About Mexico City

Mexico City is a densely populated, bustling, clean city consisting of large communities of immigrants, and the hub for art, fashion, food, architecture, and business. It is the second largest city in the world with an enormous number of museums, after London. The majority of people speak Spanish, the official language. With a church in every neighborhood, the inhabitants consider religion a vital part of their cultural background. Mexico City holds an elite position in terms of the cultural and financial status of America and is the most populated city in North America. The huge population is indeed a blessing to this city as it has created cultural diversity and varied ethnicity especially contributed by immigrants. Although you will find varied cultural aspects in certain areas, much of the core of the city relies on traditional Mexican culture, with most of its reflections in food and handicrafts. The city is also the center of world-class music and houses a number of famous musicians who are mostly Spanish. Mexico City is known for its liberal and progressive policies on civil rights and the standard of living.
