Where to go in Mexico City

 

Where to go on your next trip to Mexico City / Donde ir en tu próxima visita a la Ciudad de México

By/Por: Roxana Vázquez

You have arrived in Mexico City and you have come to a place where art, cuisine and entertainment are intertwined with each step you take. If you come for a few days, I am suggesting a weekend with the ideal activities and places for you to make the most out of this magnificent destination.

Thursday:
For your first day I recommend beginning in Polanco. Here you can visit the Soumaya Museum, a place with a very innovative interior and exterior design that offers its visitors a themed tour of six rooms filled with art and history. Before night falls go to Centro Cultural del Bosque, a venue with five theaters with various stage proposals and plays that you can enjoy.

Friday:
Venture into the alternative and let’s take a walk on La Roma, a neighborhood perfect for walking and enjoying the architecture of this area. I highly recommend eating in this area as you’ll find something to satisfy every palate. At night visit Saint or Tom’s Leather Bar, two hot spots for Mexico City’s gay community.

Saturday:
Take a walk down Paseo de la Reforma to get to know the essence of this city and its history through its emblematic monuments. Journey all the way to the Zocalo in downtown, making a mandatory stop in Bellas Artes, the most important cultural center in Mexico. To end the day on a high note go to Zona Rosa, where you can find bars and clubs for all tastes.

Sunday:
Before you leave visit Coyoacan and buy crafts typical of the region. To bring a fabulous close to your weekend visit the Frida Kahlo Museum. Inside the blue house you will find not just paintings of the artist, but also items that were witness to the everyday life of this great Mexican painter.
