Neighborhoods
The city comes alive in different ways in each neighborhood in Mexico City. The “it” neighborhoods of Roma and Condesa, where we will be staying, are filled with art galleries, cafes, restaurants and bars to sit around and discuss anything from the revolution to the digital expat life. Visit Zocalo, arguably the heart of Mexico City, to take in the vast square filled with museums and national monuments. Or walk around Frida’s neighborhood, Coyoacan, a historic centre that still retains it’s village vibe.
