Hi there! I'm Mónica, your friendly local host here in Mexico City. What I adore most about Mexico City is the kaleidoscope of cultural expressions that seamlessly blend together. From morning till night, the city is full of stories waiting to be discovered, each more captivating than the last. In my free time, you'll find me exploring the city's museums, seeking out new culinary adventures, and strolling through enchanting neighborhoods like Santa María la Ribera, Coyoacán, Polanco, and the historic heart of the city. I know these areas like the back of my hand! As your Mexico City guru, I can show you to the most iconic spots and unveil the hidden gems that most tend to miss. So, if you're up for an unforgettable experience, count on me to make your visit to this magnificent city truly memorable. Let's create some fantastic memories together!
