Paseo de la Reforma, Mexico City

4.7
One of Mexico City's major thoroughfares, Paseo de la Reforma runs through the city's main financial and business districts, taking visitors from the downtown to the famed Chapultepec Park. Laid out in the 1860s and modeled after some of Europe's grandest boulevards, the avenue runs diagonally across the city and hosts some of Mexico's tallest buildings. Arguably the street's best-known feature is the so-called Angel of Independence, a tall column topped by a golden statue of the Winged Goddess of Victory. A convenient starting point for many tours, this monument depicts various heroes from Mexican history and houses tombs of several notable historical figures.

  • Emblem of the CDMX, located in one of the main avenues in the city, surrounded by numerous restaurants, cafes, shops and places of night entertainment, is silent witness of hundreds of marches, transit and life in the big city, has a viewpoint to observe the great pollution.

  • We stayed right of the Paseo which had everything from public art displays along the length of the road to a marathon on Sunday. The fountains are worth seeing during the day and at night.  more »
  • Very good care and excellent for taking photos in one of the main streets of the city of Mexico, you can also ride Sunday since the reform promenade becomes pedestrian

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.
