Lively marketplaces streaming with colorful fabrics, stunning Aztec- and Spanish-influenced architecture, and pulsating nightlife where you can dance until dawn—discover all of this and more in Mexico City. This sprawling metropolis is big and bold, and offers the experiences to match. Fortunately, hotels in Mexico City are the perfect base for the intrepid explorer.
Bienvenidos a Mexico City
Book one of the hotels near the Bazar del Sabado for a taste of authentic Mexico City. This open-air market takes place every Saturday at Plaza San Jacinto. Buy a hand-painted ceramic vase, that perfect artisan necklace, or an original watercolor by a local artist. Drop your goods back at the hotel, then make your way to the Frida Kahlo Museum, housed in the legendary painter’s former residence. Or spend the afternoon at the historic Plaza de la Constitucion, and at sunset, grab a photo op as Mexican soldiers march out to take down the large flag that flies in the center. For the ultimate in relaxation, reserve one of the hotels with a pool in Mexico City and savor a glass of wine at a rooftop oasis before dinner—or just book a secluded resort to really get away from it all.
Edibles abound in this foodie’s paradise. Mexico City hotels in Centro or La Condesa are near the best street food. Search for the unusual pambazo, made of hard, white bread soaked in chili sauce, or tlacoyos topped with sliced cactus, cheese, or salsa. For dessert, listen for the sound of the camote vendors, who serve up hot sweet potatoes drizzled with condensed milk and cream. Wash it all down with a watermelon or lime agua fresca. Heading east, the up-and-coming La Roma neighborhood serves up homemade bread and hip Mexican fusion restaurants. Feeling fancy? For exclusive dining and nightlife, the upscale Lomas area is your wonderland.
