Where do you want to go?


The Zocalo is the main plaza in the Historic Center of Mexico City. The plaza itself, one of the largest city squares in the world, is mostly empty apart from the enormous Mexican Flag that is ceremoniously hoisted and lowered daily, before being returned to the National Palace. I was not able to catch the ceremony, but if you can you really should. Raising is around 8am & lowering at 6pm, check with your accommodation for up-to-date times. The flag really is awesome and a great photo spot! You can actually see the flag from numerous places around the city.

The square has historical significance as the base of events and ceremonies over the years, as well as protests, the most recent being over the fraudulent 2012 elections.
