The Alameda is a good place for a walk in the 21st Century, just as it was in the 19th. Superb people watching, ample benches, and I think that the Benito Juarez monument has been cleaned.

What a delightful, well cared-for and appreciated monument to Benito Juarez, who became president of the nation, who once said: "Il deseo de saber y de ilustrarse es innato en el corazon del hombre!" Perfecto!

As you walk around the main park after visiting the Belles Artes building you will pass right by this monument. At times there are entertainers doing tricks or showing off juggling or break dancing. Interesting place to take a few moments and review some history...More

There is something for everyone. Museums, art, attractions and it is cooler than the rest of the city because of the trees.

Every time I come to this park I like it better than I did before. It is much, much cleaner than it used to be, and my perception is that are fewer vendors than in years past. Looking forward to seeing it next month!

How good is public transportation ? (3 Replies)
Read several posts about terrible traffic. If i stay in the vicinity of "Torre Latino, Alameda Central and Palacio de Bellas Artes " will i be able to get to other tourist attractions by public transport ?

The traffic is not bad - certainly not as bad as New York. The subway system is good and only costs 3 pesos (I think) or around 25 US cents to go anywhere. There is also a MetroBus system that uses dedicated bus lanes to avoid traffic. If all else fails cabs are easy to find and you shouldn't pay more than 50 pesos (4 USD) to get virtually anywhere in the central tourist areas.

All your suggestions are in a relatively compact area (easily walking distance). I would say #1 is a bit better - this would probably be the area behind the US Embassy and Bolsa, which is nice and near a park that has an art garden on Sunday. #2 and #3 are closer to Centro / in Centro which is not always the best part of town at nght when it closes up and areas near Chinatown are not nice. #4 could be near Bellas Artes or it could be right at the Monumento de la Revolución.
