Quesadillas sizzling on street corners outside cosy coffee shops; mariachi in sequined sombreros serenading late-night revellers; tower blocks casting long shadows over baroque churches and Aztec ruins studded with cacti. Mexico City simultaneously conforms to every stereotype and challenges every preconception with shameless self-assurance. We push past the colourful chaos and Frida Kahlo merchandise (although, naturally, we drop by her cobalt-blue home) to find the city’s tastiest tacos and the retailers breathing new life into classic crafts. We lead you to our favourite mural-splashed buildings and the best places in which to practise your salsa – ending up in a dimly lit mezcal bar or two for good measure. There’s never been a better time to visit the Mexican capital so dust off your dancing shoes and join the fiesta. Órale, amigos!

The Monocle Travel Guide series reveals our favourite places in each city we cover, from the ideal route for an early-morning run to the best spots for independent retail. Full of surprises and quirks, they also feature detailed design and architecture pages, neighbourhood walks to get you away from the crowds and our favourite places to eat everything be it tasty fast food or something truly celebratory.
