    7 days in DF

    I am happy we decided to spend 7 full days there in our backpacking trip around Mexico. Definitely lots of thing to see and do. Go to Coyacan (frida, crazy squirrels, great bars), Teotihuacan piramids, Xochimilco, the food markets...

    Insider Tip:sometimes the metro if really packed but it is easy to get around. get a ravel card - it can be topped up as you go, easier than getting a single ticket every time.

    Lots ot things to do. Felt much safer than i had been led to believe prior to the trip. All the people are so lovely and warm! Probably best to exercise some caution after dark though - travel in packs. Some locals were saying that they darent travel alone after dark and that things can get a bit hairy sometimes. But if youre sensible you should be fine.

    Insider Tip:Take the subway! its so quick and cheap and easy!

    Very interesting place to visit

    Although it's a huge city, it has so many interesting characters to it. There are modern and fancy part of town, laid back and artsy part of town, busy and famous party of town. you can easily spend a whole week to explore the city and the surrounding area. Teotihuacan, Frida Kahlo museum and Zocalo were the highlight of my visit. Zona Losa and La Condesa were areas with great night life.

    One of a kind!

    Mexico City is an incredible city with so many things to see, it would take a long time to see everything however thats what makes it great. You will never be bored in this city and although it is highly populated you will be able to see a lot of neighborhoods which wont make you feel like youre in such a huge metropolis.

    It´s na amazing place. Be sure to leave at least 5 days for this city...don´t miss: Frida Kalo´s house, Cathedral, Guadalupe´s church, Teotihuacan( go by your on), Museo de Antropologia (AMAZING!!!), and so much more...

    Insider Tip:Go around withou being afraid, all and all it´s a safe city and you can get a lot of culture if you pay attention to everyday life. I would definitely go back.
