Features
Free, Popular with locals

It is often compared to New York's Central Park, but at more than 1,600 acres, Mexico City's Bosque Chapultepec is double in size and, some would argue, offers far more to keep visitors entertained. There's a zoo, multiple museums, a botanical garden, a recreational lake, monuments to Mexican patriots and international heroes, plenty of photo ops, and even an archaeological site, Montezuma's Baths. There are snack vendors, street performers, and souvenir sellers, too. It's impossible to take it all in, but spending an afternoon in the park gives visitors plenty to do and see. The park is particularly popular with locals on weekends.
