Hi DF experts!
My partner and I have booked our flights for a 3.5 day trip to Mexico City (end of May) and I would like to get your thoughts on our itinerary. We are a gay couple in our early thirties and love big cities. One of the purposes of the trip is to explore whether it is a city I would like to work in for a year or two. So while I would like to do the touristy things, I would like to get a good sense of the local food and life. Here's my itinerary....
Arrive Saturday Afternoon:
- Explore the Zocolo
- Museo Nacional de Antropología
- Templo Mayor
- Mexico Ballet at night
- Castillo de Chapultapec
Any thoughts on evening entertainment? We would not be interested in Lucha Libre.
Also, is it safe for tourists to take the subway? A friend of mine who is Mexican does not recommend it but I see otherwise on TripAdvisor.
Am I missing anything important?
