    Visit the temples of Teotihuacan.
    Take a boatrip (trajineras) in Xochimlco
    Take the bus for one day to Taxco, once there take a nice breakfast with view on the cathedral and explore the small streets buying silver.
    Go and eat some enchiladas in the casa de azulejos in the calle Madero.
    and in the evening go dancing merengue inthe disco Tropicoso or salsa in the bar Mama Rumba in colonia roma.

    You must take a ride to Teotihucan. This will be an all day event.
    You must also visit the Museum of Anthropology in Mexico City. This too will be at least a day. It is rather large and I found myself wondering around at least 5 times during my study in Universidad de Anauhauc.
    After you do the Museum head over to Chapultapec. It is sort of like Central Park in New York City. I found that Central Park was a good green space, however Chapultapec is a wonderful space. It brings so much together and to be able to sit and watch people. We actually got lost but that was okay too. We took a romantic boat ride. It is a successful space.
    I loved being able to visit the pyramids after studying them in school. It was a way to enforce my learning by life experience and I was also able to explain to classmates what the text left out.

    You can not miss a visit to the Teotihuacan ruins, those are located very close to Mexico City and Texcoco. You will see the Piramide of the Sun, and the Piramide of the Moon, both of them are impressionant display of the Aztec ability in architecture. From the top of them you can see a panoramic view of the town of Teotihuacan and the valley. You will also find many souvenirs, with a lot of choices . You can find anything you can ever imagine there. Very nice Mexican items !!

    Don´t miss out on the old Indian site Teotihuacán, outside of Mexico City. (You can go by bus.) It´s a fascinating place with (mainly) symmetric temples and buildings. You have a great view over the area, and the air is a lot better than in Mexico City!

    by melemeday Written Aug 25, 2002

    Teotihuacan is the pyramids that were built about a half hour bus-ride from Mexico City. They are amazing structures to see, and you can climb to the top of them for great views of the landscape. As you walk around, there are vendors that sell inexpensive trinkets that make cool souvenirs.

    Visit the ancient capital of Teotihuacán
    Very well preserved/reconstructed sites along a 2 kms long avenue (means lots of walking).

    The Pyramid of the Sun is the third highest pyramid in the world, after Cholula (Puebla, Mexico) and Keops (Egypt).

    The Pyramids

    by JoanneR46 Written May 9, 2005
    Look at the art work!

    One of the site you don't want to miss even if you can't climb to the top. Just to look at these massive work of arts is worth your time.

    The largest pyramid in the world is here. Very old ruins show the greatness on the people that lived in the country before the spanish came.

    Visit the beautiful Pyramids of the Sun about 40 minutes outside Mexico City.
    Go early in the morning -- before it officially opens -- for the best photos without crowds.

    The best example of Aztec architecture and culture. It's just incredibly awesome that some of the Aztec heritage are this well preserved in Mexico.

    A view form the top of the Pyramid of the Sun. In certain days of the year, you can find people in the summit of the pyramid, wearing white dresses, looking to catch the 'power' of the pyramid.
