This is a great place to walk around and get the feeling of the mexican culture, you can find so many souvenirs. And you can see how the folklore of the people is.

Aztec ruins, Colonial architecture, Museums, shops, The national palace, Diego Rivera Murals and paintings, great restaurants and taco stands (Some of the best!! ) Not to mention a huge selection of hotels in all price ranges. A person could easily spend days exploring and constantly find new things. Some of the neighborhoods surrounding the historical center are a bit sketchy... More

We walked through downtown centro historico, but it was being remodeled. The view was not great as I had seen it before. I expected more and bigger.

Museums and cool attractions galore. There's also a small market at Alameda Central where I bought some headbands I hadn't seen anywhere else.

The place is... More

I love the community. I definitely admired the architecture. There is so much variety in design. You have from 18th century colonial buildings, to the 1920-30 art deco, Spanish Moorish influences, to modern-day design. As you walk around, take a look at the random art sculptures along the city. My husband and I felt safe at all time. Typical, don't... More

Several of the main Centro Historico streets have been converted in peatonal streets, Now you can visit Mexico's downtown better than never. Its environment is now comparable to historic headquarters of European cities.
