Bordered by three of the city’s main arteries, Insurgentes, Paseo de la Reforma, and Avenida Chapultepec, La Juárez is a trendy neighborhood with a multi-faceted personality, making it a good spot to stay in when you visit the capital. Home to La Zona Rosa, the area of the LGTB community, a growing business center, and a new artsy scene, La Juárez has seen a comeback in the last few years following its decadence after the quake in 1985. Its French-style buildings from the rich Porfiriato era now host office complexes and galleries. Many of the city’s top chefs and restaurant groups have opened second and third locations here. Along with its modern vibe, the area is still proudly local, with its launderettes, cocinas económicas (budget restaurants), and “cantinas” (old Mexican-style bars). The area’s cultural scene is worth exploring – check its numerous art galleries, cultural centers and the Metropolitan Theater. In La Juárez you can also admire several major monuments, including the Angel of Independence, the Huntress Diana Fountain, and the Glorieta de la Palma, located along Reforma. Walk around and enjoy it!
