Mexico City is a huge metropolis comprised of multiple districts to explore which attracts both business and leisure travelers. Mexico City is not only the capital of Mexico, but it is also the largest city in North America by population. With a rental car, visitors can explore the vast area, while experiencing the rich culture contained within the city's 16 districts. You can take a stroll through the cobblestone streets of San Angel, or visit a museum in Chapultepec.
Due to the city's size, it is recommended to pick up a rental car upon landing at the Benito Juárez International Airport (MEX). Renting a car within the airport's terminals is often much cheaper than finding one elsewhere.
If history and architecture are what you are after, you can head to Centro Historico. It holds the Plaza de la Constitución, which is one of the largest squares in the world and is flanked by historic architecture. You can visit City Hall or La Catedral, which contains an altar made from solid gold.
For a more natural excursion, you can head to Tlalpan and visit Ajusco. This volcanic mountain has a National park with views of the city below.
The flight from Chicago O'Hare International Airport (ORD) to Mexico City will take about four and a half hours. Before visiting the city, it is important to familiarize yourself with driving regulations. There are programs, such as Hoy No Circula, that restrict driving at certain times of the day. Parking is quite scarce throughout the city but there are parking vendors that will take care of your car for a fee.
