Mexico city its called: Mexico city or DF. DF means Federal District I beg to differ somewhat: It's both. Quite often, Mexicans say just "MÃ©xico" to refer to Mex…ico City. For clarity or emphasis, they say, "La Ciudad de MÃ©xico," which is "Mexico City" in English. "D.F." is the abbreviation in Spanish for "Distrito Federal" -- "Federal District" in English. It's the national capital, and it's an entity roughly comparable to the District of Columbia in the U.S. The "Estados Unidos Mexicanos" -- United Mexican States -- comprise 31 states and a Federal District. Much as New York City or Boston has come to absorb what were once separate villages and towns, so has Mexico City become coterminous with the entire Federal District over the years since its 1824 creation. Unlike New York, where local usage reserves that term for Manhattan, "MÃ©xico" CAN refer to anywhere in the city/federal district. Ditto for "D.F." But it's said as "el D.F." -- "the D.F." And "THE D.F." is what all the English speakers I know here who also speak Spanish say in English. Only people from around that area call it "DF" or "Mexico City", the vast majority of Mexicans just call it MÃ©xico. There are even other more common funny names than "Ciudad de MÃ©xico", "Distrito Federal" or "La Capital" (those names are commonly used by area locals). (Final pedantic point: From 1824 until 1997, its chief executive was a regent named by the Mexican President. Its "jefe de gobierno" -- chief of government/mayor -- since has been elected. Not much different from D.C. that way.)
Mexico City is considered a megacity because it is the 15th largest city in the world by city proper and the third largest by metropolitan area.
