12 Mexico City attractions to visit this 2022

Did you know that Mexico City is one of the most visited cities in the country? This is no coincidence as it has a privileged location that provides an almost perfect climate throughout the year. In addition, it features attractions that are worth visiting for national and international tourists.

If you are planning to visit this great city, here is a list of the best sites that you can visit throughout the year.

January – Churrerías el Moro

For the winter cold, nothing like a good cup of hot chocolate and some freshly made churros at ‘El Moro’, a churrería with more than 80 years of history that today has become a franchise with locations in the Downtown, South and West of the city. This is a must on your list of places to visit if you come to the city.

February – Restaurants in Polanco, Condesa and Downtown

If you want to experience a unique Valentine’s Day with your partner, accompanied by the best atmosphere and the best scenarios of the city, try the restaurants in the Polanco, Condesa and Downtown neighborhoods.

One of our must-try suggestions is Fairchild 1869, the first Botanical House in Mexico whose menu specializes in mixology and gastronomy based on David Fairchild, a botanical explorer of the last century who introduced more than 200 thousand exotic species of plants and fruits to our continent. Sounds interesting, right?

March – San Juan Market

The origins of this market date back to the pre-Columbian indigenous markets, which is why it is a place full of tradition and an emblem of Mexico City. There are four markets that are part of the great Mercado de San Juan, which is characterized by offering pre-Hispanic and international food, as well as a diverse variety of food, including poultry, meat and seafood.

April – Templo Mayor

After so much talk about food, in April we suggest you take one of the must-see tours in Mexico City: the Templo Mayor museum, also located in downtown Mexico City.

The museum is open from Tuesday to Sunday from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. On Mondays it is closed for maintenance and media attention.

May – Chapultepec

When we talk about Chapultepec we are not only referring to the four sections of forest nestled in the heart of Mexico City, but also to its zoo that is currently in need of visitors, and the National Museum of History in the impressive Castle. Did you know that it is the only castle in all of the Americas? That’s right, not even the United States can boast of any construction like this.

And if that wasn’t enough, the international tourist community, considers Chapultepec Forest as a tourist attraction superior to New York’s Central Park.

June – Reforma and its surroundings

Since we are on this side of the city, in June we highly recommend a walk along Paseo de la Reforma and admiring the beautiful buildings that have positioned Mexico as the Latin American country with the most skyscrapers, after Panama.

Day or night, take the opportunity to take pictures at the Angel of Independence, the Diana Cazadora, as well as in the beautiful flower gardens that adorn this great avenue.

July – Six Flags Mexico

Mexico City is also known for having one of the best amusement parks in Latin America. Therefore, if you visit the south of the city, visiting Six Flags Mexico is a must; go on the Superman, the Medusa, and many other attractions.

Our recommendation is to visit during the first weeks of July to avoid crowds due to the children who are already on vacation.

August – Desierto de los Leones

Desierto de los Leones National Park in Cuajimalpa is a forest also located south of Mexico City that is characterized for preserving a former convent from the XVII century that belonged to the Carmelitas Descalzos.

The place provides a beautiful and vast vegetation, as well as special recreational places for the whole family.

September – Bellas Artes

We return to downtown Mexico City, making Bellas Artes and its surroundings a must-see destination for the national holidays. Don’t forget that this venue also hosts national and international artists, as well as the Amalia Hernandez Folkloric Ballet.

October – Coyoacán

Have you ever heard of the Frida Kahlo Museum or Masayoshi Ohira Park? Well, these attractions are located in Coyoacán, a municipality located in the south of the CDMX that is characterized by its history and its center full of businesses, restaurants and a spectacular atmosphere.

November – Xochimilco

The Day of the Dead is one of the most important dates in Mexico and in cities like Xochimilco, Tláhuac and Milpa Alta the tradition is more palpable. Therefore, we recommend you to visit the Xochimilco lake area where you can enjoy the best experiences in trajineras for tourists and locals

And while you are passing through, we recommend you to visit the town of San Andrés Mixquic in the municipality of Tláhuac to appreciate the love that the locals have for their dead.

December – Historic Downtown

For the year end, how about a tour of the Plaza de la Constitución or Zócalo. Enjoy the great decoration that the city government implements to dress the buildings with Christmas lights. We hope that this 2022 will be different and we can enjoy the attractions that have not been seen for some years.

Still, remember that Mexico city is ready to welcome you 365 days a year to enjoy all these places, restaurants and attractions.

If you are already convinced that your next vacation should be here, we invite you to make your experience even better by booking at FlowSuites and enjoy our privileged locations that offer an unbeatable location.
