After breakfast you can go in deeper into the second largest park in all of Latin America. Its 1,700 acres is a mix of trails, greenery, history and art that makes it very special and an oasis to escape the sounds of cars and pollution. The possibilities to explore the park are extensive, but the most important and visited place is the Chapultepec Castle. There is a small fee to enter and it is worth it. You can visit the gardens, the rooms inside the castle and really relish in the panoramic view of Mexico City. There is also a zoo inside the park that has no entrance fee. You can go walking from the castle to the zoo, there are a lot of different animals and exhibits. Sometimes it is crowded since it is free to enter. If you get hungry, there a number of food stands with typical delicious Mexican tacos that are very cheap - my favorite is tostada de pastor con pinã, a hard shell taco with pork meat and pineapple. You can also rent a bike in order to explore the park a bit more without getting too tired. Everything is spread out around the huge park and if you want to see most of the nine museums it’s a good idea to rent one out for a couple of hours. The biggest and most famous museum is the National Museum of Anthropology, it is one of the most visited attractions in the Federal District and there is an entrance fee. It will take out a good chunk of your day and it is optional, but recommended, to pay for a tour guide due to its size and amount of history exhibits. There are other small museums around the park if your prefer to see a variety of art styles, for example: The Museum of Modern Art, that is free on Sundays and the National History Museum, that is actually located inside the Castle making it a good option if you already have the Castle on your list. Around the park you can also buy small gifts for friends and family back home for cheaper than at actual the stores, so make to take cash and not only a credit card. Photo credit: Caroline Oliveira
