Going to this area was one of our least memorable points of our Mexico City one-week trip. The only reason we went was to go on the Corona Brewery tour (Grupo Modelo Mexico located at Lago Alberto No. 156), which they cancelled upon arrival because we weren’t wearing steel-toed boots or dress shoes. Instead, we walked towards the shopping/tourist area.... More

Swanky swanky part of Mexico City! I have been here many times and walked around the neighborhood when going out with friends just a few weeks ago. Very nice for a walk. Some of the best restaurants in Mexico City including the famed Pujol ... many museums and lots of high-end shopping. A lot to do if you visit!

Polanco is a quiet and nice neighborhood close to the Chapultepec park. It is a rich area and has a lot of fancy stores. If you want to buy Gucci, Hermés or maybe a new Porsche, go to the street called President Masaryk and you'll find all you need. The area is nice for just walking around, and there's also... More

Very posh and upscale area of DF with quite some touristic landmarks -Antropology Museum to start with- but mostly plenty of greatest local bars and restaurants and nice parks to enjoy clement local weather. Worth spending couple of hours to stroll through streets of Polanco to admire beautiful end of century villas, restaurant to perfections and then getting some rest... More

This neighbourhood was the high end of Mexico City. This is where you will find the best restaurants and the most important offices in Mexico. Its safe but finding parking space is a true adventure. I recommend you coordinate a taxi service if you intend to visit this neighbourhood or take local transportation. The buses on Reforma near the Park... More

You really get what you Pay for here....nicest hotels(arguably) nicest shopping in quaint yet sophisticated neighborhood....the main shopping and world class brand name Main Street is undergoing another massive underground water and power refit which will absolutely result in better drainage, power and traffic flow. The people are welcoming, there's wonderful architecture everywhere...Classic Spanish colonial and super modern apartment and... More

I gather Polanco is the D.F.'s Beverly Hills. I found itvto be pretentious and over-priced. Did see some very cool cars, however and with the new Sims and Jumex museums open, I will return.

For the short time available to walk and see another area in Mexico, Polanco had all in one. Nice restaurants, ice cream, people, nature and malls. Juan Valdez is a good option for a nice coffee outdoors, also to sit down in the park to chat was really nice.

Polanco is an upscale part of Mexico City, not quite as posh as Santa Fe but more of a Cenral Park stroll feeling. It has great restaurants, shopping, the National Museum of Anthropology near by as well as the National Auditorium, some of the most well known hotel chains of 4+ Star hotels, park, a zoo and much more.
