Mexico City

first stop....

sunny

Mexico City, also called the De Fa or just Mexico, its the capital of Mexico and is a huge metropolitan area with around 20 million people living within its boundaries, one of the largest urban agglomerations in the world.

Mexico city is massive! This one of the largest cities in the world and after looking at a map it is easy to see. Luckily most of the areas tourists are interested are located in a few neighborhoods that are easy to reach by the convenient metro system. Some neighborhoods are littered with famous sites while some are just worth going to for a quick stop.

People have been living here since the early 14th century, when the Aztecs settled on an island in lake that no longer exists. This has had the added benefit of making the city sink.

GDP capita $14,200 (2008 est.)
