24 Hours in Mexico City

On our most recent trip to Mexico, we set out to visit with a few of our existing partners, and meet some new ones. Since most of our development team is centered in the Southern regions of Mexico, it’s a long way from our New York City offices. A stop-over in Mexico City is a necessity, and this time we were pleasantly surprised with what we found in such a short period of time. While we were only in CDMX for 24 hours, we loved that it’s a vibrant city full of impressive architecture, enticing museums, delectable food, and of course chic shopping. Here are some of our favorite stops, even for the quickest of trips to Mexico City.

Eat

Some of the best food we ate on our entire trip was in Mexico City. Our favorite meal was at Azul Condesa, a quaint restaurant in the beautiful Condesa neighborhood. Stop there for the most delicious corn tortillas, and enchiladas layered in complex flavors native to Mexican cuisine.

A short walk through the city park will lead you to an unforgettable dessert at the Churreria El Moro. No trip to CDMX is complete without a churro.

Marvel

The Museo Frida Kahlo is not to be missed, but be forewarned that you’ll need to book your tickets in advance or show up extra early for a chance to get in. Inside, you’ll get the opportunity to examine the work of Frida Kahlo closely, and enter the creative universe that was her home, known as the Blue House.

Shop

El Bazaar Sabado was where we headed for a look at the best handmade crafts coming out of Mexico. There we found stylish women’s clothing ready for the streets of NYC, Paris, or Milan, as well as gorgeous (and very real looking) paper flowers and delicate, handmade decorative pieces.

After you’ve filled up your shopping bags, pop into nearby Saks for some lively entertainment and colorful cocktails.
