Many interesting places to visit. Go early so you can visit all museums around it. Take pictures riding a horse and traditional Mexican outfit. Be careful when going to the Castle. Too much walking to get there. We were exhausted before reaching the top.

Excellent views of the city and Chapultepec park. It is quite a (gentle) hike though. You'd need to check in large back-packs at security downstairs (10 peso) and make sure you don't have food in your purses/packs that you do carry up. Descriptions are provided but mostly in Spanish so have a translation app ready if you don't know Spanish.

One of my favorite parks ever. Aside from the beautiful boost of nature, the park is home to a world class anthropology museum, a number of art museums, beautiful architecture, a few ruins, a lovely lake, and some fantastic Pokemon catching;)... Be sure to give yourself plenty of time here!

The Chapultepec woods or forest. Amid the hustle of Mexico City, this charming forest will make you forget the urban annoyance. Well worth the trip to its fine castle. The Chapultepec Castle. A view of the Mexican metropolis combined with the mysticism of history that surrounds this area. Keep an eye open for one of Diego Rivera's mural laying here at the castle.

Great place to go if you want to escape the bustle of Mexico city, easily reached by the metro stop of the same name. It's a beautiful park area that you can walk around, work out or sit and read/people watch etc. It also gives access to the castle and other museums that surround the area

Such an enjoyable walk! Beautiful trees and lots of squirrels! Bring comfy shoes! If you are going to go up to the castle make sure you don't have food or water on you, they'll make you throw it out so plan accordingly!

A massive, massive space dedicated to the joys of the outdoors and sports and working out! So much space for running, biking, walking, exercising, and it even has a couple of restaurants. Parking is the only issue and can get dicey so plan way ahead or just don't drive and take a Metro or walk/ride what you are on into the park.

A really enjoyable park which has a market running through the route leading to the zoo. Lots of stalls with fried foods, drinks and souvenirs. The entertainment is the way the stallholders sing out loud that they are the cheapest but the best! All very safe and well maintained, definitely worth a visit, especially on a Sunday when locals make it come to life.

Beautiful and traditional. Go early and take advantage of all the fantastic places. Eat or take your food to get a bench and have your picnic. Go to the lake, row and then rent a bicycle to enjoy nature. See the castle and have fun visiting the mirrors or just walk around enjoying the area with museums. You can also go to a theme park with a roller-coaster! This place has it all for a day of performing many activities, such as walking enjoying the sun whilst being tranquil and just thinking about the present moment. Street market to buy souvenirs and traditional snacks! Locals and foreigners enjoy it and all are friendly! What a magnificent place.

Love this park. A real escape from the bustling city. So big. Easily spend the day walking around and enjoying the nature. Love it!

Amazing history, wonderful huge park surrounded by skyscrapers. Huge lake where you can rent small boats by the hour. There is also a zoo within the park and an outdoor dining area. The castle is a big show of opulence.

I m Belgian so this palace is a little bit coming home to Belgian royalty culture with our princes as the empress of Mexico. The gardens are marvellous. The castle is extraordinary. The rooms, the views, the furniture, the paintings,...Really visit this great place. Together with the Mexican flair you will have a great day.

While this is a wonderful park, the name means "forest" and this is likewise a remarkable forest. When one stands at the castle that graces the east central area at the top of "Grasshopper Hill," which we were told Chapultepec means, you look out in all directions at the tops of lush green trees with great city views beyond. We knew there were lanes and vendors and all manner of other activity going on below us, but what we saw was forest. In the midst of all the chaos that is Mx City, this is a wonderful oasis. And then of course there are numerous world class museums sprinkled around this huge park as well. A great destination on its own, and a fine spot to just hang for a bit away from the bustle.

The largest park in Latin America, has many activities to do, you can visit the castle, the zoo, take a boat on the lake, the various spaces to relax. In the park you can easily find places to eat, buy drinks and more. It has 7 museums within the park that are worth visiting.
