Happy New Year my beautiful Souls!! Sorry, I’ve been MIA for so long but I’ve been working so hard on some fun upcoming projects that I can’t wait to share with you. However, not yet 🙂 because this blog post it’s all about Mexico lindo!
Those who have been following me on IG know that I spent New Year’s in Mexico city! This trip was so unexpected because originally I wanted to go to Cabo San Lucas or Puerto Vallarta to visit a lovely blogger friend. But plane tickets were so freaking expensive that I decided to go to Mexico city. Little did I know, how much I was going to fall in love with the city. First of all; as a typical uneducated person; I was like…Mexico? what is there to do (Confused face)! Therefore, I decided to do research on things to do and I was so blown away on how much there is! Literally; my findings were incredible.
Here are 6 reasons why You must visit Mexico city Now:
- Culture: Mexico city has gone through an unbelievable transformation over the past years. Known for its charm and colorful landmarks. You’ll truly won’t miss home being in Mexico City. Transportation is so convenient and you have options to either take an Uber or the metro. Do not worry about your safety because despite the bad reputation; Mexico has security everywhere. This doesn’t mean you’ll go to a bad neighborhood. If you decided to go to Mexico city here are places YOU can stay and feel safe: Polanco,
Condensa, Del Valle and Santa Fe (extremely wealthy areas) You’ll only see Porsches, and BMW cars just to name a few. I suggest You consider Not to communicate during peak time to avoid traffic (4 pm to 530pm or 8 am to 930am). Plan your locations ahead of time and always be cautious where you go! I can’t stress enough how safe I felt while I was walking around the streets. At the same time; I wasn’t being flashy and acted as if I was a local.
- History: Mexico city has influences from Aztecs, Spain, and France. The majority of Mexicans have to take French as a second language.
Therefore, you get to see beauty everywhere. From old historical towns to the most modern incredible sites. You can choose to explore; as you please, and not get bored at all.
When it comes to Mexican cuisine in Mexico city; you will be surprised to know that it’s Not just all about the delicious tacos or cheese quesadillas made out of with real corn. But the variety of dishes and incredible desserts due to the Europeans influence. Despite all of the mix; many dishes in Mexico are defined by their sauces which are usually very spicy. In this beautiful country, you will find endless restaurants, street tacos, cafes, and bakeries. In fact; my favorite quesadillas are from Xochimilco.
Before heading to Mexico; I didn’t have any expectations on how the city was going to look like, but as I was looking out of the window from the plane. I couldn’t help to notice the colorful houses and mountains above the skies. If you are obsessed with buildings and history like I do; Mexico is the best place to be! The landscape is a wonderland of blazing colors, art windows, bold graphics, big churches, plazas, and unexpected creative designs all around the city! Honestly, it’s so much different of what YOU see on Tv!
In case you didn’t know; Mexico City is one of the cities with the most museums in the world! Therefore, is the home to the most visited museum in the country such as the Museo Nacional de Antropología, which has one of the most important collections of pre-hispanic art. You’ll also find places dedicated to the rich history of Mexico, such as the Chapultepec Castle. Also, the Soumaya Museum located in Polanco and Frida Kahlo in Coayacan. These places were so magical and have the ability to transport YOU into a different era. So if you ever go to Mexico City; I highly recommend to visit at least 3 museums so you can experience a different era in your lifetime 🙂
Overall, CDMX is beautiful and sophisticated, filled with world-class museums, saturated with color, and greenery. Polanco, Roma, and Condesa are stunning locations to visit. Condesa is known to be the haven for dog lovers (yes, really) and young business types, while the edgier Roma is where you’ll find coffee shops and pricey hipster stores. Polanco is known for all the exclusive stores and restaurants. My favorite place is El Mercado de Roma because it reminds me so much of the Chelsea Market in NY. Bringing you a wide variety of cuisines from other places in the world. Keep in mind that most restaurants and places close early on Sundays and many aren’t open on Mondays.
Hope this gives you an idea of my wonderful experience in Mexico City and encourages you to visit this amazing country with the best hospitality you can imagine. The people are so kind and in the process, I made long-term friends. FYI I didn’t go so much in detail of specific locations because it will be too much for a one blog post. So stay tuned for a more detailed blog on a particular location.
