San Angel is a quaint oasis inside CDMX. We went to the Saturday art market and enjoyed our time seeing the variety of art, talking to the artists and walking around the town square. We hope to be back to attend the art market again.

Love the cobble stone streets, the market, the restaurants, people watching and of course the Frida Khalo house. My favorite restaurant there is called San Angel Inn, a former residence.

Must See for the Saturday market! Lots and lots of artwork, as well as other crafts. It will be very crowded, especially in the covered side area.

Do it in a Saturday, because you will find the whole market open to the public. The two plazas, the gardens, the art, the streets. Everything here deserve the walk.
