1. Plaza Garibaldi

Plaza Garibaldi

Ciudad de México, Mexico

Plaza Garibaldi is where all the mariachis perform each night. There is a Tequila museum with a bar on top that offers drinks and a perfect view for people watching from above. Be prepared to pay around 50 pesos per song. #livemusic

2. Ballet Folklórico de México

Ballet Folklórico de México

Ciudad de México, Mexico

One of the most stunning cultural performances I’ve seen in all my travels! They perform in Palacio de Bellas Artes, but only on Wednesday and Sunday evenings. Each ensemble reflects traditions of the indigenous cultures in Mexico. Purchase a ticket on the main floor for a more interactive experience!

3. Museo Memoria y Tolerancia

Museo Memoria y Tolerancia

Ciudad de México, Mexico

One of the best museum experiences in Mexico City, even if focused on such a humbling topic. The exhibits take you from country to country around the world to explain in the detail the rise of intolerance and the effects of each scenario on society. The audio-guide is essential, expect to spend around two hours in the museum. #history

4. Fiebre de Malta

Fiebre de Malta

Ciudad de México, Mexico

Craft beer at its finest! The menu comes in the form of paint swatches with every detail you could ever imagine about each beer. Some of the beers are crafted by the team of Fiebre de Malta themselves. Cheers!

5. Churrería “El Moro”

Churrería “El Moro”

Ciudad de México, Mexico

The most amazing churros and hot chocolate you’ll find in Mexico City! #freshlymade

6. Pujol


Ciudad de México, Mexico

Pujol has been named one of the top 50 restaurants in the world. It is entirely Mexican cuisine, inspired from many different regions around the country. There is a documentary about Chef Enrique Olvera and his restaurant Pujol that I recommend watching before you go! #fine-dining

7. Soumaya Museum

Soumaya Museum

Ciudad de México, Mexico

Stunning architecture by Mexican architect Fernando Romero. It is a private, non-profit museum with a wide collection of art from pre-Hispanic Mesoamerica to a repertoire of works by European old masters. The museum is in Polanco, near a lot of bars, restaurants, and shopping, so at least take a walk by!

8. La Única

La Única

Ciudad de México, Mexico

A nice restaurant in Polanco, an upscale district in Mexico City. Order the “tuetano”, bone marrow. They’ll deliver it with the bone cut in half. Remove the bone marrow and eat it with a tortilla like a taco. Delicious!
