I loved walking thru here. I felt very secured. Many people were jogging or walking their beautiful dogs.

Perfect for quality shopping and eating in Mexico City. Shops, restaurants and hotels are all upper-scale, and it is one of the most expensive areas of the city. If you are after traditional stuff, this is not the place to go. But, if you want a taste of contemporary, upper-scale Mexico City, this area is one of your best choices.

The best restaurants in Mexico City are located in Polanco, The gastronomic offer is outstanding, and Masaryk Avenue is the equivalent to NY 5th. All designer boutiques are set in this neighborhood.

Great stores and restaurants all over, you can walk for a day and discover more and more eating places, museums, malls, parks and bars. Very upscale and high end oriented.

First time in Mexico City, and I understand this area is one of the nicest and safest in the city. The neighborhood is flanked by several museums within walking distance and several parks within. There are so many restaurants, bars, art galleries, and coffee shops around. I wish I would have had more time to explore.

Excellent restaurants, up-market shops and two modern shopping malls amongst the best I've visited. Felt very safe. Some stunning villas and architecture

Great part of the city for upscale restaurants, bars, malls, etc. We visited some of them and then walked (you can also use the tour-bus) to the Soumaya Museum. Best tacos al pastor in a restaurant called La Casa del Pastor. If you take the tour-bus it is very convenient to visit the area in a few hours.

I went with a friend who thought she was going to be seeing gorgeous historical streets. Nope. A watered down Beverly Hills. Not worth the trip.
