Travel: 5 Days in Mexico City

5 Days in Mexico City

5 days in Mexico City – from food to sights, and even Lucha Libre, Mexico City is one amazing place to visit. Check out some of the specific blog posts below and check out some of our favourite memories. Okay, let’s take a peek at some photos!

We visited Mexico City from October 27 to November 4, yet the first 4 days we spent watching the Mexico City Grand Prix, so we didn’t get to see the city until Monday, October 31. The fascinating thing is that we visited during Day of the Dead – the culture is so powerful.

Where to Eat

Above you’ll find some great places to stay, so many things to do, and some wonderful places to eat. Now, for a few of our highlights – photo time!

Lucha Libre is one event you won’t want to miss – even if you’re not into wresting (I’m not) it’s worth just the experience, watching the crowd and feeling the energy.

If you’re into museums and art, then for sure check out the Museo Jumex and Museo Soumaya – they’re both free and right next door to each other. Plus, then you can take in some elegant shopping in the posh neighbourhood!

Looking for some great eats? There’s one taco place we visited a handful of times – so good, quite cheap, and excellent 90s music videos playing on the TV.

Looking for some higher end dinners? Quintonil is one of the world’s bests, but also check out Rosa Negra and Raiz – both are in the Planco neighbourhood and well worth it.

Well, there you have it – a list of all the things we did when visiting Mexico City for 5 days!

Our method is usually 2-3 events per day (so a museum and the zoo, or a long course dinner out and an art gallery) with one nice meal and then two quicker or less fussy (yet still good!) meals. It works well, giving us some downtime and time to check out parks, walk and enjoy the neighbourhoods and sights.
