Mexico City Is the Travel Destination That Has It All

No matter how many times you touch down in Mexico City, no two visits are ever the same—partly because of the tangled labyrinth of streets that ensures you're always discovering something new, but also because it's a city that's always evolving. There might be a modern high-rise you didn't notice before,  an expat you meet who now calls the capital home or a chef who's opening her new concept right alongside a decades-old taqueria. This is the city that has something for every traveler.

So dig up your passport and block off that free weekend on your calendar: We're celebrating everything Mexico City has to offer, from its towering trompos of al pastor pork to the secret spots only those who live here know about to the people who've turned the city into one of the world's leading culinary destinations.
