  • Unbelievable What a beautiful park in the heart of the city You can take pedalos on the lake So tranquil  more »
  • They say "life have to produce it to us, if not who," and it is true so I decided to organize a picnic with a friend in the forest of chapultepec, nothing made me more excited that get things ready for the day, from the moment that I went out and bought fabric pa RA tablecloth. A day earlier I did a pay of Apple, which is delicious to me. Come the day (Sunday) early prepared a baguette with ham, salami, manchego cheese, pear, topped with a sauce of Chile Morita with BlackBerry. To drink I made clericot (drink made from red wine and fruit). I kept things in a big bag of fabric, I walked to the subway (line 7, orange) I got off at the station Auditorium, was there to see me with my friend, went out and walked on reform towards the Museum of anthropology. While there we got to the forest, where it is a part of the Lake and look for the best place to place the tablecloth and remove things, and indeed so it was. Was a picnic very father, surrounded by trees, grass Lake, and clear of people who, like us, were having a picnic. I recommend making widely followed this type of activity, indeed it is to get out of the rut, you are filled with energy, you're happy, you enjoy city, the company or the loneliness, that is to enjoy, but above all is living life!

  • It is a wonderful restaurant, in quality of food, wines and excellent service. A beautiful view of the Lake. For almost 20 years I frequent it and its quality is still great.

  • Nice place to go with family, must consider that it is not the cleanest place but if one of the busiest in the city of Mexico

  • You can ride a boat and spend a pleasant evening. This dirty, ergo, there is algae, ergo, this green water, not cleaned and caregivers in their ignorance they say so it must be "because the animals that live there as well should be". The boats also need maintenance and cleanliness

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.
