Where to Find the Romance Hidden in Mexico City
5 uber-romantic spots in this incredible city.
Desierto de los Leones
If you are looking for a break from the pace of the city, you don’t have to travel outside of the city limits to visit the serene and natural beauty of Desierto de los Leones National Park. While other tourists flock to Chapultepec Park, you and your love can take advantage of this less-crowded, but just-as-impressive gem. Stroll hand-in-hand through the miles of old oaks, firs and pines, or visit the grounds and museums of a monastery that dates back to the 1660s. Pack a lunch to have a romantic picnic, or buy a delicious traditional quesadilla to share from a stand near the monastery.
Bicycle Through the City
If you really want to see the heart of Mexico City, but are scared off by tales of busy traffic, wait until Sunday when half of the streets in the city close to car travel. Then, rent a pair of bicycles. This is the perfect way to take your time and really experience some of the city’s most colorful neighborhoods.
Tip: Let your friends know that you’ll be taking Uber wherever you go. This way you’ll be safe and there’ll be a record of where you went and the driver who took you there.
