Great avenue, with historical and modern buildings, Nearly all big hotels are on this street and therefor quit safe to stroll around. On Sundays, like today it is closed for cars until 14,30 hours. so it becomes a paradise for runners bikers and skeelers, rent a bike a take a stroll

This avenue continues to be a wonderful strolling avenue. On Sundays the whole Reforma avenue is closed for bicyclist - from 8 till 1 pm. Imagine the possibilities...local government is increasing police in the streets particularly in this area.

Sundays are special for Paseo, you can walk and see lots of people doing the same. The are is very secure. There are a lot of stores and places you can sit to take a rest.

If you go by car, there is litte chance for you to stop aside and take a picture. Everybody will start honking at you. So there is no chance for it. Better choice will be to park you car in some of the ESTACIONAMIENTO PUBLICO and start walking. This is is a very long avenue, so be prepared to decide... More

I haven't walked through all of it, but I loved the walk I took in Paseo de la Reforma around the museum of anthropology and the Chapultepec area. It was a lovely Sunday walk with a lot of Mexican families strolling in this busy but quiet huge boulevard.

The Paseo de la Reforma is like a Parisian boulevard, in fact it was modeled after the Champs Elysee. On Sundays, it's a great walk or bicycle ride. However, the Mexico City "ecobici" program of rental bikes is not open to tourists. Our hotel lent us two bikes. Be sure not to miss the turn-off on Avenida Juarez to the... More

Paseo de la Reforma is one of the major roads going through Mexico City. It has a lot of roundabouts with famous and historic monuments like the Angel de Independencia. On Sundays, it's shut down to vehicle traffic and open for bicyclists, runners, skaters, walkers, etc. It's a great way to get some exercise, see the monuments up close and... More

We were on a street food tour (Eat Mexico) and really enjoyed walking around this neighborhood. Note the French influence in this part of the city due to Emperor Maximilian I's influence.
