While I've only had the opportunity to visit Mexico once in January of 2018 and it was a pretty fast-paced trip, I absolutely LOVED it! I have so many friends who have been going to Mexico lately and I share the same travel tips with each of them, so I figured they would be great to share with all of you as well.
Below is the Zócalo, the main central square in Mexico City. It's an incredible center for culture and history for the past 700 or so years, and was previously the main ceremonial center for the Aztec city Tenochtitlan. Behind the flag you can see the Mexico City Metropolitan Cathedral, a stunning structure that is also Latin America’s biggest and oldest cathedral.
The interior is filled with priceless works of art and religious devotion.
Directly outside the Cathedral you can find a variety of vendors and market stalls. One Mexico City fixture that I haven't seen elsewhere are organ grinder buskers, which I absolutely loved and felt compelled to give to (they are present elsewhere CDMX, not just in the Zócalo).
Something else that I thought was really cool and worth checking out are the glimpses of the original foundations and archelogical digs throughout the square. Archeology is happening even to this day in central areas of Mexico City!
