A Travel Guide for your Seven Senses
To celebrate Fall, I’m delighted to share the latest Seven Senses travel guide. Every season, I publish a new destination, with 7 recommendations for each of your senses.
This time, I’m taking you to one of my favorite cities: Mexico City.
I’ve gone twice in the past 18 months and can’t wait to return. It’s a place I could visit a thousand times and there would still be more to discover.
As with most of my trips, my first trip to Mexico City was prompted by a visit to a friend. I’m grateful to Kristine, founder of Paz Home, who hosted me in her beautiful home in Condesa, and took me to some of her favorite places. Most recommendations on this list were inspired by her exquisite taste.
In recent years, CDMX (Ciudad de México) has become a booming tourist destination. It’s also become an attractive living hub for many young remote-workers, flocking from cosmopolitan centers around the US. And for good reason: the architecture is stunning, the food is incredible, and there’s a rich history and unique blend of cultures.
The first word that comes to mind when I think of Mexico City is alive. The city is bursting with overgrown trees; houses painted bright blue or pale pink; melodies traveling from cart vendors; the scent of cooked onions, tortillas, and fresh limes. The presence of craft, cuisine, and music imbues every space and city nook.
Fall is one of the best times to go, as the heat subsides and the mosquitoes resign. The end of October also marks one of the most significant Mexican holidays – Day of the Dead – with skeleton decorations, specialty foods and marigolds everywhere.
If you visit Mexico City, I hope the following guide will help you experience the richness and magic of this city. Here are 7 sights, 7 sounds, 7 smells, 7 tastes, 7 touch, 7 ways to balance, and 7 images to help you envision your adventure.
