Visual Diary: Mexico City

I am often asked about my favorite places in the world, and nary a conversation occurs where I don’t mention my beloved Mexico, next to Spain, specifically Madrid. The culture and food, the people, and the varied landscapes make it a favored destination of mine year after year. I might be slightly biased since it’s the motherland of my parents. I grew up vacationing many times out of the year in beachy areas around Mexico. Many places I had visited as a child were desolate beach towns without the crowds of tourists like Rosarito and Cabo in Baja California to Sayulita and Playa del Carment to even places that were popular in the 80’s like Acapulco, Puerto Vallarta, Cancun, and Manzanillo.

Yet of all the spots, Mexico City was one I had yet to visit until recently. CDMX is one I have never had the pleasure of knowing. Perhaps, like my assumption prior to visiting Madrid, being the capital, I pushed it to aside.

I’m sharing with you my visual diary of CDMX of the week-long of frolicking around, eating amazing meals, and visiting some of the famous sights like Xochimilco, Coyoacán, Frida Kahlo Museum, walking around the historic downtown, and the National Museum of Anthropology—the world’s most impressive collections of artifacts from pre-Columbian Maya civilizations through Spanish colonization. After visiting, I’m now wondering what took me so long and daydream of returning back someone, soon.

Con mucho amor,
