“Safe and fun to roam”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

you can roam the Centro Historico without looking over your shoulder. Great history, architecture, museums and food, smells and sounds of Mexican culture, even at night,
pretty safe as such, but the traffic free streets with cafes and restaurants get old after
a couple of visits, best to walk up Juarez to Reforma and then towards the Angel

“New peatonal streets”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

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.

“Nice...during day time.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2014

Don't miss the Paseo....but be wise and program you visit during the day. It´s well guarded and you will have a better look of the architecture. Just don't go walking around with a map.
