Neighborhood · Hidden Gem · Shopping
Explore the leafy streets of Polanco, one of the city's most upscale and exclusive neighborhoods. Notable because of its cultural diversity, the district has historically been a place where Spanish, Ashkenazi Jewish, and Lebanese immigrants settled. See evidence of these roots today in the varied set of eateries and shops, alongside department and flagship stores of some of the world's premier brands and chains. A construction boom in the 1950s brought the addition of impressive mansions and apartment blocks, displaying a striking neo-Colonial architectural style. Head to the neighborhood's many museums, galleries, and music venues, and browse the menus of the numerous restaurants before picking one to suit your mood.

  • We stayed in this area for 3 nights in JW Marriott. We walked at 11:00PM at night and find it safe. Never seen so many police in one area in my life.  more »
  • Green, quiet, nice residential buildings, galleries, shops and restaurants. Looks safe. Perfect area for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Or just to hang out.  more »
