Witness the remains of the Ancient Maya civilization here in Mexico in wonderful proportions. The Mayapan archaeological site, like Chichén Itzá, is also located in the Yucatán region.

There are endless nightlife options in this city and it’s a guarantee you’ll never be short of quality choices. Stick to the lively Condesa and Polanco neighborhoods if it’s your first time in the city.
