Mexico City is the capital of Mexico, the largest of Mexico's cities, and the second largest metropolis in the world, home to more than 8.5 million residents. The sprawling city combines history, art, and Mexican culture with the country's finest restaurants, nightclubs, and shopping. Unlike the slow resort pace of Cancun and Mexico's Pacific coastal resorts, Mexico City is alive and fast-paced.
There's plenty to see and do in Mexico City. The city has more than 160 museums and more than 100 theaters, making it the fourth largest theater-going city in the world. Other popular sights include the floating gardens of Xochimilco, historic Chapultepec Park overlooking the city, the house and studios of Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo, and the huge "zocalo" (town square) and its ornate cathedral.
Top hotels in Mexico City include the Sheraton Maria Isabel, the JW Marriott, the Four Seasons, and the Grand Melia, most of which are located in the Reforma (financial) district. Mexico City has no lack of romantic spots to have a wedding ceremony. From the ornate ballrooms at the top hotels to scenic Chapultepec Park.
