about mexico city

Mexico is one of our favorite places. It's where pre-Hispanic civilizations have mixed tradition with modernity in a unique way. Mexico City is one of the best culinary hot spots on the planet where spice and robust flavors mix with tangy citrus and fresh sweet fruit, chocolates and nuts.

In Mexico there is a trip for every traveler. Endless kilometers of beaches and excellent boutique hotels offer warm hospitality with some of the best service anywhere. Magical small towns and spectacular ruins such as Chichen Itza, Tulum and Palenque are high on any visitor's list.

Take a ride on the only train in Mexico through spectacular canyons or explore a Chiapas rainforest around quaint communities like San Cristobal de Las Casas.

Fancy a tequila while the mariachis play?

things to do in mexico city

Mexico City is just amazing. A combination of culture, hip neighborhoods, museums, delicious cuisine, diversity and.... oh yes traffic.

You can start your visit to the metropolis in Downtown Mexico City. It is the perfect place to start because it has so many important points of interest, the Cathedral, the Zocalo, the palaces, the Templo Mayor and some of our favorite restaurants, such as  El Cardenal or Azul Historico (Isabel La Catolica, 30).

Check out the Coyoacan Neighborhood, a bohemian style district where Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera had their house and is now one of the best museums in the city. A great option for weekends is San Angel, a cobblestoned gorgeous neighborhood with colonial houses and a great arts and crafts market during Saturdays.

Polanco, the Condesa and the Roma neighborhoods are the three most vibrant and cool areas of the city where you'll find the best restaurants, shops and museums. You can't miss the Museum of Anthropology, Chapultepec Park and the Castle with a magnificent view of Paseo de la Reforma and the Soumaya Museum, which has a spectacular building. Some of our favorite places to eat in Mexico City are located in these neighborhoods, like Contramar (where you can have delicious fish dishes), Massimo Bistrot (probably our favorite) or Biko (Masaryk, 407) and Quintonil, which are in the Polanco area and within Latin America's 50 best restaurants.
