Even though Mexico City is a giant metropolis packed with 20 million people and plagued with never-ending traffic, you can take a break from it all with a lazy afternoon here in Chapultepec Park.

Chapultepec Park is an important green space in the city that covers almost 1,700 acres — twice the size of New York’s Central Park.

But most visitors gravitate to the section of the park with the lake and all the food vendors. Families come here to relax, look at some birds, test out their new leashes.

And have some cotton candy.

And while you’re here in the park, be sure to make time for the Museum of Anthropology which happens to be the most visited museum in all of Mexico.

So if your time is limited, this one should definitely be at the top of your list.

The Museum of Anthropology is home to an extensive collection of pre-Hispanic artifacts from every civilization that has inhabited Mexico.

Also in the park is a friendly population of squirrels that are eager to eat right out of the palm of your hand. But don’t feed them any junk food cause they’ll die.
