Mexico City has a reputation for being dirty, poor, crowded, uncultured, and unsafe.
Don’t believe the hype.
We were blown away by the amount of art, culture, and well-curated museums we encountered all over the city. We walked around at night and never felt any more unsafe than we would in Chicago, or LA, or any other large metropolis. The food was amazing, the people were friendly, and it was a thoroughly modern metro in which nobody paid us any mind. The people there asked us about our trip and treated us as people, not tourists, and many offered to help us understand the things that were going on around us. We would recommend it to anyone.
We’re confident that after exploring the rest of our posts, Mexico City will defy your expectations, too.
