Just as a cultural experience, nothing spectacular, but it's something to walk through the park and end up at the castle .

Chapultepec is a wonderful park located right in the middle of Mexico City. It is a place to people watch as families head here on weekends to play and picnic and get away from the confusion of the big city. You can visit the Zoo, fantastic museums, the famous castle all for free. When staying in the city, be sure... More

I've been to Mexico City the last 2 Xmases and visited the Zoo, Castle, boating lake and Park. Zoo is a much better attraction than London Zoo and is free. Yes thats correct free and is 10 times better than london Zoo which has far less animals and costs around £25 to enter. The castle is impressive and the park... More

If just for the museums Chalpultepec would be worth it (Antropología, Castle (Natural History), the Zoo, Rufino Tamayo (Modern Art) and more). The park itself is expansive and especially lively. A must visit if you are in Mexico City!

I've been told to avoid Chapultepec Park on the weekend but I disagree, ss seeing the residents of the D.F. enjoying their fine park is its # 1 attraction to me. If there on a Sunday, the museums will be crowded as they are free to Mexican citizens on Sundays. If you go on a Monday, take a book!

Magic Mexico is located at Chapultepec park, near the Papalote (kite) Museum with with a collection of over 90 faithful replicas of pre-Hispanic, colonial and modern Mexico. Most of the symbols of architecture are here on exhibit, including Mayan pyramids, Aztec temples, the Cathedral, the house of tiles, the castle of Chapultepec, which was emperor Maximilian´s residence, the palace of...

Think Central or Golden Gate Park. Yeah, it's that big. Tons of activities to do, even the zoo is free! The zoo is alright, if you have small children they will love it. it's average care of the animals in my opinion, definitely not the saddest cages I have seen! Go see the voladores (flying men) close to the Anthropology... More

worth a day with its monuments, lakes, museums, restaurant, and hiking trails - Chapultepec Castle is a must see as is the Museum of Natural History - but maybe the best thing on weekends is seeing the residents enjoying their park

Yeah, for the "go out and do something" people this is a must. Greta to walk (or rent a bike and cycle) around. Castle is REALLY good, not visited the museum near the castle but hear it's great. The lake is really nice too - go rent a pedalo. Everything busy at weekends including this park, but better here than... More
