Everyone keeps asking me: "How’s Mexico City?"
I reply (with unbridled enthusiasm) that "Mexico City is so much fun!!!"
This city is all about genuine revelry, delicious flavors, bright colors and good old-fashioned friendliness.
Mexico City is also a city of rich history and culture, a vivacious urban landscape of unique architectural heritage. It’s modern and traditional; charming and sophisticated; quaint and gigantic -- rendering an incredibly eclectic style in every sense of the phrase.
We love it so much that we’re adding a Spring Mexico City Experience and also an Autumn Mexico City Experience (celebrating the magical Dia de Los Muertos celebration). Every season brings something anew!
Setting foot in this enchanting city feels surprising and shocking to the senses. And somehow, something about it feels familiar and endearing—whether you’re visiting for the first or tenth time.
Mexico is the ultimate mashup of Europe and Native America. And Mexico City, as both the capital of the Aztec Empire and later the capital of New Spain, is the origin point of the New World.
It’s one of the oldest urban capitals in the Western Hemisphere. Founded in 1325, and home to the Aztec Empire, it was later conquered by Spain and became the capital of the Spanish Empire in the Americas.
Mexico City's historic center is emblematic of the Spanish colonial period -- sometimes it feels like you’re in Spain. And then you’re reminded that once upon a time, before the Spaniards, this was the native land of Nahuatl speaking Mexica people. The Aztec ruins that still remain in the heart of the captivating historic center make this fact ever so palpable.
The historic center is the heart of Mexico City and its vibrancy is magically unique. It’s by far my favorite part of the city, vivacious and spirited as if it has a life of its own. You can’t help but feel the magic of the place as you meander among the thousands of people on the streets. And yet, it never feels overwhelming. You feel joyful and alive (similar to how New York City makes you feel).
There seem to be celebrations, festivals and lively markets all over the place. We keep running serendipitously into wonderful festivities of some kind or another. And music is always part of the cheerful revelry.
It’s hard to wrap your head around all you see and experience when you’re in this awe-inspiring city.
The seemingly endless urban sprawl has some beautiful European looking neighborhoods with streets laced with green lush and majestic tropical trees.
When you’re in Mexico City, you can’t help but fall in love with it because you feel loved by it, too. Being here while enjoying the company of wonderful friends is where the real magic happens. It’s an overwhelming sense of joy, exhilaration and exultation all at the same time with a bit of wonderment.
