Situated in the Valley of Mexico but surrounded by towering mountains and volcanoes, Mexico City is the centrally-located capital of Mexico and the country's most important economic, political and cultural centre.

This is one of the world's great cities, and fully grasping all the details of its complexities would require more time than is available during discount travel to Mexico City.

Mexico City captivates its visitors with a mild climate, vibrant street life and abundant cultural opportunities. Founded by Spanish conquistadors on the remains of the defeated Aztecs' capital of Tenochtitlán, Mexico City provides stark contrasts between the ancient and the modern. The city allows you to knock back a tequila at a grand old colonial-era cantina, then enjoy fine cuisine at an upscale, world-class restaurant. Or you can buy tamales from a street vendor, then dance to music spun by disc jockeys at ultra-chic modern nightclubs. In Mexico City the choice is yours.

Highlights of your discount travel to Mexico City might include the Historic Centre (Centro Histórico) and the "floating gardens" and canals of Xochimilco, both UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Famous landmarks in the Historic Centre include the Plaza de la Constitución (Zócalo), the huge central square with its Spanish-era Metropolitan Cathedral and National Palace, and the ancient Aztec temple ruins of Templo Mayor ("Major Temple") all within close walking distance. During the day and evening the square is alive with people, and visitors on Mexico City travel packages frequently witness impromptu street performances and local artisans plying their wares.
The Angel of Independence monument is the icon of Mexico City and stands majestically in Paseo de la Reforma, modeled after the Champs-Élysées in Paris. The Plaza de las Tres Culturas fuses three different cultures, featuring Aztec, Spanish and contemporary Mexican architecture all in one place. A world-class cultural centre, Mexico City claims to be the home of more museums than any other city in the world and is also the fourth city in the world in terms of numbers of theatres, following only New York City, London and Toronto.
Alameda Central provides a bit of nature and is Mexico City's oldest park, but it is also the home of the Palace of Fine Arts, an exotic-looking building that includes a concert hall, museum and theatre. A mural painted by Diego Rivera, one of Mexico's most famous artists, is located nearby.
