Plenty of small restaurants, bars, and also some shops selling items I would not allow my kids to see. This area is "Zona Rosa" due to the large number of LGBT inhabitants. Otherwise, the area consists of restored buildings and is a pleasant walk when passing through.

There is an outstanding demonstration of the liberality of D.F. on display in this small neighborhood. Many men, hand in hand, fill the area benches, sidewalks, and plaza at all times of day and night. The nightlife seems to cater itself to a more mainstream gay crowd, which doesn't bother me, but I didn't see much diversity while I was... More

Except for the gays; there are hundreds of men making out with their partners in the street. Restaurants are plentiful and reasonable. Visited during the day and felt safe the entire time. I would recommend spending your time in the central historic district (Zocolo), especially if you are visiting with family.

This use to be a great area to visit 15+ years ago. Nowadays it's best to walk with people who know the area. Leave all valuables behind, that includes watches and any kind of necklace. I have not stopped by this area in a long time and did so, to my surprise, I won't back here. There are other areas... More

I stayed in the Zona Rosa area because a friend had told me it was a safe area of Mexico City. He did inform me it was highly populated with gay's being that I'm straight I guess,lol. Well needless to say there are many gay's in the area but nothing what he explained. I felt very safe in the evening... More

In the last few years the Zona rosa in Mexico city as evolved as one of the great gay downtown area of the world. You can stroll hand in hand with your partner, even kiss on the street and no body cares !! Sure you should not do this elsewhere in Mexico, but it's great to know there an area... More

La Zona Rosa was ok and offered some good food choices close to our hotel. It was mainly a clubbing area and about as clean. The pedestrian passages would be quite charming if they were cleaner and didn't have such a party neighborhood vibe. Probably would have been fine with me if I was still in my partying daze. There...

Wonderful to walk around, but be aware, the museums are closed on Mondays! The architecture is varied and amazing. The gardens are lovely.
