    San Angel has several neighborhoods for walking. From San Jacinto to Chimalistac. They are beautiful almost could say safe even at night. An excellent choice for cute and free or nearly free parent is forced to review first the historical references that has many.

    Visit the new salon in the PORTAL SAN ANGEL square, is a spacious and beautiful lounge with a terrace for smokers. The service is excellent and the taste and quality of food is very good follow the standard of the chain. This place has the advantage that is not busy because it just opened and Sunday must not wait a long time for a table to eat.

    The neighborhood of San Angel is worth a visit, even if it is brief, as it was my case, sunset and after visiting the neighbouring district of Coyoacan. Houses this neighbourhood pretty squares and streets that are home to notable restaurants. Highly recommended to visit in the evening for a beer and sit to dine at one of the many restaurants.

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.
