We have three and 1/2 days in Mexico City in May. We have a Museum and City tour day one, Teotihuacan Pyramids & Guadalupe Shrine day two.
Looking for suggestions for our other full day. We are not big museum people and we do love to walk.
It is a Monday and I was considering a tour to Xochimilco, it looks very tacky to me but friends have said they love it and we should go.
I know the Fodors peeps are discerning travellers so looking for comments on this and other suggestions for a full or half day tour. Or do you suggest we just explore the city more?
If yes to Xochimilco should we do the day tour with and Coyoacan, or just the evening tour. I would have liked to include the Frida but this is closed Monday and we dont have another day available as our visit is either side of a cruise ex Havana.

Xochimilco seems tacky for me.its just makes it hoot.But only on weekends, not Mondays. So much for discerning travelers!

tacky works somethings and sometimes we have to be the tourist and not the traveller! Cant change our other tours as they are part of our cruise package, so think we will just take your advice Baldone and explore, Thanks

I'm pretty sure theres a El Bajio (mexican food) restaurant nearby! It is inside the mall called Centro Comercial Parque Lindavista

Thanks Salik

will follow your recommendations, we are wiping Xochimil, didnt think it was our thing. we are staying at Gran Hotel Ciudad de México any recommendations for local dining around there? we don't want 5 star restaurants we are doing a cruise so will have had enough of that, we want to try more casual and local. Will see how far our shoes can take us as I would like to see Condesa/Roma Norte too.

Hotel Gran Ciudad de Mexico is beautiful!!! We stayed there for a corporate event in decmber and was great! The only thing to considerer is the rooms facing Zocalo can be noisy in the mornints. We had to wakeup early that morning so I dindnt mind but I you are sensitive to noise I would considere asking for another room!!

Look forward to hearing about your trip Salik, we have decided to do a day trip to Taxco and Cuernavaca, I always like to get out of a city if possible, but still have time to explore it a well. We can compare notes later.

What happened to Old Zealand? jk yeah Mexico City is so beautiful you never get bored

We all know that New Zealand is totally neglectable when we talk in most aspects, yes you guys have weird animals, you guys are also rich (tiny population also. However, not much culture comes from there. Don't get me wrong....I will never spend a dime going there, it is quite far from the Metropoli

Valenzuela its New Zeland, we no longer use the a as in New Zealand when spelling it, although both ways are correct.

There is no cartel violence in Mexico City. Crime is no different than any other large city in the world.

There are no cartels in Mexico City and almost no violence compared to other cities. It is actually safer than most US cities.
