San Angel is the perfect place to stroll around, enjoy the local food and cafes that are around the streets and just have a lovely relaxing time in one of the old neighbourhood's of Mexico. You can enjoy the colonial architecture of the houses and churches. There are many restaurants with typical Mexican food, and many little coffee shops where... More

This is a place where you must stroll and linger to enjoy. Bring comfortable but stylish walking shoes, however. Unless you're accustomed to it, the cobblestone streets and uneven small sidewalks will challenge experienced urban explorers. I find this area quaint with its Saturday market, choices of boutique shops and artisans and craftsmen in and around the park.

This was my first trip to Mexico City. My hesitation in coming here before was fueled by every stereotype that Americans, most of whom have never been here, have unfairly placed on this city. But I finally took the leap given my love for history, culture, art and architecture--all of which Mexico City has in spades. As one might anticipate,... More

We wanted to visit Bazar Sabado in San Angel but once we arrived, it was absolutely dissapointing due to excessive crowds and vehicular traffic.Also, the type of crafts that was being sold outdoors was mediocre and did not compare to the ones we had purchased on a previous trip to Mexico at other markets.The art show is set up at...

Visit Bazaar Sábado or else stroll around the town during the week. Easy to reach. San Angelin Inn and Sak's have wonderful menus, wine and offer fair prices.

Take the Metro to Miguel Angel de Quevedo. Walk west until you see Av de la Paz. Turn left on La Paz until you get to the first little plaza where all the art work is displayed for the Saturday Bazaar. The next larger plaza displays arts and crafts. Then follow Amargura and Juarez to admire all the beautiful old... More

Luckily we decided to go there on a Saturday, only to realize that its the only day its there. Although the area with beautifully cobble-stoned streets is there always but the charm of walking between lanes of artists selling and painting amazing works is something totally different. Definitely recommended for anyone interested to see a different side to Mexico City.
