I’m sitting in the JFK airport waiting for my flight to Mexico City. My original flight was to connect in Dallas and I would have arrived at 4:00 p.m. to Mexico City but it was canceled right before leaving for the airport because of ice storms in Dallas. I booked this flight that has a 5-hour layover and arrives at 12:15 a.m. My Airbnb is located in one of the nicest areas of the city, Condesa.
I’ll have 27 days to explore the largest city in the western hemisphere. I prepared an itinerary with places I will visit, listed below.
Bosque de Chapultepec
Museo Soumaya…America’s Park…Polanco… Parque Lincoln
Basílica de Guadalupe
Parque de la Bombilla…Plaza del Carmen…Casa del Obispo Galeria de Arte Popular…Parroquia San Jacinto…Atrio de la Parroquia San Jacinto…Bazaar Saturday

I’m signed up to do a couple of Airbnb experiences: Waters of Tolantongo, and a 5-hour bike riding tour. There’s also a hiking experience and a canal boat experience that I most likely will purchase. I’m also hoping to spend a couple of nights in the beautiful town of San Miguel de Allente.
I joined a couple of meetup.com groups, so I plan on meeting some locals. It should be an amazing trip!
