A LUXURY VACATION TO MEXICO CITY

One of the largest metropolises in the world, the Mexican Capital was built on the remains of Tenochtitlan, the sophisticated centre of the Aztec Empire.

This city is where ancient history and modernity converge.

Rough-hewn, cool and chaotic, Mexico City is home to one of the most exciting gastronomies on the planet. Foodies will need plenty of time to indulge in the array of fine cuisines being cooked up in the city’s top restaurants or classic taquerias.

Its art scene is equally as dynamic, ranging from ancient to cutting-edge contemporary. Whether visiting Diego Rivera’s lesser-known Museo Anahuacalli —showcasing his extensive pre-Hispanic collection, or diving into the buzzing contemporary scene at the Zona Maco art fair in February, our favourite spots in the city are worthy of even the most accomplished of art historians.

Exploring nearby Aztec ruins, Teotihuacan, is a must to see the imposing sun and moon temples. Visit Frida Kahlo’s eclectic home, Casa Azul, which houses a sensational art collection. And where to stay? We favour charming little guesthouses that promise peace and privacy away from the hustle and bustle of Mexico City’s busy street life.

TRAVELLING DEEPER

With our local know-how, hop between the capital’s most exciting art galleries, historical museums, sizzling street food markets and upscale boutiques. You’ll take in the city’s wonders and some of our best kept secrets.
