    I only have time stopping to admire the mural mosaic work for short time. It was raining hard and I wish I stayed longer and admire the amazing work from the far distance closer!  more »

    That building is the only thing you can see from the outside because they do not let you go unless your student, in other words NO card portes

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.
