Located in the southwestern part of Mexico City, in a town called Tlalpan, lies a miniature city made for kids, known as KidZania Cuicuilco. Consider this trip a foray into something of a mix between a children's museum and an adventure hall; KidZania is all about kids having an amazing, educational and exhilarating experience, while being the drivers of their own good time. Built to look and feel like a small city run by kids (ages 4 to 16), the idea here is to "earn" money (KidZos) to spend on activities. Educational and engaging activities like coordinating a construction dig can segue into all kinds of fun things like racing cars or defeating their fears on a ropes course. A fun and educational way to spend the day, Kidzania Cuicuilco is a Mexico City attraction not to be missed.
Tickets to KidZania cost between $16 and $24. The site is located at Insurgentes Sur 3500 in Col. Pena Pobre.
