Staying in Polanco was recommended to us by an Australian friend who spent her gap year in Mexico City. We could not have found a better place as our 'home base' for the 8 day visit. We stayed in an AirBnB in the Miyana Shopping and Residence Complex which is centrally located for all tourist destinations and extremely convenient because there are shops (groceries, salons, etc). We took Ubers EVERYWHERE which was fast, cheap and super convenient. The average Uber ride was about US$4 per trip. Far easier, safer and faster than taking public transportation. Other great neighbourhoods to stay and visit include La Condesa and Roma.

Polanco is one of the most popular and luxurious suburbs in México City. The architecture in this area is pretty unique because it combines a modern style with hints of california colonial style and most of the streets and avenues are named after characters of science and literature.
In Polanco you can find almost every activity you could think of, want to go shopping and eat delicious? Antara fashion haul, Palacio de Hierro and Avenida Presidente Masaryk have the most exclusives stores and restaurants where your experince will be great and memorable; you want to know more about Mexico and its history and art? You can visit the Soumaya Museum and
National Museum of Anthropology where you can find art and history which would make your trip more rich in culture; do you feel like having a calm afternoon surrounded by nature? You can find more than 10 parks in Polanco, all are family friendly, safe and with many pretty spaces.
Because Polanco is a really nice area, you don´t have to worry about walking alone in the night, in fact, most of the residents and tourists in this area use the local bike network or walk. This options can give you the opportunity of knowing Polanco in a better way and you will enjoy your stay better while while exercising a little bit because on average you will take around 5,000 steps a day!
If you are planning to visit Polanco, do not hesitate, it is a destination worth knowing and I assure you that you will fall in love with the place and want to return more times.

This is a neighborhood within the city housing fine dining, shopping, the Aquarium as well as several art museums. Its' walkability is good providing beautiful modern architecture along with some traditional structures. We went specifically to go to the Aquarium which wil be reviewed separately but stayed for the entire day as there was so much to do and see.

This place is a must. Take your time and walk all the streets around Lincoln park. Many great places to eat and drink. You can see mansions, sculptures, an aviary, Walmart, open roof malls, Playgrounds and so many trees!

A very elegant and eclectic residential area, where most of the Embassies are located. I have visited the Embassy of my country and took the opportunity to walk the elegant streets of Polanco, guarded and shaded by majestic pine trees and palm trees. Palacio de Hierro is close-by, high international cuisine restarurants and a general atmosphere to make one believe one was in Beverly Hills. I would definitely live here if I ever move to CDMX.

Nice upscale neighborhood! Restaurants and night life accessible easily. Also more upscale in price for restaurants. A bit further from downtown and historic center but ubers are relatively cheap in cdmx. Nice place to walk around.

We ended up in a hotel in this neighborhood - And altho it is not the "coolest" it certainly was super convenient for fine dining at the end of the day. Learning that traffic was so bad that it could easily take 40 min. to get to a dinner, it was nice to know that wonderful dining was just a 15 min. walk away. It is a fancy neighborhood and hence very safe. I tought a good choice. We did not do shopping or anything else. tho conveneint to the anthropology museum.

Just ending a 2 weeks stay in Mexico City. Very happy to have been opting for that neighborhood as a base. Very clean and safe environment, we have been walking out every night without any issue, a good variety of restaurants (a bit on the expensive side but not out of this world), loved the nice parks and you are in most circumstances at a 10 USD Uber ride from other interesting parts of the city (and Uber here is THE way to commute for tourists). Enjoy!

Step daughter’s wedding. Highly recommend the Hyatt Regency in Polanco/Mexico City . There are plenty of excellent restaurants with many offering patio dining. Very safe area within the City with plenty of treed streets and a large park similar to Central Park. Good access to transportation but would highly recommend taxis or Uber services unless you are fluent with Spanish.

Granted that this is an affluent area with high end apartments, hotels, shops and restaurants. It is also very clean, safe and quite nice. But other than the Soumaya Museum (which is great), not much interest for the general tourist.
