See Mexico City with Penthouse El Cielo de Roma


Welcome to my personal guide to my favorite things in Mexico City. Note that it’s not exhaustive or complete.

Note that I have an apartment for rent to visitors. Above is the video. There are more photos at its AirBnb listing, where you could book, or you can contact me and reserve directly fee-free. To do so, or for more information, email me at the address at the bottom of the page.

Mexico City is a huge place, and so my recommendations are listed according to the geographic area.

If you only have an evening:

  • Make sure you stroll and eat in Roma (currently the hippest neighborhood and my home) or Condesa (previously the hippest neighborhood, leafier and full of art deco architecture)

If you only have a few hours during the day:

If you have more days, then (in this order of priority):

  • visit the unmissable Museum of Anthropology in Polanco,
  • add San Angel-Coyoacan,
  • more time in the Centro Historico
  • add more time in Polanco
  • dedicated Frida/Diego time at their various houses and studios, Anahuacalli, and the Dolores Olmedo museum
  • a day trip to the Teotihuacan pyramids

Even more time allows for visits to the Xochimilco floating gardens, the Cathedral of the Virgin of Guadalupe, a day trip to colonial Taxco or the larger colonial city of Puebla.
