We are beginning the planning stage of a trip to Mexico City in October. We have travelled several times to Mexico in recent years (colonial cities and not beach resorts) but this is our first time to Mexico City.
We know we cannot see anywhere near all that we would like to see in a week's time but below we have listed some places we definitely want to visit. We are wondering if there are good or bad days for going to these locations. On Mondays, of course, many places like museums will be closed and a Monday is our first full day so we were thinking about the Turibus. I read some old posts on Trip Advisor and many folks spoke highly of it. Do you agree? For a first day look around it might be good. Or not?
Otherwise, our list includes at least one full day around the Zocalo, the Alameda area, at least some of the museums in Chapultepec Park (obviously the Anthro Museum and Castle), much of a day at Teotihuacan, the University, Coyoacan, maybe the Saturday market in the San Angel area, and Xochimilco. If time allows a peek at colonia Polanco and Plaza Garibaldi and try to find some time for shopping but where for artesania. I know there is even more but this list will keep us busy and I don't know if we can squeeze them all in. Is it possible to have good looks at all those in a week?
Again, are there good days or days when it would not be so good to check out these places? What might you skip if necessary? Any places that are really highly recommended that we should consider?
We will appreciate any and all advice.
