One of the most requested places to relax within the chaotic Mexico City is Los Dínamos National Park. This place is one of the largest green spaces in the capital and the air is so fresh and clean that it fills you with energy.
This park is known as Los Dínamos because there are some hydroelectric power generators. These supplied old textile factories in the area during the Porfiriato.

Extreme sports and recreational activities
Within its more than 2,400 hectares that are divided into four sections, you can do many activities. Some more adventurous, others more relaxing, but all connect you with nature.
From long walks, picnics, cycling, horseback riding, to climbing or jumping on the zip line. You can also rappel, camp, fish for trout or just have a good time with your family and friends.
The best thing is that the activities fit all budgets and the entrance fee is quite accessible. Of course, as it is a wooded area, sometimes it feels a little cold, so it is advisable to bring a jacket. If you go on weekends there’s more people, but there are also more places with delicious Mexican snacks.
