There are many things to do in the Polanco District such as visiting the Auditorio National. There was a Bentley dealership right across from the W Hotel, which is also why the Polanco District is also known as the Mexican Beverly Hills. You can also do some high end shopping at the famous Presidente Masaryk street.
La Lagunilla Neighborhood
On Sunday, there is a huge flea market surrounding the La Lagunilla Mercado area. You can find cheap wares from household goods to small electronics. Be sure to haggle with the street vendors since you will get the tourist price if you don’t speak Spanish.
Zona Rosa Neighborhood
There is a shopping center called Reforma 222 as well as many sights to see on Avenida Paseo De La Reforma. You can also walk to the famous Central Park of Mexico (Chaptulpec) closed Mondays
I tried to visit the Bosque de Chapultepec (Mexico’s Central Park), but it was closed on Mondays. You should definitely try to visit this as there is a grand lake and nearby shops. I did explore the Chapultepec shopping area which is close by the Chapultepec Metro. Basically it’s set up like the La Lagunilla flea market, but it’s in a much smaller area.
El Centro Neighborhood
In the historic center of Mexico City, you can find the Zocalo. The Zocalo is a huge main square which serves as an important meeting-place for locals. Think of Mexico City’s Zocalo like the Grand Place in Brussels, Plaza Mayor in Madrid, and the Bear statue in Puerta del Sol in Madrid. Near the Zocalo, you can find the Mexico City Cathedral, the National Palace, and free health care for residents of Mexico City. Health care is provided in the Medi-buses where each one is clearly labelled, health or dental. There is also the Palacio de Belles Artes which is located in the historic center of Mexico City. In addition, there is a huge area with a lot of fountains called Juarez Park located by the Al Benemerito Benito Juarez la Patria monument.
