The Only Guide You'll Need to Travel With a Group to Mexico City

Historic sites, vibrant nightlife and Michelin-starred cuisine are just a few of the things that put Mexico City in a group getaway field all its own. In this cultural masterpiece, it’s easy to get lost from wandering down the historic corridors or palm-lined roads of the charming neighborhoods that make up the city with your best friends in tow. In case you’d like a little more direction than a simple ‘left’ or ‘right,’ we’ve created this extensive guide so that the city-seekers, shoppers, sightseers and every traveler in between can plan a visit unique to the experience they yearn for.
