My sister-in-law and myself traveled to Mexico City from Tucson, Arizona via bus. Wanted to see the terrain - was not disappointed. Purchased tickets to see the Ballet Folklorico while in Mexico City and it was wonderful! Do not miss it, I highly recommend it!

This beautiful park was once the playground for the
wealthiest families in the colonial era, and is now
the perfect place where locals and visitors can spend
a sunny weekend afternoon to relax or shop for
souvenirs at the market. Kids can run around or grab a
bite of cotton candy while teens and adults wander
around admiring the charming gardens and the
sculptures that adorn it. Once the heat rises, it may
