On your trip to Mexico City you can’t miss the “Venice of Latin America”. Your trip to Mexico won’t be complete until you climb aboard a trajinera and tour the canal routes, while listening to the mariachis singing the best rancheras and have a snack with cold water, tequila, or mezcal.

Of course, keep in mind that chilangos love spicy food, so you’d better watch out for the salsas, even if they tell you they aren’t that spicy. Of course, spicy or not, this delicacy will fill you with pleasure.
In this historic neighborhood, where you can visit the Frida Kahlo museum, you will also find one of the city’s gastronomic treasures: the Mercado de Coyoacán. When you’re in this plaza, which is smaller than others in the city, it will suffice to lift your eyes to the roof to discover your destiny.

Prepare yourself to feast on this dish, consisting of toasted tortillas with every kind of ingredient on top, and which are also very cheap. It is a place to visit several times, and you’ll see why.
