Mexico City, Mexico City & Surrounds, Mexico
Everybody says Mexico City is an extremly dangerous city, but from my experience I can tell you, that as long as you don't run around in expensive clothes and shoes without any jewelry, noboy will do you any harm. Actually it's the opposite: Mexicans are warm hearted people how are very proud of their country, and especially of Mexico City, and like to share their knowledge of it with everybody!

Very important to see, besides the usual things you can read in every guide, are the different markets in different parts of the town (especially the "TEPITO" market. Also very interesting are the little Taco Bars in the streets. Don't think about what to eat. Just eat and then ask!

Save time for museum hopping. There are more museums in Mexico City that you could possibly count. We found gallery after gallery just walking down the street. Admission was as little as a dollar.

Best place to listen to the Mariachi bands is in the plaza Garibaldi, make sure you go there with local, as it is also a high crime area. Another local place is floating garden of Xochimilco, a must see, again go with locals.

If you are heading to the Palenque ruins, it's definately worth spending at least two nights in El Panchan... a jungle community with incredible atmosphere just outside the main town.  We stayed 2 nights in the main town and 2 in El Panchan.. the town was dissapointing at best, but Panchan was awesome!

If you are a woman traveling to Mexico be prepared to endure attention from men. Remember that you will be functioning in a "machismo" culture. Have a few choice phrases prepared in Spanish to use on the street. Always let folks know where you are traveling within the country side.

For me this is one of the worst problems of Mexico City. But hey, there's always a solution. Avoid cabs and buses and use the subways instead. You will save a looot of time.

It is the centre of Mexico. The top in art, culture, economy, and everything you can imagine lives here. Unfortunately, pollution and public safety problems undermine it's awesome touristic potential.

City metro is cheap and easy to get around, buy a few tickets at a time as it's the same price to go 1 stop or 10. Saves lining up as can get very busy.
