Built on the ancient ruins of the Aztec city of Tenochtitlan, this metropolitan capital is one of those wonderfully cool and atmospheric cities you could spend hours upon end discovering what's behind each street corner. You can discover Mexico City’s storied history, from pre-Hispanic and colonial-era heritage to its contemporary edge, just with a stroll.

Not to mention, back in 2010, UNESCO named traditional Mexican cuisine an ‘Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity’.

The capital of Mexico is a seriously fantastic place to visit, not to mention, live in. There’s no surprise that the number of magical sights, tastes, sounds and destinations that make Mexico City not only one to make the locals proud, but also truly sticks in its travellers psyches the moment they step foot inside.
