Mexico City is a perfect solo-traveling destination. You already know why I recommend traveling solo – read this.



Like always, I’ve found the best, cheap round-trip tickets on Skyscanner to Mexico City and left 2 DAYS later! I didn’t know what I was going to do or where I was going to stay until I landed in CDMX. But, I knew it was going to be an adventure. I’ve decided to stay at a budget-friendly hostel: CDMX Art Gallery near downtown. I’ve stayed at this same hostel 4 more times after my first visit. It’s an understatement when I say I’ve fallen in love with this sweet, chaotic city.

It’s true — Wherever you go becomes a part of you somehow…



*Here are 7 reasons why Mexico City / CDMX is a MUST!*


Crucial tip: Once y’all get to Mexico City… be sure to buy some toilet paper once you land since many public restrooms do not offer toilet paper. Most public restrooms or gas station restrooms will ask for 2 to 5 pesos to use the bathroom and allow you to take little bit of toilet paper from their hands. So, pack your own as a back-up. You will always need coins.

#7. Your U.S. dollar will go a LONG way:

$.20 tacos? $.25 metro ticket to basically go anywhere in Mexico City? F’YEAH.
$.30 ice cream? Just take my money. $2 tequila? Give me 20 bottles.
$5 for 30 minute Uber ride in CDMX? 🙌🏽

#6. NOT A SINGLE MOMENT OF BOREDOM: 

Museums? Parks? Castles? Architect? Shopping? Siiiiii. ✔️
YOU CHOOSE: Museo Frida Kahlo, Museo Nacional de Antropologia, Lucha Libre, Templo Mayor, Palacio Nacional, Catedral Metropolitana, Zocalo (Plaza de la Constitucion), Bosque de Chapultepec and the list goes on.

#3.  Like I mentioned on #6, there are so much to see and experience. But, I love that I can take a quick $2 – $7 USD bus ride to some incredible spots.

My favorites? Xochimilco (45 minutes away) & Teotihuacan ($3.50/2 hour bus ride). If you have more time to explore, consider taking a short road or bus-trip to Tolantongo, Tepoztlan, Oaxaca, Taxco, and Puebla.

#2. Of course, the FOOD!

Cochinita Quesadilla & Tacos al Pastor are my absolute favorites. I can eat these all day, every day.

#1. THE PEOPLE

I’ve never met so many kind, interesting people in any other cities compare to Mexico City. I truly believe that I wouldn’t have met these incredible people if I wasn’t traveling solo and staying at a hostel. I’ve met one of my best friends in CDMX through CouchSurfing hangouts. I also met these 2 super Mexican travel bloggers! Check out Cultura Distinta & Miguel y sus petacas. 🙌🏽

JUST GO.

    I have been down to Mexico, but not all the way to Mexico City. It does look so amazing there. And I know the dollar does go a long way. I really need to go there sometime soon.
