Mexico City is easily one of my favorite, if not my favorite, cities in the world. So good choice, you will have lots of fun!

I unfortunately hadn't picked up the habit of creating Google Maps of my favorite places when I visited but these are the things I remember and highly recommend:


1. Maximo Bistrot

2. Contramar

3. Pujol (It's a Michelin Star restaurant so good luck on the reservation, but it's worth the price if you can manage to get a table. Compared to LA's fine dining prices is actually pretty cheap)

4. Margaritas on the rooftop of the Condesa DF hotel


Luis Barragan House (also needs a reservation)

Soumaya Museum

The House of Frida Khalo and Diego Rivera

Jumex Museum

Unno Gallery

The flea market on Paseo De LA Reforma

Mercado Abelardo Rodriguez (houses a Diego Rivera Mural)


Casa Bosques

Apt 25 (I think this is the name)

Hi Bye
