Travel Designer Review:
El Cardenal - (https://goo.gl/maps/gykXZePjk7GnXfk49)
There are too many places to visit in the Historic Center of Mexico City. The most important are:
These are the restaurants that I recommend that are located between the Historic Center of Mexico City and Colonia Condesa.
In the historical center
El Mayor (https://www.elmayor.com.mx/) - The food is good but the best thing about this restaurant is that it is located right on the main square and has an impressive view of the Templo Mayor. You need to make a reservation in advance.
Azul Histórico (https://goo.gl/maps/YcfaKzJWVF49kvZ89 and https://www.azul.rest/) - Haute cuisine restaurant specializing in Mexican food. The place is beautiful, you need to make a reservation in advance.
El Andaluz (https://goo.gl/maps/K1ZPSWCa1mhmeczn6) - The best Lebanese food you'll ever taste (at least in Mexico City). The restaurant is located in a not very pretty street. It is necessary to make a reservation in advance.
San Juan Market (https://goo.gl/maps/jVjV5MJZqxti8bNs8) - If you like exotic experiences, this is your place. It is not very comfortable to eat but here you can even eat lion meat.
In Colonia Roma
El Lugarcito (https://goo.gl/maps/HPodj2eMbnY3eLjs8) - This is one of my favorite restaurants in the entire city. An atmosphere of relaxation and delicious seafood. Tuna tostada is the best. Be careful because there are several restaurants called El Lugarcito. The one I'm talking about is very close to another restaurant called Parnita on Calle Yucatán.
Colonia Condesa and Colonia Roma are the preferred area for people who come from other countries to live in Mexico. The reason is that there are many cafes, restaurants, bars, parks and beautiful streets to walk.
I am going to mention places where you should walk.
You can start by visiting the house where Alfonso Cuarón filmed the movie Roma (https://goo.gl/maps/zaQZ4nfur4RBpjCb9).
Then walk down the street until you reach Huero Roma Verde (https://g.page/HuertoRomaVerde?share).
From there, walk along Calle de Orizaba to Parque Rio de Janiero (https://goo.gl/maps/yaNJEvTenGEdXqAF9). On the way you will pass through Plaza Luis Cabrera and Calle Alvaro Obregon. (You can do a detour in Álvaro Obregón to see the restaurants and bars).
From Parque Río de Janeiro take Durango street that will take you to the Cibeles Fountain (https://goo.gl/maps/Pyxyu1K5xdHmreQm8).
Then continue through Durango until you reach the intersection of Avenida Veracruz, Mazatlan and Durango (https://g.page/lardomex?share).
From there, walk through Veracruz until you reach Parque España (https://goo.gl/maps/8TgaTLS5eJYKSX8w5) and then go to Parque México (https://goo.gl/maps/u5nDwgkDEAQWABPM8).
I also recommend you walk along the street in Amsterdam that surrounds Parque México.

The following suggested activities and notes are not included in the reservation of this itinerary. The Travel Designer included them so that you can optionally do them on your own during your trip.
For years I have received many visits from friends and family mainly from Europe and the USA who want to discover Mexico City.
Today a friend from Spain asked me to help her organize a trip to Mexico for her best friend who wants to celebrate her honeymoon in Mexico. So I decided to make this trip itinerary to Mexico City that I hope will serve her and everyone who is reading this trip.
Mexico City is a special and unique place in the world. Maybe I think so because I am originally from Mexico City and have spent most of my life there. I spent my childhood and adolescence in a house very close to the center of Coyoacán in the southern part of the city. Later I moved to the Condesa neighborhood and spent a few years living there with roommates from Spain, Italy and Austria.
What is this itinerary about?
I am going to try to guide you so that you visit the places you have to see in Mexico City and also visit others that I am personally going to recommend. I will try to organize the itinerary so that every moment is worth it. Mexico City is so big and so diverse that obviously we will not have time to see everything and you will most likely want to return later. There will be a lot of tourist activities and also a lot of delicious food!
The first day I am going to recommend that you go to dinner at a taqueria. The reason is that I don't know what time you arrive and usually everyone arrives very tired and sometimes late.
On the second day I am going to recommend you to visit the pyramids of Teotihuacan. Without a doubt, it is one of the places that you cannot miss. The visit is quite tiring, and in my experience, many prefer to do it on the first day. If you don't want to do something so tiring the first day you can always change the order of the activities for each day.
On the third day I am going to recommend you to visit Coyoacán and San Angel to the south of the city. This part is very famous because the renowned artist Frida Kahlo and her husband Diego Riviera grew up here. I highly recommend you watch the Sandra Hayek movie.
On the fourth day I am going to recommend you to walk around the Condesa, the Roma and the City Center. There are so many things to see. I will try to guide you to see the best ones.
On the fifth day I am going to recommend you to go to Xochimilco and the chinampas.
