Fab experience day and night. We hit the market on the weekend -lots of great art and crafts. Also lots of quaint restaurants and cafes at every turn! Very safe but parking is slim - better off taking the bus, taxi or metro. At night the offer may hipster bars with live music - reasonable prices, friendly folks. I adored... More

The gigantic Mexico City is peppered with small jewels of neighbors which deserve its own time and place on your schedule to explore. Venture in plain looking store fronts and find yourselves surrended by beautiful objects and sometimes even a fountain within a sprawling courtyard. San Angel reminded us a bit of Monmatre, with its rich art and flair. You... More

The area surrounding San Jacinto is a beautiful colonial neighborhood. Their are great artisan goods for sale, and many booming restaurants. A good neighborhood to explore, particularly early, as it fills up throughout the day.

Beautiful, if not in my opinion the most beautiful part of Mexico City. Especially If you are Irish and read up about the san Patricios first

The place is excellent for a morning walk and to enjoy architecture, available museums, decoration items in interesting shops as well as street boots on saturday. After that, you can always enjoy great food in surrounding restaurants.

Definitely worth the effort. Our cab ride from the Centro Reforma was approximately 45 minutes. We had Margaritas in the courtyard of the San Angel Inn then walked across the street to the Diego Rivera house.

Great area with a village feel. Very upscale. Nice restaurants and a lovely arts park on weekends. Convenient enough to Diego and Frieda's house, Frieda's house, and Trotsky's museum. A day trip but a little out of the center.

Neighborhood Profile
San Angel
San Ángel is known for its artistic vibe and elegant details displayed throughout its streets, antique residences and haciendas where famous actors like Consuelo Velázquez, Capulina and other prominent families used to live and that have now been turned into beautiful galleries, cafés and restaurants. An array of cultural and artistic activities are organized in the neighborhood, but it is on Saturdays when the San Jacinto Plaza and surroundings really shine as artists gather to exhibit a variety of arts and crafts, from paintings to clothing.
