You can start in the capital of the country, where you cannot miss the Zócalo and the Cathedral, the first square of the City being surrounded by the most emblematic buildings of the nation.
In the same way, you cannot leave without visiting the Palace of Fine Arts, the Postal Palace, the Plaza of the Three Cultures, the National Museum of Anthropology, a unique ride on a trajinera in Xochimilco or a visit to the majestic Chapultepec Forest. I recommend finishing your visit by exploring the vast nightlife that it offers, or visiting its great variety of places to try the capital´s gastronomy.
Being the second most populated city in the country, the land of tequila offers different tourist contrasts and exquisite cuisine, with its drowned cakes and meat in its juice.
Without a doubt, visiting the magical town of Tequila, Jalisco will give you an experience when walking among its agave crops and tasting the most Mexican drink: tequila.
In addition, you can visit the largest cultural site in Jalisco, considered the most preserved building in Latin America; the famous Degollado Theater.
