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. Just... More

There's no way to leave a three star review for Polanco without sounding like a snob, but here I go! I came here a few times during my weeklong stay in Mexico City, primarily to eat and shop. My friends and I did the Pujol thing at night, and I went back with my partner for a little stroll, and... More

It's a fancy neighborhood. A lot of restaurants and shops. On Saturdays there is a faire on the main square. It's a good place to stay when visiting the city.

My travels today to the Museo Soumaya gave me the opportunity as well to walk among the rich and probably not so famous. For the first time in all my trips to DF, I didn't feel as though I was in Mexico. Yikes! If you're homesick for southern California, Polanco is the place to hang out. If you take the... More

What an awesome neighborhood! This neighborhood is wonderful to stroll around. So many restaurants, shops, and cafes! The area right around Lincoln Park is particularly picturesque. Grab a coffee or ice cream and sit back for some entertaining people-watching. While it was fun to see the upscale shops, the narrow streets with their beautiful homes and picturesque parks were much... More

Polanco is a very clean and safe part of Mexico City for the most part. There are tons of clubs and lounges for the night owls and even more places to eat. Some of my favorites are Burritos, Serpico Lounge, Osaka, and Casa Habana. Additionally, there are some places to see like the various embassies, the cathedral, and some parks.... More
