theres a cracking park in Roma where people walk their dogs.
Bosque de chapultepec - is that big park
Trotskys house/museum is near to the frida kahlo museum/house (best to book in advance).
Both of those are within walking distance of Plaza coyoacan which is a lovely little area, got a park, square and loads of bars and places to eat. Got a guide book that plots a really good walking route through the area I can dig out if you’re interested. Theres a few parks, churches and old buildings as this used to be the city centre before something like that
theres plaza garibaldi if you want some mariachi fun.
loads of art shit I could recommend, the former college of san ildeonso has some good murals
Go watch some wrestling or to the azteca too.
had some great tacos at el tizoncito on av. tamaulipas.
plan V cafe was great for vegans/vegetarian breakfast
la pitahaya vegana another good spot for v food
Churreria el moro for churros
la nacional on cda. orizaba has a good range of pulque
loads more but they were nearish roma I think.
Ah I think we’re also going in January! Last went pre covid so I thnk a lot of the food places we enjoyed aren’t there anymore.
Wrestling obvs – there’s a good Pulqueria quite close to the main arena too
The museum of anthropology is incredible
Daytrip to Teotihuacan for Pyramids though there are less touristy sites elsewhere
If you fancy a treat/spenny dinner then Pujol is michelin star and incredible
We didn’t make it to UNAM sculpture park last time but hoping to this time
Casa Luis Barragan for architecture
Frida Kahlo house (book in advance)
Xochimilco for riverboats and Mariachi
If you like meat, the meat market in Mercado 20 de Noviembre is incredible – an experience to visit in itself. Lined with butchers and everyone has a grill and you get a massive plate f meat delivered to your table, couple of bowls of vegetables and a cold Victoria beer, sorted.
Criollo is another restaurant by Enrique Olvera, the chef that runs Pujol. Really beautiful building.
Went 10 or so years ago, but Mexico City was great. We did a walking food tour which was brilliant.
Went to Tulum afterwards which isn’t too far from Playa Del Carmen. Went to see the Mayan Ruins at Coba. Can’t remember where it was exactly, but swimming in a cenote was one of the best things I have ever done on a holiday. Loved it.
