Weekend in Mexico

My experience in Mexico

sunny 28 °C

I used air Canada flight to travel from Toronto to Mexico. The flight was 4 hours 45 minutes, the flight departed on July 1st at 9:00pm and arrived in Mexico at 12:45am, since it was so late and I was tired i checked into my hotel and slept so that I could start fresh the next day. The flight costed me $441 for economy class which was the cheapest option for me.
On this trip I stayed at Hotel Condesa DF. I cannot recommend this hotel enough. Everything about this place made me want to move in permanently.The main floor has a bar and restaurant and this is where breakfast is served. Breakfast is one of my most favourite things in the world and if you want specifics, Mexican breakfast tops the list. The buffet breakfast here was ridiculously good. The coffee was made to order and there is even a room lined with photography and art books for your browsing.

What to Do
Museums & Galleries:
What to do in Mexico City really depends on what you are into. You could literally spend weeks just visiting museums and art galleries. Most of the major galleries and musuems are located along Paseo de La Reforma, which is a big boulevard that is a major artery to the city. Chapultepec Park is here as well. Museo Nacional de Antropología in particular is one to visit. If you go, you need to dedicate at least a half day, if not a full one so that you can explore every nook of this place. If you have been to Mexico before, you have likely seen “jade” masks at every souvenir shop. The original jade mask that belonged to King K’inich Janaab Pakal is here and it’s beautiful. More about Pakal in a later post because we visited his tomb in Palenque later on this trip. My favourite gallery to visit Museo de Arte Moderno. If you want to see Frida Kahlo paintings, this is where you must go. The iconic Two Fridas painting is here, along with many others.
