We really liked Mexico City. It exceeded our expectations in every way.
We stayed in the historic city center, which made it easy to visit the major tourist sites around there. There was always something going on, and the vibe of the city is fantastic.
Walking around the historic center was awesome. We found the buildings and the ambiance really incredible. We even bought churros from a sweet grandma on the side of the street.
We went to a place called Vegamo and loved it. No words for how delicious it was.
The next day, we took the metro the south of the city and went to the Frida Kahlo museum. We were hungry and had time before the admission time on our ticket, so we stopped at Veggicano for some tacos. Incredible.
The Frida Kahlo museum was awesome. We watched the movie “Frida” with Selma Hayek again. It was cool to walk through the house where she basically started and ended her life, returning many times for various reasons.
From there, we passed through a little market and then caught a taxi to an El Chavo del Ocho/Chapolin-themed restaurant. These are 2 of the most famous children’s TV shows in history from Mexico. We liked it a lot.
The next morning, we walked around the old town again in a different part, just seeing what we stumbled on.
We also through the lobby of the central post office was incredible.
More walking without a real plan, just seeing what we see.
We stumbled into a Chinatown area.
Then some great graffiti and an obligatory photo spot.
For dinner, it was back to Vegamo. I asked for something “super traditional”, and whatever this was, it was fantastic.
The next day was our last day. We visited the Catedral Metropolitana just off the Plaza de la Constitucion near our hotel.
That night, we went to Plaza Garibaldi to see the Mariachi bands.
