Mix Business with Leisure in Mexico City

When you think of a vacation in Mexico, Cabo, Tulum and Cancún likely come to mind. Put the nation’s capital, Mexico City, on your list.

The history and culture are rich. Make your way to Metropolitan Cathedral, Templo Mayor and Chapultepec Castle as well as museums such as Frida Kahlo House and Diego Rivera Mural Museum. Soak up more culture at theaters, art galleries and through the street art.

There’s awesome greenery, too, at Bosque de Chapultepec with its 1,600 acres of parkland, pond with rowboats, zoo and more. You can’t go home without spending time in Teotihuacán, one of the oldest and most significant archaeological sites in all of Mexico with its ancient pyramids. It’s worth the nearly one-hour drive from the city.

Mexico City is also beloved for its thriving culinary scene and nightlife. In the popular Roma Norte neighborhood you’ll find favorites like Madre Café for brunch; Rosetta for standout Italian; Contramar, noted for its seafood; hipster joints like El Parnita for great tacos; and Balmori Roofbar, a must for tapas. You can get gastro guidance on a food tour with Eat Like a Local Mexico City that focuses on street food and markets like La Merced Market.

If you’re in the mood for high-end retail therapy, Avenida Presidente Masaryk awaits. Think glitz and glam like Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills.

When you’re ready for a night on the town, make one of your stops Hanky Panky, a speakeasy abuzz as the first Latin American bar to receive Michter’s Art of Hospitality Award from this year’s World’s 50 Best Bars Academy. At newly opened Nardo Cocktail Club inside Hotel Umbral, not only can you sip an individually crafted cocktail, but you can peruse an art gallery, too. Other popular spots include Xaman, Loup and Tokyo Music Bar.

For the LGBTQ+ crowd, Mexico City doesn’t disappoint, from Tom’s Leather Bar, where daring and bold rocks the house, to Baby, a lively bar with plenty of room for dancing to Top 40 music. Also check out Kinky Bar and Divina, with its electropop and reggaeton (a fusion of Latin rhythms, dancehall, hip-hop or rap) … and many more than you’ll have time to hit.

While you may be in Mexico City on business, you can seamlessly mix business with pleasure — ¡que te diviertas!

Elk Cove Inn & Spa Review

Mendocino County is a self-contained universe of effortless, California-centric joy enveloped within the Redwood Forest National and State Parks, the rocky Pacific Coast and several prime wine production areas like Anderson Valley. If Highway 1 and Route 128 are the ribbons holding this package together, Elk Cove Inn & Spa can be considered the bow. Mendocino Coast’s first vacation destination, established in 1968, is an ideal 16-room gateway to the destination.
