This is a cute neighbourhood in Mexico City. It's an upscale neighbourhood with a great mall (Antara) and a beautiful park (Lincoln Park) with ponds. I recommend visiting this neighbourhood to get another aspect of the city, one that you wouldn't see anywhere else.

This is a chick neiborhood with many restaurants and cafes. One of the best places to walk and have a good time is the area of Lincoln Park. You have many of the best restaurants , bars and cafes in a walking distance around this great park. You need to go there.

Day time in Polanco is a very up scale part of Mexico City, with very high end stores like Cartier, Gucci, Etc. Way too expensive for 99% of locals. But taking a Segway bike around Polanco at night is wonderful. Very lit up with coloured lights and wide sidewalks and parks.

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
