Sixt Tips

Mexico City is a huge urban center and the largest city in North America. It is built on a dried lake bed and is surrounded on three sides by towering mountains. The Plaza de la Constitucion,also known locally as the Zocalo, is at the center of the Centro Historico. It is one of the largest city squares in the world and is the focal point for some of the city's most important buildings. One of these is La Catedral, which is the largest cathedral anywhere in the Americas and has an amazing solid gold alter. The Basílica de Guadalupe, meanwhile, is regarded as the most holy catholic site in the Americas and attracts pilgrims from all over the world. Coyoacan is the city's arts district and was home to Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera. Plaza Garibaldi-Mariachi is the place for pavement cafes and street entertainers and has pop up cocktail stands in the evening. For the best views of the city, visit the observation decks of the Torre Latinoamericana or the newer and even taller Torre Mayor.
