Four Days in Mexico City
If you love amazing food, architecture and good weather Mexico City should definitely be on your must-visit list. We had the incredible opportunity to stay at RYO KAN which is located just outside of the hip Roma area. This hidden gem is a tranquil Japanese oasis in the heart of CDMX so it almost feels as though you are in two different destinations at once. RYO KAN is a boutique hotel with beautiful natural light in the interior courtyard which all ten of the unique residences open on to.
Our trip was a last minute four-day mini vacation but we still managed to pack a lot in. A good portion of our time was spent visiting many of Luis Barragan’s projects throughout Mexico City. We highly recommend emailing the places ahead of time as many of these homes are private and require a reservation. Another architectural highlight was our visit to the Biblioteca Vasconcelos where the entrance is free. Additionally, we carved out some time to visit several of the museums including, the Frida Kahlo Museum, Museo Soumaya, Museo Jumex, Museo Tamayo, and the Museo Nacional de Antropología. Many of these are closed on Mondays so keep that in mind when planning your trip!
We came for the architecture but the food is what really stole our hearts. Contramar is a must if you are a seafood lover and be sure to book a reservation to Pujol months in advance (seriously) if you really want to treat yourself.
A special thank you to the staff at RYO KAN and Cristina Medina-González for their help.
