Wow, what a fun day this was in Mexico City!

Back when we lived in Guadalajara, we LOVED that the city closes down major streets every Sunday for recreational activities. You could walk your dog, take out your skateboard, bring the kids, ride a bike – however you wanted to move around the city, really!

When we heard that CDMX had the same thing (called Muevete en Bici), we jumped at the opportunity to get some fresh air on Paseo de la Reforma, the most notable street in Mexico City. We took an Uber from our hotel in Santa Fe and grabbed two MoBike rentals to join the fun. And what fun it was!

Later in the day, we find ourselves in a super cool library bar and a Japanese restaurant with swings! Both of these were in Colonia Juarez in Zona Rosa, one of the many interesting neighborhoods of Mexico City. Finally, we made our way to the absolutely stunning, Monumento a la Revolucion. We took the elevador to the lookout point and soaked in the spectacular 360 views of the city.

Unfortunately, our time in Mexico City is coming to an end—this time at least—so we’ll have to save all the things we didn’t get to do for another trip. Do you think we should come back to Mexico City? Let us know in the comments! For now, it’s back to our home in Puerto Morelos, Quintana Roo.

In January 2018, we sold everything we owned in the US (except our husky Laska & what fit in our tiny, tangerine Prius C3) to travel the world—starting with Mexico. Since then, we’ve been making travel videos about our life in Mexico and the new experiences we encounter while traveling the world.

  1. Hey MJ! I am so relieved you found swings with chain link. I was on Isla Mujeres at a bar that had swings with ropes and one broke. No, I'm not gigantic…it just broke. I wiped out. Be careful with the rope swings in Mexico. Thank God my husband was there to save me. Great video! Peace.

  2. Tangerine I'm glad you enjoy good time in bicycle and went up at the Revolution Monument there are more places you are goig to visit
    Get more things about my city.

  3. I lost 3 hours trying to get those scooters, bikes or whatever would be there for you to roll around the city and couldn't due to some bank connection issue. I was bummed, that when I gave up realized I had lost all morning and wouldn't have time to do everything I had planned.

  4. you guys are cute and charming and everything you say is the truth as you experience it , complete honesty, but that dog of yours wow, it is gorgeous.

  5. I was in CDMX // Mexico City few months ago and I can say that I had good times 😀. CDMX is a huge city, but Uber is cheap. I won't recommend Taxis as they charge 2X-3X 🤑 more than Uber. I love to take pictures and make videos and upload them on my YT channel 🤗 – be safe & happy travels.

  6. Thank you for the video!

    I was in CDMX just three weeks ago. (My first time ever in Mexico.) Brought back great memories. I took the Reforma Segway tour and it was awesome!

    The oldest capital of North America, and of the Americas.


    Historical capital of four political entities:

    Capital of the Aztec Empire
    Capital of the Viceroyalty of the New Spain
    Capital of the First Mexican Empire
    Capital of the Mexican Republic

    Nicknamed by the conquerors The Venice of the new world.

    Mexico City, is the second city with more museums, in the world, has the Chapultepec Castle, the only real castle in America to be inhabited by emperors.
    Besides the Bosque de Chapultepec that is three times bigger than Central Park in New York.

    El Paseo de la Reforma is considered the second most beautiful avenue in the world, after the Champs-Élysées in Paris.

    The capital has a legacy that mixes architecture, pre-Hispanic, colonial, and modern, making Mexico City a cosmopolitan city.

    The ancient Mexico-Tenochtitlan, capital of the Aztec Empire, has been transformed into "Mexico City"
    The metropolis of Latin America.

  8. GUYS definitive you have to see this doumental: Netflix's documentary series 'Las Crónicas del Taco' is an ode to the hardworking taqueros behind Mexico's beloved delicacy, tacos, to appreciate the origin of the Mexican taco! … And know how to eat it, as well as the different types of tacos !! so enrich your channel with the ideas that you will see here …….. greetings from the MEX-USA border

  9. The museo de cera in Mexico City is a lot better than the same museo o type of museo un London, New York and Veracruz Mexico, I've been in all, so I can tell

  10. You found El Péndulo/Bukowski's bar, one of my favorite places to eat and by books in the City. There are actually 5 of those coffee-libraries (without Bukowski's bar which is only in zona Rosa) and all of them are beautiful, specially the one in colonia Roma and Polanco
