  • First thing to know is the best way (only if you have no car) is Uber, but be careful to plan the return because he is not mobile in the Park. Then, the Park is empty from Monday to Thursday, he n's really crowded on Sunday (only leave the average worker). There is no indication in the tracks, there are everywhere! This n is not marked. I am guided with the app Trail Fork (being a rider mtb) a chance that I had, the c! I did a 30 km in a little more than four hours, the grand tour. I have not seen pass the time, the forest, the views are spectacular! If you have the energy to go to the end, you will see same Mexico off. The air is pure and the sun hits, c is still high, ca goes up without rest. But have a jacket, c is cooler than in the city. A nice day to do! If you are lucky enough to have a MTB on hand, without hesitation, you can enjoy even more of this unique environment.

  • Beautiful mountain that gives you a clean air inside the CDMX with many routes and options to exercise in the open air... don't forget to go warm since it gets cold in the morning! Bicycle Running Trekking Yoga that you can think, is brilliant... and before you go please do not hesitate to eat nearby!

  • I went with the bike in the car. Arriving they marked the path to go mountain bike. It is not for novice riders. There is a Ranger that walk the path constantly. It is not very well marked... it suits them to print map and take water for the journey. It has a distance of 30 km and areas that reach up to 4000 m height. I went down to the convent and then gave a walk by the gastronomic area. You can picnic, it has many accessory pathways to traverse several hermitages built.

  • an excellent place to walk and relax, very close to the city, do not forget to eat typical sweets and try the food, be careful with your pets
  • Nonito lujar
  • Quite nice to get out of the city and visit not only the Convento, but the forest around it.
  • Serene setting. Still a lot of work to bring it back to its former glory but its really worth to stop by and explore this place! Beautiful gardens.
  • Good place, environment and tasty food

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.
