Nice area to walk around nice and clean with several historical monuments and fountains. Wifi also available which can be handy. Also in park are several beautifully designed older buildings that make the area. Many benches to sit to relax and enjoy the area, very safe with nobody annoying you to buy something or for money.

It is hard to overstate all of the beautiful sights, architecture, restaurants, plazas and cathedrals in this area. If you only have a short period of time, this is where you should be. If you have a longer period of time, start here.

Mexico City is one of the Biggest cities in the World with more than 20Million people of different. So the Downtown Centro Historico has a little of everything. Cultural Sites, Restaurants, Bars, Stores and more. The best day to visit is on Sunday, more quite and peaceful. But if you want to feel the action the go during the week.

I have not seen a historic center as the one that Mexico has. The structures, the detail in the buildings and the history behind them are just breath-taking.
