This was a fantastic experience, made even more memorable by the fact that I saw it in Chapultepec Castle. An unbeatable setting for a really beautiful performance. Would definitely suggest trying to go when it takes place in the castle.

The venue is fantastic and it is a truly memorable experience just to go to Bellas Artes to a performance. The theatre is simply amazing. The performance was very colorful and enjoyable, but a little too "tourist-friendly", not too much content, just joyous, energetic, colorful. Not much lyricism. The vast majority of the music was upbeat. The performance was a... More

The skill of the dancers is unbelievable. I expected it to be good, but not this good. The Ballet Folklórico takes you on a journey of a variety of Mexican dances and musical traditions. It's a real treat for both those whom have grown up along with them, and those whom have never seen them in their lives. A true... More

We had a wonderful experience and enjoyed every minute of each performance. Culture galore. If you appreciate folkloric troops, this us the one to see in a beautiful venue.

If you are in Mexico City and have time to see this, do it. The ballet shows in an hour and a half a beautiful representation of the country's history through their music and typical dances. Amazing presentation!

We saw the ballet Folkorico de Mexico here during their Sunday night performance. We toughly enjoyed the performance which displays dances from around regions of Mexico. An added benefit is to see the huge tiffany glass curtain in the performance hall of the Palacio de Bellas Artes.

Attending the Ballet Folklorico in the sumptuously beautiful Palacio de Bellas ARTES was simply a marvelous cultural experience, one if the highlights of our week long stay in Mexico City. One of the reviewers inexplicably commented that it wasn't really "ballet". It isn't...that's why it's called FOLKLORIC. The dancers were worked class as were the musicians. The performance was a...

Staying in Alameda

Neighborhood Profile
Alameda
This beautiful park was once the playground for the wealthiest families in the colonial era, and is now the perfect place where locals and visitors can spend a sunny weekend afternoon to relax or shop for souvenirs at the market. Kids can run around or grab a bite of cotton candy while teens and adults wander around admiring the charming gardens and the sculptures that adorn it. Once the heat rises, it may be time to visit one of the many cozy restaurants or cafés with its characteristic art nouveau facades to cool down and call it a day.
