Do & See
With its 16 delegaciones (boroughs) divided into several hundred colonias (neighbourhoods), there is always something new to explore around Mexico City. While the historic centre of the city with the National Palace, the Mexico City Cathedral and the Palace of Fine Arts is a magnet for tourists, opportunities to have a good time abound both here and beyond. Climb the Teotihuacán Pyramid of the Sun, one of the largest of its kind, browse through amazing creations at craft markets or relax in the Viveros de Coyoacán public park.

Independence Day and Parade

On September 15th (yes, not May 5th), chilangos gather in front of the National Palace to hear the President shout from the balcony "Viva México", and to shout it back — the famous Grito de Independencia or Cry of Independence. The Independence Day is celebrated with a big party in the evening and a military parade along Avenida Paseo de la Reforma the next morning. If you happen to be around at this time of the year, make sure not to miss the festivities.
