We planned a quick stop 2 day stop at Mexico City, as part of a longer trip we took to Puerto Vallarta. After spending the couple of days in Mexico City, we tried everything we could to change our flights so we could spend more time there. We fell in love with the architecture, food, culture, art- pretty much everything. Mexico City isn’t very touristy- which is a plus in our eyes. There is a booming restaurant scene, and there wasn’t a place where the food didn’t blow our minds. Here are some snapshots of our experience:
Shortly after arriving, we caught a public bus from Mexico City to Teotihuacan, an ancient city located about 45 minutes away. Aside from seeing the breathtaking pyraminds, (the Pyramid of the Sun is one of the largest in the world!) you will be able to learn about the history of this majestic place. Thank goodness we dressed fairly comfortably because the hike up the pyramids was no joke.
We enjoyed lunch at Restaurante Gran Teocalli, which offered great views of the pyramids.
The following day, we hopped on the subway and headed to Coyoacan to visit Frida Kahlo’s home. Frida is basically my spirit mother, so I had to make this a stop during this trip. Coyoacan is a vibrant neighborhood, with shops, great food, and other museums. After visiting La Casa Azul, we took a stroll through the neighborhood before heading out.

La Condesa (where we stayed) and Roma are trendy neighborhoods with cool shops, restaurants, and nightlife. We were able to see the most beautiful buildings and homes, and stopped by a few places to experience food, drinks, and music. Although we don’t recall the exact names of the spots we checked out in these neighborhoods, they are definitely worth a visit.
