A metropolis with everything.
When Pope Francis visits Mexico City next month, he will attract the loyal in the country. Nevertheless, the Mexican capital is attracting other pilgrims: travelers seeking the world’s finest cuisine, travelers and forward-thinking design. The young people of Latin America and Spain are flowing into the city and the Mexican peso hit record falls against the dollar, the city – as dazzling and endless as it is – emits energy.
Certainly, there is no more exciting place to eat. Rediscovering Mexican cuisine at Pujol, Enrique Olvera subsequently inspired a generation of restaurants; Recent openings include Fonda Fina in La Roma and Fonda Mayora in Condesa .
Design fans can shop appetizing for designs designed by studios like David Pompa and Lagos del Mundo or by Carla Fernández . Photography enthusiasts have two new goals: FotoMuseo Cuatro Caminos and the newly renovated Centro de la Imagen .
But getting to know the city means diving into the colonies. Paseo de la Reforma in the shadow of the city’s grand boulevards of Colonia Cuauhtémoc, the new design conscious Carlota hotel and an increasing number of restaurants along with business travelers who are beckons and tourists . Many other areas demand a more intimate discovery. Wander through the French-style 19th-century La Roma mansions or stroll through the Parque México in Condesa.
