  • We were forced to stop here by our tour guide. We did not get to go on campus, just in the parking lot.  more »
  • Its enormous expansion is related to the size of this country. Magnificent buildings and good cultural offer. It is advisable to go to one of the concerts of its Nezaualcoyotl room, splendid acoustics and great beauty.

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.
