Mexico City is heavily populated. More than its happy bunch of people, the city is heavily loaded with cultural and historical attractions that a newcomer like you should not miss. A good starting point would be Zócalo, the city’s main square with several impressive colonial buildings surrounding it. The plaza was once the center for ceremonies of an Aztec city. Now, it is a popular tourist attraction. Although the years have made Mexico City progressive, it has wisely preserved its colonial architecture including cathedrals, museums, and even residences. When you are in a place with great aesthetics and a wealth of traditions, it is wise to stay in boutique hotels with pleasant features and service. Check out our list of the top 10 Tablet Hotels in Mexico City.
