Ciudad de México

Welcome to one of the most Cosmopolitan cities in the world! Mexico City offers their visitors a rich intercultural environment, where you will be able to immerse yourself into a traditional Mexican lifestyle, but without giving up the advantages of an urban life. Likewise, there are endless museums, varied nightlife, all sorts of food, nice weather during the entire year and much more. Since it is located in the central area of the country, it is also the best point for travelling or moving to other tourist spots.

Some of the most representative places of the city are:

It is a typical and colonial place where all sorts of people hang out, especially artists, journalists and intellectuals, hence offering a peaceful and artistic environment. This is the place where the famous artist Frida Kahlo was born, lived and died.

Downtown Coyoacan is the second most visited place within Mexico City, only surpassed by Mexico City’s historic downtown. It is located only 20 minutes away from the Campus.
