mexico-city-2719368_960_720.jpgThese are not in any particular order, but there are some places that I visited that were great.

  1. The Frida Kahlo Museum. This is definitely worth it, I had to wait a very long time to get in (because I didn’t buy my ticket online) but it was completely worth it. I was actually expecting it to be smaller.
  2. Coyoacán in general. This was my favorite area that I visited. The streets were beautiful and it was more Mexican than the downtown area that I stayed in (in my opinion). There were many beautiful houses and museums that were closed off from the street but when you get inside there are beautiful courtyards.
  3. Templo Mayor Museum. This was great! I did not get to go to Teotihuacan but this satisfied my quest for seeing ancient ruins. The museum was actually my favorite part. There were several floors that were covered in ancient Aztec artifacts, with objects about food to war to medicine and everything in between. I highly recommend it.
  4. Coyoacán Market. If you are looking for everything Mexican under one roof, head here. There was pretty much everything here clothes, food, spices, toys, you name it. Definitely worth a visit.
  5. Historic Churches. I visited a few historic churches during my trip and they are architectural masterpieces. Highly detailed and extravagant. It actually reminded me of some of the churches I visited in Italy. Stop in any one it will probably be like that.
  6. National Art Museum MUNAL. This was a place that I hadn’t originally planned to visit, but I’m glad I went anyway. Beautiful architecture and the art was interesting too. All of the art that was on display at the time I went was in the Classical style, so if you love that great! If you don’t you can still appreciate it. Some of the work is thought-provoking, for me.

Some places I wanted to get to but couldn’t:

  • Museo Soumaya
  • Antiguo Colegio de San Ildefonso
  • Bazaar Sabado
  • Museo Casa Estudio Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo (Yes, this is different from the Frida Kahlo Museum)
  • Teotihuacan

Till Next Time
