Whether due to its buzzing, historic heart or the relics of ancient civilisations found on its outskirts, Mexico City is fast becoming Central America’s must see city. There is no doubting it is vast – it’s one of the world’s largest cities – but you will be spoilt in the Centro Historico where the majority of attractions are. This is a great place to walk around and with beautiful colonial architecture, fascinating museums and ruins telling the tale of the nation’s Aztec past you can spend days here exploring.
