OUR FAVORITE SITES:
The Museo Soumaya is owned by the Carlos Slim Foundation and contains the extensive art, religious relics, historical documents, and coin collection of Carlos Slim and his late wife Soumaya, after whom the museum was named. A visit appreciate the exterior alone is well worth the drive.
Mercado de la Merced is an infinite maze of food, poultry, vegetables, fruits, candy and much more. You can quite literally get lost here all day.
Museo Nacional de Antropología – Mario said he wanted to go back to school to study Mexican history and anthropology following a visit to this treasure trove of historical artifacts.
It made Latin America’s 50 Best Restaurant List. It’s now on ours, too!
A must-go-to. Chef/Proprietor Enreique Olvera (also the brilliant founder of Mesamerica) creates the most delicious and luxurious experience in town.
Only open for lunch. Well worth the visit, if only for the fresh seafood and tuna tostada!
