Once known as the City of Palaces, Mexico City has two areas that were declared World Heritage Sites by the UNESCO. The first, the Centro Historico (Historic Center), has beautiful historic and religious buildings, such as the Catedral Metropolitano (Metropolitan Cathedral), one of the most important architectural structures in the Western Hemisphere. The Palacio Nacional (National Palace) has spectacular Diego Rivera murals that chronicle Mexico's history. And Palacio de Bellas Artes (Palace of Fine Arts), which hosts the city's most important cultural events, is a beautiful construction that blends art nouveau and art deco styles. The other World Heritage Site, Xochimilco Ecological Park, is often called the Venice of Mexico due to its beautiful canals. Flower-painted boats offer tours of the canals and floating gardens.
What's more, Mexico City is a cosmopolitan metropolis, where new and old traditions coexist side by side. Here you can go shopping at bazaars and crafts markets in the Coyoacan and San Angel neighborhoods. Or you can go to exclusive boutiques and shopping centers in the posh communities of Santa Fe and Polanco, where you'll be surrounded by the comfort of top-notch hotels and restaurants.
Located 151 km (93 mi) south of Mexico City, off Highway 95, Taxco is considered one of Mexico’s most picturesque towns, this charming destination offers cobblestone streets, colonial buildings and white houses with red tile roofs. Another notable attraction of unparalleled beauty is the Catedral de Santa Prisca (Santa Prisca Cathedral), one of the most representative examples of baroque architecture in Mexico. During your stay, you also can visit the Humboldt and Borda houses, which have great historical and cultural value, or you can check out the Viceregal Art Museum and the Silver Museum; in the latter you’ll see incredible silver objects, such as earrings, necklaces bracelets and other items. Silverwork has long been a vital part of Taxco’s economy, thanks largely to American silversmith William Spratling, who had a strong influence on Mexican silver design.
In the surrounding areas you can visit wonderful natural settings like the Grutas de Cacahuamilpa (Cacahuamilpa Caverns), which are ideal for cave diving. Another interesting natural attraction is the Alejandro Humboldt National Park, where you’ll find abundant pine and oak forests offering gorgeous landscapes for hiking. When you return to the city, head to one of Taxco’s traditional restaurants, where you can order Guerrero-style pozole (hominy soup). After the meal, you can take a stroll along the beautifully illuminated streets, and if you like, you can duck into one of the bars, coffee shops, or nightclubs, most of which you’ll find on the city’s southern end. At some of these places you can enjoy the party until the break of dawn.
