TravelPod Member ReviewsCrowne Plaza Hotel de Mexico Mexico City
Hotel was selected by host company for location: right around corner from World Trade Center tradeshow. Room was very nice; bed had 4 pillows, cleaning ladies made little fan-shaped decorations with toilet paper end strip. Breakfast buffets were good, tho bacon with the eggs was a bit dodgy. But coffee was very good.

And what a museum it is! For about $5 Canadian, you have access to the entire permanent collection which encompasses the native cultures of a number of different regions in Mexico, but the museum is so big we only really spent time in the Mayan and Aztec sections. The Aztecs were the ones that lived in the area that ...
... today to go see the Teotihuatican which is one of the biggest Aztec pyramids in Mexico. It was $300 peso, approx $25 US.

Our next stop was the markets near the pyramids. We were shown the liquid inside the plant where tequila 23rd May, Friday Andrew had been sick all night throwing up and ...
