Spring Events in Mexico City

Mexico City, the densely populated capital of Mexico, is a celebrated place of culture and history. Home to 21 million people, the Greater Mexico City area is a thriving area to visit, whether on vacation or business. Spring is a great time to visit this eclectic community. Here are the best activities and events in Mexico City that will give you a real local experience.

Templo Mayor

Both the Museo Templo Mayor and the Templo Mayor archaeological site give visitors a double treat when it comes to the Pyramid of Huitzilopochtli. Unearthed in 1976 and restored since then, this pyramid is a famed spiritual temple of the Aztecs. If you love the Aztec Empire or just Mexican history in general, don’t miss this attraction. It’s easy to get to near the national cathedral, plus it has a related museum on the same property that features background on the site’s chronology and stunning architecture. Free on Sundays.

Corredor Cultural Roma Condesa

This annual festival goes on in the spring and the fall to promote responsible, eco-friendly consumption. Culture fills the streets of Roma and Condesa, where you’ll have a ball checking out the local shops for souvenirs, eating at the many local restaurants, and viewing local art work at the galleries that dot the streets, according to Travel+Leisure.

Chapultepec Forest

This is Mexico City’s largest and most popular park, and boy is it beautiful. Also known as Bosque de Chapultepec, this was the former home of the Aztec Empire dating back all the way to the 13th century. Families, friends, singles and couples all mingle here to enjoy a nice spring day, bask in the sun, throw a ball and have a picnic. Here you’ll find the presidential residence, the former presidential palace, museums, lakes, and even a zoo. Check out the National Museum of Anthropology, AKA Museo Nacional de Antropología featuring artifacts and historical timelines of the country’s pre-Hispanic natives.


This is a revered UNESCO World Heritage site featuring beautiful, massive pre-Columbian pyramids such as the Palace of the Plumed Butterfly and the Pyramid of the Sun. Don’t miss a visit to the Museo de la Sitio to view artifacts from that time period. It will take you about an hour to get there from Mexico City. If you didn’t rent a car, you can take the bus from the Autobus del Norte bus station. The park opens at 8 a.m. every day. Get there early if you don’t like crowds.
