Go to Mexico City, don't let it scare you away.
Mexico City shouldn't be missed. It has so much to offer. From a relaxing boat ride in Xochimilco (see pic) to a stroll in Chapultepec. It has so many nice museums that you can spend a week in here without seeing them all. I would definitly suggest a visit to Museo Nacional de Antropologia. Speaking of museums, check out the local newspapers for the free days. This may change once in a while, but when I went there I got free access to several museum on Sunday.
Near the Reforma Avenue...
Near the Reforma Avenue entrance to the Chapultepec Park, you will see the Monument of the Boy Heroes. It commemorates the heroic defence of the Castle were six cadets of the Military Academy in 1847 leapt to their deaths rather than surrender.
I heard Mariachi bands playing at a couple different restaurants (El Arroyo and Cielo Rojo) during my stay in Mexico City, but the most famous place to hear the music is at the restaurants near Plaza Garibaldi. This area, however, is a little seedy at night, so I avoided it.
The music is great usually consisting of some violins, two trumpets, a guitar, a vihuela (a guitar with a rounded back) and a Mexican harp. The songs are usually upbeat and lots of fun.
The Tlayudas vendors
Tlayuda is a Big tostada or crispy blue tortilla covered with salsa, fresh cheese,refried beans and nopales,,This ladies sitting everywhere thru the Zocalo are prosecute by law together with all of the illegal vendors in this city area,,, They carry big baskets with all ingredients and people gathers around them to taste some of this famous mexico city appetizers,,,That was funny to see this kid yelling to all ladies that police was comming , and how fast they were running for not be catched,,I was about to order my food when I saw all vendors picking up their stuff and get lost around the corners..However,5 min later they cameback they sat down as notthing wouldn´t happened,, and I was able to enjoy my food same as 15 people that were running behind them to buy a tlayuda... that was Hilarious...
