Polanco is the finest and more diverse commercial district in Mexico, with a wide variety of stores (walk by Mazarik avenue), and restaurants (visit Polanquito). Close to Chapultepec park and to a wide variety of museums and theaters.

We walked the Polanco district for 6 days. A very nice place to live and shop and eat.. Upscale stores etc. The Polanco has the great shopping center as shown in the photo, the vertical triangular building with a tower, Chapultepec park, and several good hotels.

From Plaza Carso - that grand and ever-growing homage to the wealth and influence of Carlos Slim - to Liverpool department store, you can walk down Mazaryk or Horacio and get two very different flavors of one of the high-roller zones of this great city. Like shopping the high-end brands? You'll find them all, the... More

If you have a free wekeend on a business trip and want to spend a few hours walking around, Polanco is your area. There you'll find the Anthropoly Museum,the castle, the park, etc. you have restaurants, malls, etc all close by. It is a safe and beautiful area.
