My most exciting things to do in Mexico City

Your perfect Local will share your interests, personality and passion for meeting like-minded travelers, as well as understanding your lifestyle, language and culture. Whatever your interests are, we can connect you with a like-minded Local who can’t wait to show you the places you’ll love to visit, eat at venues where the food is to your taste and share a side of their city that they know will captivate you! But some of our Locals' favourite things to do in Mexico City are strolling around the historic Centro Histórico, trying some of the best tacos al pastor from street food stalls where locals love to eat, exploring the Polanco neighbourhood, spending an afternoon on a vibrantly painted trajinera gondola seeing the Aztec’s floating gardens in Xochimilco and exploring the maze of cobbled streets, leafy plazas and colourful shops, markets and coffee spots in vibrant Coyoacán.

Born and raised in Mexico City but I lived many years in Italy, France, Israel, USA, so I speak fluently several languages and I have a lot of experience showing around my city and sharing my passion for history, art, food, and photography.

I am a happy, bubbly and friendly lady. I love my city and I love showing people the special places that local Mexicans love, many of which tourists unfortunately miss. Mexico City is fascinating, colorful, and vibrant and where ancient history rubs shoulders with contemporary Mexican culture. I am adventurous and I like people who like new experiences. I was gymnastics National champion when I was young and now I make natural products such as soaps and natural bubbles
