    Okay, totally jealous of your forthcoming trip! Don’t know where you are staying in Mexico City – the place is HUGE. But, if like art then I totally recommend the Diego Rivera (married to Frida Kahlo) murals in the Palacio Nacional. They are stunning. It is in downtown on the main square (called the Zocolo) alongside the Cathedral http://www.differentworld.com/mexico/areas/mexico-city/guide-zocalo.htm

    There is hotel that looks over the Zocolo called the Hotel Majestic http://www.differentworld.com/mexico-hotels/majestic/index.htm. The restaurant / bar has the most incredible view of the square which is fantastic if there happens to be a protest on at the same time.

    Also, visiting the Virgen of Guadalupe is an experience, especially on a sunny day. Basilica de Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe is an entire hillside dedicated to this piece of material with an image of the Virgin Mary on it which appeared on the cloak of an ordinary Indian way back when. There are churches of different time periods all over the hill and loads of pilgrims go to pray to the Virgin which is a sight in itself.

    It is a bit of trip out of the city however, the Pyramids of Teotihuacan are worth the effort. When I went in 1988 it was just all these pyramids in the middle of nowhere. Now there is a town to one side and lots of hawkers but the Sun and Moon pyramids are definitely worth climbing.

    Now for Lima. The Church and Convent of Santo Domingo is fantastic. Small and won’t take too long to go through. Lots and lots of bones as people used to be buried under their church in the old days. A little grim but worth the visit for the 12 stations of the cross painted by Ruebens in this tiny room where they are so close!

    Everyone also says not to go to the Mercado Central but we had a brilliant time there. Very interesting and great food – especially the juices.

    Have a great time!
