Mexico City (Ciudad de México)
Mexico City ("Ciudad de México" en Español) is the country's capital and is also referred to as the Federal District.
The city (formerly Tenochtitlan) was ruled by the Aztecs for centuries until the emperor Montezuma mistakenly handed it
over to the Spanish in the early 16th century. Now a modern and cosmopolitan city, Ciudad de México has
population of between 10 and 20 million people (metro / total) and is an enormous, sprawling masss of streets and buildings.
The city basically has everything you can think of and along with Monterrey is the center of
business activity in Mexico.
Famous landmarks include the "Monumento a La Revolucion", The Shrine of Guadalupe, and "La Ciudadela".
Other areas to visit include the Zona Rosa, Zócalo, Colonia Condesa, Bosque de Chapultepec, and San Angel.
However, if this is your first trip to Mexico, I highly recommend that you start your vacation in another,
less intimidating region of the country.
