We are arriving in a couple of weeks, first trip to Mexico and touring Chiapas for a week before getting to Mexico City. Please advise if there's something major that we shouldn't miss, or if I've picked a bad day to do any of the below -
Wednesday - Arrive lunchtime and travel to B&B in Condesa. Suggestions for evening? Wander around local area & Roma for drinks and dinner maybe.
Thursday - Chapultepec park - Castle and Anthropology museum, maybe Modern Art Museum.
Friday - Teothuacan early by bus. Afternoon rest. Evening lucha libre wrestling.
Saturday - Morning/lunchtime: Xochomilco gondola, late afternoon/eveining Coyoacan (this is my birthday so restaurant recommendations welcome :-)
Sunday - Centro Historico - see the National Palace, The Templo Mayor, Cathedral
Flight departs late Sunday night
NB we are pretty hardy travellers and hoping we can get around happily on the Metro. We aren't keen on more touristy places than necessary, but are into history/museums/parks and generally cafe sitting in cool/pretty parts of town :-) Travelling with a 12 year old, but he's used to central London and generally likes cities.
Any tips or advice really welcome - I feel like I haven't yet done enough research and will be still reading up on the flight there......
