    Traveling While Black

    My first international trip was Mexico city & it was very memorable,i loved the boat tour in Xochimilico!
    Make sure when you visit you be there on a Sunday because Every Sunday in Mexico City, from 8:00am to 2:00pm, locals and tourists alike cycle down Paseo de la Reforma on bikes/skates & skateboarding!

    The most surprising thing about Mexico City was how similar it was to a major American city. I didn’t have much difficulties navigating from neighborhood to neighborhood. Be advised, it is a huge sprawling city with crazy traffic during rush hour. Uber rides are very cheap and convenient. There are great places to try authentic Mexican food, great museums and cultural experiences within the center of the city. If you are looking into venturing off the beaten path, I suggest visiting the canal of Xiochimilco. On the canals of Xiochimilco you can grab some street food, a 40 oz of beer or tequila, and hire a colorful gondola for a boat ride. It’s a very popular past time for locals, you’ll will most likely see large groups enjoying themselves on the water. Lastly, if you have the time, be sure to make the drive out to Teotihuacan, an ancient Mesoamerican city about 25 miles outside of the city.

    Love Mexico City! It is a great inexpensive getaway for those who are stateside. a must see in Mexico city is Frida Kahlo’s house it is now a museum. It is really beautiful! The earlier you go the better as the line to get in can get very long. Also, the street vendors sell really nice Frida Kahlo merchandise outside for the low. I got a beautiful notebook with a portrait painting of Frida on the front.

    Mexico City is an extremely beautiful place. It isn’t too different from the states, being that it has a big city feel, and also there are tons of stores similar to the US. There are lots of tours you can take to see the entire city. Not too far away are the famous Pyramids. It’s about an hour drive or so. There are two huge pyramids (the pyramid of the sun, and the pyramid of the moon). You can hike up these pyramids, and once you make it to the top there is an amazing view. In the central part of the city there is lots of good local food, many shops to buy gifts and souvenirs, and lots of stores to check out.

    Traveling While Black

    Mexico city or in Spanish Ciudad de México (CDMX) is a wonderful city.
    This is a city with a rich history (Civilisation, colonisation, architecture)

    Things to do.
    You can not visit Mexico city and not visit the pyramids of Teotihuacan (Pyramid of the Sun and Pyramid of the mood). You will have a shock knowing that there were a civilisation there in 100 before J.C and with the construction of the pyramids around 250 after J.C.
    I was definitely impressed.

    The best neighborhood to stay is Polanco. A lot of good restaurants, bars and good food.
    For culture, you have to visit the museum of Anthropology and Bellas artes.

    Unfortunately the Afro Mexican culture is quasi inexistant in the capital as the country just recognized a couple of years ago, black Mexican as citizens. So I didn’t find anything for afro communities in the capital.

    Traveling While Black

    I had an awesome experience in Mexico City, Mexico. I traveled solo few days before my birthday, and I will never regret making this choice. Some of my relatives told me I was brave enough to travel by self to CDMC (Cuidad de Mexico) by myself because it’s a “dangerous” city, but I felt safe. People stopped me everywhere I went to take pictures with me and told “Tu estàs muy Bonita!” The love was overwhelming. I wish I could tell you more about that experience. I used Uber and taxi to get around town. It was pretty cheap. I will definitely recommend you to go and experience it for yourself. Much love!
