Mexico City, Mexico

Mexico City, Mexico has a rough reputation especially if you have been in the States for a while. I am here to say that it is allllll rubbish. Mexico City also referred to as CDMX (Ciudad de México) is one of the largest cities in the world and has a population of almost 9 million people! This city is huge and so it was fitting to spend almost 2 weeks just in this city alone and I still didn’t even see everything.

I did however go right before Day of the dead (Dia de Los Muertos) and it was by far one of the best experiences of my life! I highly recommend everyone to go and experience this culturally and spiritually rich time of year. Go with an open mind, open heart and you will not be disappointed by the experiences.

Some things I highly recommend doing while there and I will share more photos in other posts about it but:

  1. Walk around the neighborhoods and take in all the street art! There is plenty to see. I never felt unsafe walking by myself even in the early morning or at night. Everyone is extremely nice and helpful.

  2. Go to the Folklore Museum. It is filled with colorful and beautiful art pieces that represent thousands of years of art history and culture here.

  3. Go to a Lucha Libre fight! It was such fun entertainment, you can buy your tickets there at the box office but if you look like a tourist they will sell you the good seats at a slightly higher price ($5-$10 more maybe). Its really cheap and totally worth sitting much closer to the action.

    *Note: They do not allow ANY professional looking cameras into the room so if you bring it you WILL have to give it to a coat check person and collect it afterwards with your ticket. This caused a huge amount of stress for me as my camera is my meal ticket but they took great care of it and returned it just fine.

  4. Go to a soccer match. I went to a Puma’s game and it was a blast. I bought the tickets online and it was incredibly hard to find the will call office so I recommend just buying your tickets there. Also keep in mind that soccer (football) has a passionate fan base so food and drinks get thrown and afterwards you might see a little police presence. Don’t freak out! They are just there as a precaution to keep the peace between the fans.

  5. Definitely Go to Frida Kahlo’s house, also known as the Blue House. I will have a completely separate post with plenty pictures of that.

  6. Do a food tour! EAT ALL THE THINGS!!! Mexico has more than just tacos and their food has so many complex layers. You think you know Mexican food but you don’t until you have eaten street food, (which is totally fine to eat) in Mexico City! I will also have more photos with another post on that entirely.

  7. Spend a whole day at Chapultepec. This park is huge and has a castle and a couple museums, a zoo, some street vendors and beautiful gardens. Take advantage of everything this place has to offer. You can ride bikes through it or just go on a walk but don’t miss this place.

  8. Special events! Mexico City is massive and there is always something happening. Everytime I turned around there was some crazy cool event, or concert or Something. Look it up before you go and plan away! When I was there it was during the festivities for Day of the Dead but they also had this awesome night bike ride event, I did not ride a bike but I got some awesome photos that I will also post later. Do a simple search and you will find there is always something cool happening in this big city.
