Your guide to Mexico City

All About Mexico City

The vibrancy of Mexico City can be found everywhere you look — from the neighborhood food markets, to the candy-hued haciendas of Coyoacán, to the sugar skulls that decorate church altars alongside figures of Catholic saints. During its peak festival season in autumn, the whole country comes together in celebration of Day of the Dead and Mexico’s Independence Day. Boiling over with a youthful, creative spirit, Mexico City boasts a thriving contemporary art scene that rivals that of any other major capital, while simultaneously paying homage to its rich Mayan roots. But one of the best things to do here? Eat. Follow the wafting smell of slow-cooked pork and spices to the nearest street stall, or book a 14-course tasting menu at a celebrity chef-run restaurant. Just be sure to wash it down with a local beverage and a long walk through one of the city’s historic neighbourhoods.

The best time to stay in a vacation rental in Mexico City

Spring, between March and May, is a beautiful time to be in Mexico City. The weather is usually sunny and warm, with little likelihood of rain, and the blooming Jacaranda trees add an extra layer of charm to the city. Autumn is equally beautiful and warm during the day, though slightly cooler at night and in the early mornings. Summer is the hottest time of year, and also the rainy season. Still, it generally will only rain for a few hours in the late afternoon. With so many museums to visit, a few mandated hours inside is an easy trade-off for fewer crowds. Come during the Christmas season and, while it will be chiller and busier, you’ll be caught up in a frenzy of festivity, as the whole city celebrates Posadas with hanging poinsettias, piñatas, and traditional songs.

Top things to do in Mexico City

Mercado De Artesanías La Ciudadela

Mexico City is home to some of the most brilliant markets in the world, and La Ciudadela is one of the best the city has to offer. You’ll want to be sure to give yourself a good few hours here — the maze of market stalls spans four city blocks. Storefronts spill over with traditional Mexican artisan crafts and wares — textiles, ceramics, silver, stone-plated jewelry, loom-woven blouses, and entire shops dedicated to miniatures. Make sure you leave some room in your bag, because you’ll almost certainly be coming home with souvenirs.

Casa Barragan

The only single property to be listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, Casa Barragan is a marvel of contemporary architecture — and an extremely aesthetic place for a photo-op. It was conceived of and built by a well-known Mexican architect, whose legacy can be seen all around Mexico City. Today it houses an intimate museum showcasing his former studio and home. From the outside, it’s an austere building, with pops of sunny yellow, fuchsia, and oranges that peak out amongst stark minimalist whites. Tip: be sure to book well in advance as spaces are limited and sell out fast.

La Lagunilla

Every Sunday morning, antiques sellers bring their wares out to La Lagunilla, setting up a market that would make any mid-century modern design lover go weak in the knees. Having a good eye helps — it can take some time to seek out the treasures. From furniture to vintage clothing to trinkets, there is no shortage of unique and eye-catching pieces to be scooped up here (or simply admired as solid wood credenzas don’t tend to travel easily on planes).
