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

this very safe area is fun to explore for shops, restaurants and beautiful people watching ... if you take a day off from all the museums and want to stroll, shop and hold hands, it makes for a beautiful day ...

We went to ride around Polanco, and it was just a beautiful very diverse neighborhood. Has all the stores that you can possibly imagine you will see at Rodeo Drive. From Boss to Louis Vuitton. Excellent little restaurants too. You will not regret a ride or walk through Presidente Masaryk Avenue. Amazing!

This is a lovely area and perfect for high end shopping. It is expensive though but is a very stylish place.

Sorry to be so harsh but my idea of a vacation is to visit a city for the first time and get a sense of what it's like to live there. To me Polanco was the Beverly Hills of Mexico City and it's just as exciting (NOT) as the real thing. Bustling with an air of self importance, the area... More

Escape from busy Mexico City traffic and skyscrapers, meander through green streets, sit outside for a coffee or lunch, people-watching, dog-walkers, families, yuppies, all together!

Polanco is a peaceful and safe quarter. I stayed there with my family for a week and we enjoyed many long walks across beautiful parks and green walkways, great food in Mexican restaurants, good grocery shopping and fashionable shopping malls. The neighborhood offers everything a tourist may desire.

This area appears to be the fanciest area (at least commercially) in the city. The main streets have American and European food chains and luxury retailers. Pro: easy to walk, clean and safe. Con: somewhat generic feel and all hotels and restaurants are very expensive. Good for a stroll, or a visit to Pujol. The local parks are lovely and... More
