On our last trip to Mexico, we were lucky enough to get a reservation at Pujol, in the Polanco neighbourhood of Mexico City. Pujol is one of the best restaurants in the world, as of 2019 it's rated as #13 so getting a reservation at this place is a bit of a challenge but never give up! When we first booked our trip almost everything was booked for months and months but a few weeks before departure, one reservation at 6:30 for the Omakase tasting menu opened up and we grabbed it.
Mexico City is a place whose history is rooted within the heart and soul of the people who live there. Despite being a short flight away from most major US and Canadian cities, it feels like travelling across the ocean. With a vibrant art scene and a foodie culture that rivals the best in the world, Mexico City has quickly become one of the most sought after travel destinations. Set between tall mountains and volcanoes, you are nestled into this little valley where the weather is almost always warm, but not too hot and a sweet escape from those bitter cold winter days we're more than experiencing where in the north of the country.
Shopping in Mexico City was one of my favourite activities when I visited this city! I found so many incredible things; textiles, interior decor items, sugar skulls, vintage clothing and more! I loved bartering in the markets and scouring the antique stores for lost treasures. Souvenir shopping in Mexico City is so affordable that you’ll want to get something for everyone so I’ve complied a list of my ‘must-buy’ and places places to shop for your friends and family, and most of all - for yourself!
