CDMX / Mexico City

Even from the top of the Torre Latinoamericana building, it’s impossible to see the end of this sprawling city. It might take a lifetime of living here to explore everything. To say that the city is big is an understatement. Mexico City gets right into your face when you first arrive. It has a certain vibe that you begin to sense immediately. You can feel it as you walk the streets. There are a lot of people everywhere you look. It’s big, bold and loud. It is unforgetable.

We only visited Mexico City for a weekend so it would have been impossible to see everything. As you explore the city streets, you begin to grasp how big the city really is. It is the largest city in the Americas, and it lives up to this lofty “big city” status. It is a unique place, unlike any other city in the world.

We only had two and a half days to explore, and we split our time between the historic center of town and the ruins of Teotihuacán. So our experiences in Mexico City is very limited, but we packed a lot into this short visit. We absolutely love the energy of the city. It is both very Mexican and yet stands alone on its own unique place. There is artwork everywhere, the city’s culture spills onto the streets. There are so many museums and art galleries to visit. Historic buildings and Aztec Ruins are everywhere. There is no shortage of history in the city.

We only got an introduction to this amazing place, but it has only stoked the fires of a return trip. There is so much more that we still need to experience. We promised ourselves that we would come back to explore again, and we promise to give ourselves a full week to explore.  There is a good chance we will go back sometime in 2018, and we will be excited to share these new adventures with you when we do! Until then, enjoy these pictures of our first trip together.
