Mexico City, also known as CDMX, is one of my favorite places in the world. It’s a little crazy—to have spent so much of my life crossing oceans in search of faraway cities—only to fall in love with a place so close to home. It’s the only city outside of the USA I have traveled to more than once, and plan to visit again and again (and again).
The love started in 2016. Anthony and I were on the last leg of our RTW trip and searching for flights from Santiago, Chile to Guatemala. While looking, we discovered it cheaper to fly from Santiago to Mexico City first, before catching a flight to Guatemala, so we booked.
Having only ever been to the US/Mexico border, as well as a few tourist beach towns, I had no idea what to expect of CDMX—one of the largest cities in the world. I’ll admit that, at first, I was in it for the food and the margaritas (so cliché, I know), but during our short, 4-day visit, I fell in love with a lot more than tacos. And in February, we returned for our second stay.
