Did you finish work early? Head off downtown

Take 4 hours

Do not stay cooped up in your hotel! If you are in Mexico City for work, take the opportunity to explore this wonderful city. Got the afternoon free? Take off your jacket, put on some comfortable clothes and make your way to the center.

If you do not know Mexico City, you should at least visit the Historic Center, a World Cultural Heritage Site Stroll down the Alameda, where the wonderful Palace of Fine Arts is located, along Calle Madero, which is pedestrianized, to the Zocalo. On the way, you’ll see ancient palaces, museums, restaurants, shops and take in the atmosphere of the city’s busiest street. In the spectacular Zocalo, walks through the archways, go and see Diego Rivera’s magnificent murals in the Palacio de Gobierno, and take a look at the Cathedral. You can also climb up to the Torre Latino viewpoint, the 360 degree views of the city will take your breath away any time of the day.

If you want to find good restaurants and atmosphere in the street, go to La Condesa or the colonia Roma. In La Condesa, the restaurants are concentrated in Nuevo León and Tamaulipas, but it’s worth taking a walk around Amsterdam, which has dozens of cafés, small restaurants and designer shops ... If you decide to go to Roma (a good choice for dinner or going out to celebrate), the main avenue is Álvaro Obregón, and there is also a great atmosphere in Colima. Here you’ll find restaurants, cafes, mezcal bars and some of the most popular clubs in the city.

In the evening, we suggest you go to Polanquito, next to Lincoln Park and Julio Verne street. Here you’ll find all kinds of bars, cafés and restaurants in one of the most elegant parts of the city. And if you’re in the mood for adventure, hop on the Turibus Cantinas, which will take you to the most emblematic saloon bars in the center safely.

You are in Mexico City. Enjoy!

From Santa Fe and Polanco, you can take the Turibus or Capital Bus to the center. Alternatively, you could take a cab.

Always remember to take authorized taxis (taxis de sitio) to get back to your hotel.

If you prefer to take advantage of your stay in Mexico City to buy quality traditional crafts, we suggest the MAP and FONART shops. You can also check out some of the traditional craft markets such as San Juan and La Ciudadela.
