Mexico City, Mexico Travel Guide Last Updated: Dec 2021

For a visiting tourist, Mexico City is far nicer than you would probably expect. The historic center is busy and packed with great hotels and restaurants, while the district of Zona Rosa (the pink zone) is more upscale and corporate. The Condesa and Roma districts are more interesting and quite artsy, so there are plenty of areas to choose from. One warning though, almost no one in Mexico City speaks English, unless they are employed at a tourist hotel or upscale restaurant.
