JS Travel Guide: Mexico City
Mexico City is a foodie and art enthusiast must- see!
My husband was recently shooting a TV show down there and I had the opportunity to visit for a weekend and explore this dynamic city.
The first question most people ask is if it is safe. I can honestly say that I never felt threatened throughout my entire stay. We roamed the city on foot and on bikes and never encountered any sort of hostility. My one tip would just to take Uber instead of taxi’s. That digital footprint adds an extra level of security.
Where to Stay
Since my husband was working, his production put us up in The Four Seasons. It was gorgeous! A real treasure with beautiful grounds in the middle of a bustling city.
Where to Eat
Lalo! For breakfast was delicious! A great place to grab brunch and a fresh squeezed juice from the juice bar.
La Unica in Polanco is the perfect place to grab some tapas and enjoy a cocktail. The upstairs terrace has lively music and a super chill ambiance.
Huset was so dreamy for dinner! With twinkling café lights above head and dirt ground below, you forget that you are in the middle of a big city!
Condesa DF has a rooftop bar and restaurant with views of the city! We went in the late afternoon and found ourselves a cozy mattress to relax on and enjoy the sunset.
What to Do
Mexico City is known for its art and museums. There are so many incredible places to visit. I was only there for a weekend so I didn’t get to visit as many as I would have liked but the Frida Kahlo museum was a MUST on my list.
Frida Kahlo Museum, also known as the Blue House, is the home that Frida grew up in. With tons of her original work displayed, it was an intimate look at the life that she lived.
El Bazaar Sabado is flea market open to the public on Saturdays with a large variety of Mexican handicrafts and artisanal jewelry. It is a bit of a drive to get there but so worth it if you are into that sort of thing.
There are so many cute and unique shops around the city. While Polanco is known for having an array of high end shops, I prefer to shop the specialty boutiques that offer a variety of local and international designers. I loved this store 180 Shop.
El luche Libre. For a full Mexican experience, Luche Libre is an exciting, fun wrestling show.
Finally, to shop the latest and greatest Jessica Simpson footwear, check out our selection at El Palacio de Hierro!
