Mexico City is a destination full of historical and modern discoveries and adventures. From the archeological complex of Teotihuacán (Pyramid of the Sun and Moon) to the city’s stunning architectural designs (Museo Soumaya by architect Fernando Romero, The Palace of Fine Arts / Palacio Bellas Artes or The Metropolitan Cathedral at the city’s zocalo), Mexico City has something to excite and energize any visitor, domestic or international, child or adult.

On a recent weekend visit, I had the opportunity to experience a colorful slice of Mexico City, including the sites mentioned above along with a visit to nearby Xochimilco, where captains of decorated gondolas (trajineras) chauffeured passengers down peaceful yet lively canals. We dined at trendy restaurant Saks in Plaza San Jacinto, San Angel, toured the Frida Kahlo Museum (or as it’s referenced, “The Blue House/La Casa Azul) and visited the breathtaking La Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe Roman Catholic church, which houses the cloak of Juan Diego holding the image of Our Lady of Guadalupe.

Getting to Mexico City is easy with expansive air lift (six daily non-stop  flights on Aeromexico from Los Angeles Int’l Airport (LAX) and accommodations ranging from standard to boutique to luxury. We had the pleasure of staying at the centrally located Galeria Plaza Reforma, part of Las Brisas Hotel Collection.
