    Aside from being a very large park, its chock a block full of statues, monuments, and a great street food section at one end. Great place to sit down, relax, and watch the world go by.  more »

    It is a very good care, clean, Park with many trees and banks of ironwork to rest in the middle of a city walk. It is inspired by Parisian Park. and it is located behind the Museum of fine arts.

Where to stay in Mexico City

Head straight to the trendy neighborhoods of Roma or La Condesa if you're looking for an artsy atmosphere--you can find design-conscious hostels and boutique hotels nestled among the many bars, restaurants, cafes, and galleries. For easy access to the city's most beautiful architecture, you can't beat staying in the historical center, although the neighborhood's UNESCO-listing means you'll only find smaller, old-fashioned options there. You can also indulge in a few luxury nights in the fancy Polanco district, or look for a more budget-friendly option in the popular Zona Rosa.
