Mexico City (aka CDMX, Cuidad de Mexico) is the capital of Mexico, usually visited by fewer travelers than more popular Yucatan peninsula. In addition, it »enjoys a reputation« of being very polluted and one of the most dangerous capitals. You know what we say? Bullocks! After all, Mexico City has almost 10 million inhabitants and, like in any other major city in the world, there is a certain amount of smog and a few neighbourhoods that are best avoided at night. I put together a perfect itinerary for 4 days in Mexico City for first-time visitors, including tips where to stay and what else to see, if you can add an additional day or two to this Mexico City Itinerary.

Soon after we embarked on our yearlong honeymoon, we started getting questions from our friends, relatives and even some strangers (ok, my mom's coworkers who were pushed to read this blog, but anyway).
