  • A site with a very special charm, good dining options and art galleries for lovers. Very close to public transport. Activities for the day.

  • It's a nice walk to make. We went by taxi and not spend more than $60 Mexican pesos from Zona Rosa there. There is a square with a giant exhibition of paintings by local artists that are very nice. Then, there is a ride by local drinks and typical handicrafts, are very good. We buy mezcal and tequila at good price. Careful because there are many people, it's full of pickpockets! We witnessed a theft from a person who was there, Mexican who had taken when he went to pay his wallet of the portfolio.

  • Although it's mostly a residential neighborhood, it has shops and restaurants mainly around San Jacinto Square. I love the greenery in all it's streets and the really old houses with cobbled streets.  more »
