Mexico, Mexico City Guide (B): Mexico City Travel Guide - Top 15 Places to Photograph

Mexico City Travel Guide - Top 15 Places to Photograph
Mexico City is the cosmopolitan capital of Mexico that is home to 22 million people, a vibrant culinary scene, rich Aztec and colonial heritage, archaeological sights, and many surprises. The city is known as D.F "Distrito Federal", or the Federal District because it is considered a separate federal entity to the rest of the 31 states in Mexico. It is the political, financial and cultural hub in the country. On my trip, I discovered so many unique UNESCO World Heritage Sites, museums, and architectural gems that my list of sights to photograph ended up being quite long. Luckily, many of the sights are clustered near each other and I will post another blog post on how to efficiently sight see in Mexico City. Check out our tips below and our Travel Gallery with the photos of this trip.

Here are the top sights to photograph in Mexico City: 

1. Chapultepec Park

Chupultepec Park is more like a forest and 2-3 times the size of Central Park. It is filled with merchants selling everything from elote, to popcorn, to dorilocos (yes, it is a real Mexican creation). The park also has numerous museums and a castle...which leads us to the second photo shoot location. 

2. Chapultepec Castle

The only "real" castle that housed a reigning monarchy (Mexican Emperor Maximilian I) in North America. It sits high on a hill with a view of the city and park. 

3. Museo Nacional de Antropología

There is no wonder this museum got a five star average rating from about 10K ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
