This trip was really a quick stroll through Mexico City because our short stay was not enough for us to enjoy the many wonders the city has to offer.
CDMX is a bustling city perfect for me since I consider myself a city girl. It has parks throughout the city such as el El Bosque de Chapultepec, similar to NYC’s Central Park, except Chapultepec has vendors selling my favorite Mexican snacks such as elote and homemade nieve de agua. (water based ice cream)
This trip marks my second stay in CDMX, but since this time I went with my friend I had the opportunity to explore more than I did on my first visit.
I hope to return to the Mexico City but to work and live there for a bit or forever. For now enjoy some of the photos I took during my travels.
We got lucky and stumbled across a vegan taco truck. So delicious and highly recommend. I can’t recall their full menu but they had good options.
After leaving Biblioteca Vasconcelos we heard a guy selling vegan tortas and burgers. At first we thought it was a joke, but after double checking that indeed it was vegan, I indulged in a torta. This torta was from falafel protein. Yes it was good, and he told me he usually sells in that area starting at 1 p.m. I did not get his name but get a tasty torta or burger after your Vasconcelos visit.
Don’t forget to also check out their outdoor park, pictured below.
Castillo y bosque de Chapultepec
Wear comfy shoes if you plan on visiting this gem because you will do a whole lot of walking. There are plenty of fun day activities to participate in. Walking through the park is free, but the Castillo has a charge. We got lucky and got in for free.
Zocalo y Barrio Chino
On this day, a Saturday we took the Turibus around town and walked trough some places such as El Zocalo, Barrio Chino and Paseo de la Reforma. We also visited the Monumento de la Revolución, where I fell coming down the stairs as we exited the building. Fortunately the fall resulted in no major scrapes or bruises.
Recommend this activity to a group of four or more, because you can all split the cost. It was only two of us, it was a fun experience but as lively as the ones I’ve seen on the social medias. Nonetheless, we still had fun I enjoyed the colorful scenery, but I think if the group is under four people I’d rather visit Teotihuacán.
Cafe Salon Cero y Museo Soumaya
On our last day full day we did some final exploring. We found a coffee spot that served cold brew and wandered in the exhibits of the Soumaya museum.
