This is a beautiful location in the middle of Mexico City, lots of greenery and awesome views once you get up to the castle. The whole park is immense and takes more than a day to see it all.

Do not miss this place! I only wish I could have broken down my visit into a few days. My favourite were the murals depicting history(ies).

There are breathtaking view from Chapultepec Castle. Beautiful gardens. It's best if you hire a tour guy, it is inexpensive and you'll get a lot of information that otherwise you won't have the chance to have. Really worth it.
