Where to Find the Romance Hidden in Mexico City
A romantic getaway in Mexico. That phrase may be more likely to conjure visions of an all-inclusive resort on one of the country’s many serene beaches rather than a trip to the bustling capital; however, overlooking Mexico City for your next south-of-the-border get-away with that special someone would mean cutting off its multitude of vibrant, sensual and exciting experiences. Mexico City is known for its thriving arts scene, colorful architecture, modern dining and hip nightlife. These are reasons enough to put it high on your list of must-visit destinations.
Can’t-miss neighborhoods in Mexico City are:
- Condesa: Mexico City’s answer to New York’s West Village, with a large selection of shops and restaurants (and a fun antique fair) surrounding Parque México.
- Polanco: One of the city’s poshest districts, which has expanded north, and added “Nuevo Polanco”, has lots of galleries and shopping.
- Roma: Filled with Art Nouveau mansions, this area has been revived by hipsters, artists, and boutique owners.
For those looking for a trip filled with romance, though, Mexico City also offers many hidden gems that you won’t find in the guidebooks. The following ideas will make you and your sweetheart feel like residents of Mexico City.
