Day 2 - Day trip to Cholula.
Take a day trip to Cholula which is 30 min away from city town center. We took an Uber there for $6 USA dollars (If you pay for the tour is around $85 a person). He dropped us off in the center and then we walked to the famous church buitl on top of a pyramid. We spent the day walking and shopping. We had lunch at La Casa de Frida which I highly recommend. Here's a link to our vidoe we posted on Instagram-
Day 3 - Visit Fuertes de Loredo y Guadalupe. Have you heard of 5 de Mayo? Visit where they fought off the French a the Fort of Guadalupe. Walk the fort and learn about the history that took place. The whole area is actually a museum district, so you can visit different museums as well as enjoy the beautiful park overlooking the city.
