If you decide to spend your semester exchange in Mexico City then there is no doubt you will have a blast. The vibrant city has everything to offer that you can possibly wish for and more. With a population of 8.8 million, it’s truly a city that never sleeps. The stores are 24/7 open, there’s always a taxi ready and there are always people around. The city has grown so much over the last decades that it’s basically becoming larger than its state.
The many touristic places in Mexico City offer you lifetime of sights to visit. This has attracted many internationals to come ‘visit’ the city for either an internship or a semester exchange. But this often lasts longer than many initially expected. There’s a saying about Mexico that many come visit the country, but only a few are leaving. The incredible culture, weekends full of parties and of course the delicious food is for many people a reason to come back!
