I’m all done with my Mexico City blog posts and it was so nice to relive the trip through these posts. I wrote about the amazing food, what it was like visiting this massive city for the first time, where to stay, all the best places to shop and all the interesting things to see and do. This little post rounds up all my Mexico City posts in one quick and easy location for your convenience!
In March I visited Mexico for the first time to eat all the food and see all the art. I’m not a beach/resort person so we visited Mexico City. It was an amazing experience exploring this massive, crazy city. There are so many district areas/neighbourhoods to explore and in 5 days we saw so much of the city and ate so much amazing food.
The Museo Casa Estudio Diego Rivera y Frida Kahlo was the home of the two famed Mexican artists in the southern San Ángel neighbourhood of Mexico City. The striking modern house, not far from Kahlo’s family home was built by Mexican architect and painter Juan O’Gorman. The house was a joint design project between the three artists, O’Gorman even had his own separate section of the house. The house is unique, not just in its modern design but also because it was divided into different buildings to allow each artist to have their own private area and studio but still be connected to each other. Rivera and Kahlo’s part of the home is connected by a rooftop bridge that is visually reflective of their relationship. The couple only lived in the house from 1934-1940.
During our trip to Mexico City in March we decided to stay at Chaya B&B Boutique in the city’s historic centre. The hotel is located on the roof of a beautifully restored art deco building on a pedestrian street, bordering the Alameda Central park. We enjoyed our stay here at the beautiful hotel with a delicious breakfast every morning, but we did have a few minor issues.
Masala y Maíz in Mexico City’s Juarez neighbourhood was the perfect brunch spot when we visited back in March. Our hotel included breakfast but I wanted to try one of Mexico City’s amazing brunch places while we were there. Masala y Maíz explores the culinary traditions of South Asian, East African and Mexico.
