Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: don't miss a visit to Museo Frida Kahlo, step into the grandiose world of Chapultepec Castle, then get a new perspective on nature at Museo Nacional de Antropologia, and finally look for gifts at Sabra Dios.

Oaxaca

— 11 nights
Capital city of the eponymous state, Oaxaca relies heavily on its colonial charm, its core a maze of tree-shaded alleys flanked by photogenic mansions, government buildings, and old churches.
Attractions like Zona Arqueologica de Monte Alban and Playa La Bocana make great kid-friendly stops. Get out of town with these interesting Oaxaca side-trips: Yagul (in Tlacolula), Zona Arqueologica Zaachila (in Zaachila) and Zona Arqueologica de Mitla (in San Pablo Villa de Mitla). Spend the 31st (Sun) behind the viewfinder with Mezcal Educational Tours. And it doesn't end there: tour the pleasant surroundings at Coyote Aventuras, take in the spiritual surroundings of Cathedral of Our Lady of the Assumption, don't miss a visit to Hierve el Agua, and admire the striking features of Basilica de Nuestra Senora de la Soledad.
