Slow Travel Destination: Mexico City

a building with a lot of colorful flags hanging from it's roof.

Mexico City is the bustling capital of Mexico and the most populated city in North America with a population of just under nine million. The vibrant Historic Center is rich with Mexican history, culture, and breathtaking pieces of architecture. Stroll through the open spaces of the Zócalo Plaza to admire the Metropolitan Cathedral or visit the Palacio de Bellas Artes a few blocks over. The cobblestone streets and colonial charm of Coyoacán, and the bohemian Zona Rosa are other popular neighborhoods.

There are loads of green spaces to find dispersed throughout Mexico City, too. Bosque de Chapultepec is considered the lungs of the city with its dense forests. Alameda Central is one of the oldest urban parks anywhere in the Americas and is situated beside the Historic Center. Desierto de Los Leones is like another world on the city’s edge and is a hotspot for hiking adventures.

And don’t miss the chance to wander through traditional Mexican markets to pick out your favorite local handmade crafts and culinary treats. Coyoacan Market and La Merced Market are two popular gathering spots with an endless array of local vendors.

With all of its charm and activity, it’s no surprise that Mexico City has a strong digital nomad and expat community made up of residents from around the world. It’s a great place for slower travelers looking for affordable accommodation and vibrant culture.
