This site is one of the most amazing that we have ever seen - do not miss it! If you have 1 day in Mexico City, go see this. By doing it yourself, you will save hours in the gift shops and bathroom breaks. Bring...More

IMPORTANT POINTERS: - Personally, I would not take any tours to this place. They just take your money. - Take the metro 5 pesos to use (0.28 USD) to 'Autobuses del Norte" on the yellow line. - Leave the station and the bus station is...More
