Zócalo is the city center of Mexico City and it’s hard to miss if you’re in Mexico City. The Mexican flag in the middle is one of the biggest flags I’ve seen in my life. It’s one of the largest public plazas in the world and is one of Mexico’s most famous tourist destinations.
Zócalo has a little bit of everything. It’s common for your tour to start here. You may do a walking tour around the center. Sometimes there will be protests going on in the center. Other times they might be Aztec dancers in traditional garments and headpieces or other cultural celebrations.
The center is beautiful and it’s huge. There are a lot of people there but it’s not quite packed. It’s a great place to explore Mexico’s historical buildings and appreciate it’s architecture.
There’s good food in the area and you can always find some street vendors in the square.
