On our flight back from Costa Rica, we had a quick layover in Mexico City. Even though we only had about 5.5 hours on the ground, we headed into Zocalo (the city center) and did as much sight-seeing as we could. We visited a few churches, walked through the ruins of a very old Aztec temple, saw some beautiful architecture, and even had time to get some authentic Mexican tacos at a small taqueria. Below are some of the highlights from our layover in Mexico City and our quick trip into the city to do some sight-seeing.
