The largest city in North America is a huge expanse of modern-art museums, bars and Aztec temples, and it can be hard to know what to do next in a city that has everything. As with many cities, such as New York
, Mexico is divided into many boroughs and districts meaning that it is very decentralised – each with their smaller, exciting downtown areas.
The nightlife is ecstatic and huge just like the city, with a vast amount of venues, restaurants, bars and cafes with many stimulating variations – including old dance halls and pubs. The culture in Mexico City is like no other with a mix of indigenous and Spanish traditions with the old and new which creates a unique style. Hot chili peppers and fluffy tortillas that were eaten by the ancient Aztecs are eaten here as a common and delicious diet!
Just one of the sixteen delagaciones of Mexico City, Coyoacan was once entirely independent of the city and was incorporated when the Federal District was expanded. The district is brimming with life; the original plazas, layout and winding narrow streets are all conserved making Coyoacan and its historical central area one of the most popular places to visit on weekends. We would put this district as one of the best places to rent you holiday rental apartment; it is full of amazing sites to visit including of the three oldest churches in Mexico City and Jardin del Centenario a plaza with new craft bazaars nearby and vendors street selling around it. Coyoacan is relatively quiet and peaceful on week days whilst the weekends are festive and crowded on the weekends.
The Historical Centre
Also known as ´Centro´ and contains the central Zocalo plaza, which is the main plaza in Mexico City, and the largest in Latin America and it is of course a UNESCO heritage site. The historical centre was the original foundation of the City and it was built on the ruins of Tenochtitlan, the empire capital of the Aztecs which was established in 1325. Booking your holiday apartment in Centro would be a perfect base to explore the vibrant city, from its heart.
