Gain extensive views of Mexico City during a trip up Torre Latino. Built in 1956 and reaching a height of 188 m (597 ft), the skyscraper was the largest building in the capital until 1984, and represents a landmark in engineering as the first major skyscraper to be successfully built on regularly active seismic land. Take the elevator up to the 44th floor to snap panoramic shots of the capital from the observation deck, and make sure to pay a visit to the onsite museum. There you'll learn about the techniques and technology used to help the skyscraper withstand the 1985 Mexico City earthquake without sustaining any damage.

  • Don't bother the visit: it is not only too expensive (160 Mexican pesos) but one may have to queue up too long at times!

  • You get superb views across the city, including a very good view of the roof of Palacio de Bellas Artes. It’s not very expensive and you don’t have view obstructed by wire railings, so it’s possible.....  more

  • If you're around and have a couple bucks to spend and like "views" then yes, definitely check it out. You got to take 2 elevators up to the top, where then you have to climb two flights of stairs to get to the exterior observation deck. Within the lobbies of the first and second stops to get to the top are kind of hot, there's no AC or anything so that's kind of uncomfortable. But once your at the very top, you're greeted with a freshness and nice breeze from the world. You have amazing views in all four directions which makes for great panorama pictures or pictures in general, although there is a pesky fence obstructing your view for obvious safety reasons. Overall cool spot to check out if you're around
  • Been to Of you've ever been to Sears (Willis) Tower the experiences pretty similar. In addition to just being able to stand on a glass shelf you're able to go up to the observation deck we can take much better photography. They also have a museum with the history of Mexico and you can see pretty much every point mentioned. It's a must see if you're visiting Mexico City.
