Mexico City, the oldest capital of the New World, is rich in its indigenous and colonial history.
- Start your day with huevos rancheros for breakfast.
- Visit Museo Nacional de Antropología. The first seven galleries on the ground floor are in chronological order. Plan to spend a good part of the day at the museum; worth it.
- Spend 3-4 days exploring the city and its vicinity. Enjoy the architecture, people, food, music, markets, etc.
P.S. If you complain about smog and overpopulation in Mexico City, I take it you haven’t been to Beijing or Delhi.
