I have had great visits to Mexico City. Polanco is a great part of the city with unique buildings and parks. I prefer la Condesa but it is one of the best areas in the city.

The Polanco area is an elegant part of the city, with some of the best restaurants, hotels and shopping.Since I stayed at the JW Marriot, it was a perfect location to walk and feel safe.

The Polanco area has always been the elegant traditional neighborhood in Mexico City. You will find first class hotels, like the Nikko, JW Marriot and the Presidente. Also that's where the "Hard Rock Cafe" is located and it is always a fun place to have a drink. There are also very good restaurants in the area.

This is for me the place to stay on Mexico City, both as tourist and resident. Facing the park it is at walking distance to the Anthropological Museum and other major attractions and not far by taxi to the airport and other part of town. It has replaced the place to be decades ago which was the Zona Rosa, which... More

Polanco is one of México city's higher end neighborhoods with great eating and dining alternatives. Main attractions would be the road President Masaryk which is Mexico's equivalent of rodeo drive or fifth avenue. Here you can find high end shops and restaurants.

A very upscale part of Mexico City. Most of the foreign embassies can be found in the area, as well as luxury stores (Louis Vuitton, Carolina Herrera, Porsche, etc.) and many nice restaurants. If shopping is not your thing, a nice afternoon stroll through the streets (especially Masaryk and Homero streets) is worth your while. Very near Reforma, Chapultepec forest... More
