Mexico City & Guadalajara: Safe & Attractive Tourist Destinations?

Jump to last reply

About 6 years ago I traveled throughout Mexico and really liked the colonial towns of Guanajuato, Zacatecas and Campeche. Oaxaca, Queretaro, Merida, Morelia and San Miguel de Allende were also pleasant for me…but not ‘must-sees’ like Guanajuato, Zacatecas and Campeche. Anyway, I don’t know what to think about Mexico City & Guadalajara. I only passed through. I know they have colonial areas, but I also know they are Mexico’s biggest cities. So, overall, I don’t know whether they are among the country’s most attractive destinations or whether they are unattractive cities but with perhaps a small area with nice old colonial feel. What do you think? Also, how safe are these 2 cities to travel in nowadays? I am not Mexican and I’d simply want to walk around and see the sites.
