Mexico City is the 4th largest city in the world, so obviously it can be daunting to decide which neighborhoods to visit. NomadList is a great resource for us because we can talk to people that live in (or have visited) the countries and cities we’re interested in and get advice on where to go. Where else do I find good places to go? Google is an obviously amazing tool. I look up free or inexpensive museums, new and interesting structures or touristy areas to see, and great but low-budget restaurants to visit. Once I find something that looks good, I see where else in that area we can visit.
Roma, Condesa, and Polanco are more of the modern to upscale neighborhoods that we spent time in. You could say that Roma and Condesa are more for hipsters, and Polanco is more for people with money (and those of us that like to see pretty stuff). The neighborhoods all have gorgeous architecture, amazing restaurants and cafés, and are great for people watching from the many plazas and parks.

Can you spot the pig?
She made my day!
This little beauty was climbing a tree after a squirrel when we saw her, then she let me give her some pets! She was so sweet.

Looking for an insanely fancy mall with only luxury brands? This is your place!
Our favorite bakery, Esperanza. You can get so much delicious stuff for such a small price!
Antara Mall – We hung out there twice with our laptops because it’s so beautiful and the food court is actually really peaceful in the morning.
