Mexico City Tour, with its tourist bus and the Attraction Pass offers you different options to discover the highlights of the city.

The known as the green lung of Mexico City, with its 686 hectares, is two times bigger than the Central Park of New York. Apart from being an oasis of peace in the bustling City of Mexico, this park offers a whole host of leisure and cultural options.

The also known as Chapultepec Forest is much more than a conventional park, there you can find the famous Chapultepec Castle, museums such as the  Museum of Modern Art, the National Museum of History or the Papalote Museo del Niño and the theme park La Feria Chapultepec Magico.
