¡Viva Mexico! September is known by the locals as “mes patrio” (patriotic month). We celebrate our independence from Spain with fiestas everywhere, but our stellar recommendation is to visit El Zócalo or Coyoacán on September 15th, the day where locals celebrate with chants, live music, fireworks, and of course, eating traditional food like tacos, pozole, chiles en nogada… and drinking mezcal or tequila. Don’t forget to try the delicious snacks: elotes and esquites!

From our Condesa apartments, you’ll arrive in 30 minutes tops!
