“Our historical center seems fresher, cleaner and more fun,” says Eva Luz Espigel. “Mexicans like to walk again because there’s a time when people did not feel like going to town.”
After returning Guide to Explore Mexico City after 15 years in Cancun, Eva, an urban adventure singer, says she is impressed by how well her city is doing for the better. The World Design Organization agrees to name the capital as the capital of design for 2018, placing it on a large base for large cities using design to meet the challenges of urbanization.
In a city of this size, it is worth developing a plan, so here’s the best advice from Eva to CDMX (Mexico City).
Be a cult
I really liked our cultural show in this beautiful city. We have more than 100 museums in the city as well as places offering concerts, ballet, very good theater, wrestling and more.
It is important to bear in mind that most museums are closed on Monday in Mexico City, but all archaeological sites are open 365 days a year.
Explore the neighborhoods
There are many beautiful neighborhoods in Guide to Explore Mexico City, such as San Angel, especially on Saturdays when the “Bazar del Sábado” happens. There are many painters and craftsmen who offer their works, in addition to the beautiful architecture of the area.
Coyoacán is another beautiful colonial neighborhood where the Frida Kahlo house is located, there are two interesting markets and you can walk and enjoy the atmosphere of the place.
Do not be afraid of public transport

Sixteen million people move into the city each day. Sometimes I do not know how possible! I always love to take guests in local buses as they give you a real feeling of the city.
The underground was supposed to open for the 1968 Olympics (opened a year later), and the excavations will continue to explore archaeological sites. “This year we will celebrate its 50th anniversary. It is easy to use and costs only five pesos (about 35 cents) per ticket.
Markets must see
There are markets in all neighborhoods of Mexico and you can find anything and everything you need. In the tour I organized, we visited three of the city’s lesser-known markets, from Mercado Rodríguez, where you can see some interesting murals for Diego Rivera students.
Sonoma markets are fascinating because of its magic department and Jamaican markets, named after the hibiscus flower, not the country, are three markets in one flower market that should be seen as beliefs.
There is also a market called Mercado de San Juan in the historic center where you can buy or eat rare meat, such as crocodile, skunk and deer, to name a few. Sellers have locusts, maguey larvae, ants and some other insects so you can taste the food that Mexicans have eaten since before the Latin era. This market is visited by many chefs or cooking students and foreigners living in the city because of the presence of products not only from Mexico but also from Europe, North America, Central America and Asia.
