A short trip to taco city? Are you coming for just a couple of days but you want to discover what the capital has to offer to you? Well, this mini guide is what you’re looking for. Ready? Let’s explore CDMX like a chilango!
Saturday of foodies, bikes and a castle
9:00 a.m. Imagine that you’re staying in one of our temporary homes in Roma Norte, and when you step out, you’d find the coolest stuff in the neighborhood. The famous park of Plaza Río de Janeiro, a bunch of libraries, cafés and design shops… oh, and lots of locals strolling with dogs enjoying the morning. Get ready your camera because the urban art around is worth it! Walk a couple of blocks to Belmondo (@belmondomx). Breakfast with mimosas? Here is possible.
12:00 p.m. Take a bike and ride to the next stop: Bosque de Chapultepec. With more than 810 hectares it’s a little bit tricky to decide what to do, but there are three must-sees according to locals: Lago Mayor, Cárcamo de Dolores (an impressive fountain with historic architecture), and the majestic Castillo de Chapultepec.
5:00 p.m. And now get ready for a culinary/sensorial experience at Elly’s (@ellysmx). Step into a great house from the 30s in La Juárez neighborhood, with a Bauhaus style like an art gallery, good music, food filled with memories, and a lot of organic wines.
8:00 p.m. Coffee, a glass of wine, or drinks? We have it all. If your plan is more chill with specialty coffee + the best pastries, go to Chiquitito Café (@chiquititocafe). But if what you have in mind is to enjoy the best of the wine world, the place is Wine Bar by CMB (@winebarcmb), which even has a library dedicated to Mexican wine. Anyone said drinks? In Casa Prunes (@casaprunes) everything is elegant and creative; from the cocktails to the architecture and the vibes.
Sunday of brunch, museums and tacos
12:00 p.m. Brunch time! And time to go to Lardo (@lardomexico) because on Sundays, breakfast is late, and here, they serve until 1:30 p.m. The must is the handmade bread and the fresh juices.
3:00 p.m. In the capital, every Sunday is for museums, and the best is there are 171 cultural spots with different themes to choose from. Classic and contemporary art, design and fashion, photography, history, and even a museum of chocolate or sciences. Our suggestion? Museo Nacional de Arte MUNAL (@munalmx), Museo Jumex (@museojumex) and Museo Nacional de Antropología (@mnantropologia).
7:00 p.m. Your travel would not be complete without good tacos. And just as there are endless museums, the taquerias in the city are also infinite, and these two take the applauses: Tacos Tony (@tacos_tony_oficial) in Narvarte neighborhood with their legendary suadero tacos, and Los Cocuyos (@tacoscocuyos) in Centro Histórico with tacos of all types. And when we say all-kinds it’s because they have pastor, surtida, campechano, longaniza, suadero, maciza, cabeza, lengua and sesos.
Now you’re ready to get an epic weekend in the CDMX. And if you’re looking for a temporary home that connects you with the most fascinating of the city, stay with us!
