Would have likely skipped the the Ballet Folkloric de Mexico, had a friend not highly recommend it to me--so glad we didn't! Truly a "must-see" when visiting Mexico City--and not what you expect when you hear "ballet." A high-energy performance, featuring colorful and beautiful clothing of Mexico. We saw it at the Castillo de Chapultepec--a nice venue, but performance was... More

During our week long visit we very much wanted to see a performance in the Palacio de Bellas Artes. It was only on the day that we visited the Palacio for the murals and decorative delights that we saw that Ballet Folklorico de Mexico were performing there that evening. We immediately bought tickets. We weren't disappointed. We arrived with some... More

First the website is super tricky: doesn't adapt to your phone format (so here we are, having incomplete information because it is hidden out of the phone zone, bravo), doesn't tell you how much it costs!!! (Who does that?), then confuses you if the event takes place in the Bellas Artes or in the Castle of Chapultepec and how/when you... More

I was expecting a traditional ballet - which this is not, but it's so much more. Absolutely wonderful production with around 10 different Mexican dances. It is a pure visual delight and not to be missed. My friends and I bought a tickets on the day for M$270. We were meant to be up in the gods but the performance... More

This attraction is best to see at night time when the lights sparkle or when there's an event, during the day I would recommend to go to Torre Latino Americana to get the full view of the palace.

The performance was very entertaining. And the sight lines are perfect, even from the balcony. It's worth visiting just to see the interior of the auditorium.

I saw their show in November 2015. The dancers are very good, and dances are varied and colorful. All in all it is a lovely show that covers many styles from different regions in Mexico. To top it all, the Palacio the Bellas Artes is a stunning building. Just the glass curtain of the stage makes it worth a visit.... More

If you like folklore and love music you must see it. Consider one of the great folklore shows you will enjoy it from beginning to end and will wan more. Held at the Bellas Artes Palace the building itself is incredibly beautiful as seen for the outside and breathless from the inside. The dome which you see on the outside... More

Staying in Alameda

Neighborhood Profile
Alameda
This beautiful park was once the playground for the wealthiest families in the colonial era, and is now the perfect place where locals and visitors can spend a sunny weekend afternoon to relax or shop for souvenirs at the market. Kids can run around or grab a bite of cotton candy while teens and adults wander around admiring the charming gardens and the sculptures that adorn it. Once the heat rises, it may be time to visit one of the many cozy restaurants or cafés with its characteristic art nouveau facades to cool down and call it a day.
