Mexico is best known for it's warm beaches and resorts, but there is much more to the country than just Cancun and Cabo. Mexico City is a busy and rich metropolitan city alive with culture, museums, delicious street food, and historic ruins. Did you know there is a ancient Mayan pyramid right smack in the heart of the city? The Museum of Anthropology being one of my favorite in the city houses the ancient Sunstone or Aztec Calendar. It is enormous with 23 different rooms each with its own theme, allow plenty of time to explore all the artifacts.
