Things to do

Urban Greenery

Mexico City is dotted with green spaces. Get to know the city’s parks by visiting Parque España and Parque Querétaro while you walk around the Condesa neighborhood. The parks are adjacent so you can take your time to stroll between the two, people watch and grab a snack from street vendors. Over in Parque Mexico, check out the art deco sculptures.

Shopping

Shopping is a must while in Mexico City, whether you’re looking for a special new item for your wardrobe or souvenirs.

Carla Fernández is the name-sake boutique by the Mexican fashion designer,  just a 15 minute walk from Parque Mexico. Fernandez is one of the most celebrated designers in the city and is known for high-end ensembles that utilize Mexican techniques and textiles with Japanese lines.

Pop into the traditional Mexican market, Mercado de Artesanías La Ciudadela, to search for Mexican handcrafts and folk art.
