Mexico City

 

When you land in México City, the first thing that you see is a metropolis that never ends. This city is plenty of colors, flavors and a vibrant history. Did you know that México City, with a population of more than 22 million people, is the largest Spanish speaking city in the world nowadays?

The best words to describe Mexico City are unique and unexpected. At this surprising city, you will see from Aztec dresses to Mexican hats and typical sweets, informal vendors selling chicken legs in the traffic jam to colorful crafts and souvenirs. But be careful: most of sweets, candies and lollypops are spicy!

Despite the fact that México is mainly known for Cancún or the Rivera Maya, it is also is a frequent connection for business travelers on their way to South America. A good option for accommodation is our NH Aeropuerto T2 México. The hotel is an impressive white and elegant building that offers 287 rooms and is located just 10 minutes away from the Foro Sol or Palacio de los Deportes, and 30 minutes from the beautiful Chapultepec Park and the main History Museum.

The most exciting places to visit are situated in the city center. El Zócalo is one of the biggest squares in the world. In the past, it was also the center of the ancient Tenochtitlan, the capital of the Mexican Empire. The Cathedral was built in the ruins of the main temple. Right next to it, you can see also de National Palace and the City Hall, with a Baroque style, and the National Library. In the middle, there is a big flag with the three colors that characterized the country and the food: Green, White and Red. Closed to El Zócalo, you can find our hotel NH Centro Histórico, with 105 comfortable rooms, gym and a useful service of bikes for rent.

The city also offers another Unesco World Heritage: Xochimilco, one of the best places to enjoy the Mexican culture. The canals of the park are plenty of colorful boats, known as trajineras. Along the canals, there are a lot of restaurants where you can taste the typical Mexican food.
