    Mexico City

    Subway is excellent: very fast, easy to navigate and amazingly cheap.Even if you're not into museums and/or art you should check out the Museo de Antropologia and the Casa Azul ( Frida Kahlo museum).Before going to any big stores for anything, especially clothes, check out the many huge street markets .You can save a bundle.

    Mexico City

    So much to experience - areas broadly divided into (1) City Center (2) Polanco (3) Surrounding Spanish villages. Figure out your priorities in that order based on how much time you have!

    Insider Tip:Public transport and tours leaving from the city to nearby cities are great. Spanish language skills will definitely come in handy in this city; most people only speak Spanish and no other language. There is something for everyone - dancing, museums, natural beauty, castles, food, shopping. You name it, you've got it here!
