Mexico City Guide
Let us start by saying this city has so much to offer, and it would take months of being here to have a true grasp of it all. However, we still feel like we should give some recommendations from our short time in Mexico City to help point you in the right direction.
Chaya Bnb -. Located right above Almeda Park, the stylish rooms and rooftop views are the main attraction. We have a blog post dedicated to this lush BnB.
El Patio 77 - Our stay at El Patio 77 was nothing short of amazing. The rooms are stunning and the staff really makes you feel right at home. Check out our blog post here.
Airbnb - There’s an abundance of Airbnb’s to choose from in Mexico City. Most of them are really beautiful and inexpensive. We stayed in one our final night of our trip and really felt like we got the local experience. Here’s the link.
Eat & Drink
Rosetta - Hands down Rosetta was the best restaurant we had in Mexico City. We ate there for lunch and even considered going back for dinner that same day. The food here is beyond delicious. Grab a cocktail, order some pasta, and don’t leave without trying the Mole.
Contramar - Two Words, Tuna Tostados. Yes, everything else on the menu is delicious here, but the Tuna Tostados are the real stars of the show. It’s worth mentioning that the Pescado A La Talla and the dessert tray also come highly recommend!
Taqueria “Orinoco” - The perfect late night taco stop. We tried our very best to attempt to eat all the top taquerias while we were here, and we can say that the chichiron taco here was one of the best tacos we’ve ever had!
Taqueria Los Cocuyos - This was our first taco stop after we landed and we had about 6 tacos each. They definitely didn’t disappoint. Our favorites were the chorizo and al pastor.
Churreria El Moro- So we’re not that crazy about churros but this restaurant had us reconsidering. These crunchy but soft, sweet without being too sweet pieces of bread were everything we needed. Be sure to get the chocolate dipping sauce to dunk these babies with every bite. (Double dipping is accepted)
Chiquitito Cafe - A cute cafe in a cool neighborhood. Great way to start the day and sit outside with a nice cup of coffee.
Cicatriz Cafe - This was our favorite coffee shop in town.
Shops & Things to Do
Xochimilco - The colorful Canals of Mexico City. Relax, grab and drink and some food, and listen to live music all while floating on gondola style boats.
Loose Blues - A curated boutique featuring some vintage pieces with a Japanese restaurant and bar on the second floor.
Here are a few things that we didn’t get around to but were on our list.
-Museo Frida Kahlo. Casa Azul
- Luis Barragán House and Stuido
Pasillo De Humo- We had a late dinner here so unfortunately we don’t have photos. However we can attest that this restaurant isn’t to be missed. The duck mole is outstanding and they have an extensive Mezcal selection.
