What else do you need?
Roma Norte: for living (get your daily bread at Rosetta, or a great espresso at ‘Alma Negra’)
Condesa: for hanging out/partying/coffee (Blend Station)
Polanco: for fancy food (Dolce Patria) and the best Cochinita Pibil (El Turix– order the ‘panucho’– deep-fried taco).
Ideal for digital nomads
- Relatively cheap cost of living
- Great startup culture (my favorite place to work is ‘Blend Station’). Ubiquitous wifi (not as fast as Vietnam, but good enough)
- Great food
- Great youth culture
Great for street photography
- People are incredibly friendly, and not anti-camera or anti-photo
- Parents aren’t paranoid about you photographing their kids
- Tons of street life and people
- Great colors
