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.

Felt safe walking around in a very busy area. Was told that the zona was called Rosa = Pink. This because it is a mixture of white & red. Not pure white = holier than thou. Or shocking red = such unmentionable naughtiness. (And/or the colour of the buildings, many of which are pink.) Whatever .......... Bottom line it is... More

The Zona Rosa is not what it used to be. There are still some nice resturants on Calle Estocolmo and Genova near to Paseo de Reforma but the place is pretty seedy now compared to what it used to be. Calle Amberes is the center of gay life there now. If you are gay this is THE part of Mexico... More

Royal Club, Genova, Mexico City in the Zona Rosa is owned by the Mexican Mafia. The lure you in saying "no cover" and there is no way of leaving for less than $400 USD. This is the same group who killed Malcom X's grandson. Google it. Scary place.

A place where modern culture meets influences of the past. Favourite for those, who choose to experience nightlife of the city. Beautiful architecture from past centuries surrounded by not so pleasant quasi modern buildings.
