  • I was amazed with the place, unfortunately I could only see the lobby because it was Sunday, and was my last day in the city.

  • There is so much interesting history in this very building. And it's still an active post office to begin with. I would recommend!  more »
  • An area of extraordinary architecture is where you can see each of the construction details. The combination of Art Decó along with French-style architecture can be appreciated. Very well maintained

  • What a way to celebrate snail mail! The building is a marvel to behold, every bit from the inside out is gorgeous. It also doubles as a museum for mail services in Mexico and it's history with other temporary galeries.
  • A must see in Mexico! Amazing architecture. It IS a palace! Entrance is free (it's a post office after all) so don't miss it. A few exhibits inside.
  • Also known as " Correo Mayor" this main postal office is home to one of the most beautiful stair cases in the world. It is open to the public and one can take pictures of the beautiful metal work alongside the railings and the fully functional original elevator. Definitely a must see and best of all is free of charge!
  • A beautiful working post office. No more than 10-15 minutes.
  • Another amazing building to visit and take a look of the details all over. Enjoy Mexico and its architecture! And so important to preserve traditional mail! Write something inspiring and send it from there!

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.
