  • Walking through the UNAM is an irresistible ride. The University breathes art, there are sculptures and beautiful things to see everywhere.

  • I like to go on weekends to walk with my dog, passing through the areas alternate, admire the buildings that combine modern with this conservative buildings designated by the Chair. I recommend you take a table, a couple of chairs, a book, a baguette, a drink (coffee pot) and planted in a garden early so while walking your pet, you lean and have breakfast outdoors.

  • A space of culture, innovation and a point of reference in terms of education in Mexico. It is worth a ride by CU

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.
