Mexico City, Mexico

Updated: Jul 15, 2020

Polanco neighborhood We stayed in Polanco, a trendy shopping district with plenty of stores and restaurants - located in close proximity to Boque de Chapultepec - one of the largest city parks in the Western Hemisphere.

Home to Chapultepec Castle, the National Museum of Anthropology, the Museum of Modern Art, many street vendors, performers, and much more. Everywhere you looked, a flower bloomed, or dogs splashed in the water features. Besides music drifting between the trees, the park remained quiet and vast - perfect for a slow walk in solitude.

We woke with the sun, walked through the park, and up the winding path to tour the castle grounds. I remember the quiet, and how bright and still everything was, while surrounded by skyscrapers on the other side of stained glass.

Mexico City was filled with kindness, greenery sleeping on concrete, and the best tortas and horchata I will ever have in my life. Catching an Uber was an easy and affordable way to navigate through a space brimming with shopping, history, and art. I wish I had more time, and would love to go back to continue exploring the many museums and cathedrals that we missed.

If you ever have a chance, I would encourage anyone to visit Mexico City. We spent hours stepping out of our hotel, taking a deep breath, and walking without navigation or a destination.
