La Condesa

Colonia Condesa, Cuauhtémoc, Ciudad Mexico, FD, 06140

The Basics

Located in the Cuauhtémoc borough of central Mexico City, La Condesa housed the artistic upper class during the early 20th century. Eventually those residents moved to newer neighborhoods, making way for younger, creative types who were seeking cheaper rent. Today Condesa, which draws comparisons to hipster neighborhoods in Brooklyn, has become a foodie destination within Mexico City, with readily available cuisine tours of the area and nearby La Roma.

Perfect guide. Amazing city.

Private Mexico City Walking Tour with a Local: Roma & Condesa 100% Personalized
This was our first time in Mexico City and I certainly hope not the last. Lando was an amazing guide, bringing to life the history of this bustling, vibrant city. It was very much like meeting up with a good friend who shows you all the best spots. If you have some must sees, let Lando know and he’ll do his best to feature them but also I’d suggest allowing him to take the lead in the experience. You will likely see and do many things that you hadn’t expected. Thank you for a wonderful time!

Isaac was such a warm, friendly and passionate tour guide. As a former resident of Roma and Condesa he knew a lot about the areas, the history and the architecture. His love of the area was contagious. I can't wait to come back and grab a Mamey icecream with Isaac again 😊

When to Get There

If you’re visiting La Condesa on a day trip, keep in mind that, as in most of Mexico, many businesses and shops close between 2pm and 4pm. Traffic may be heavy and boutiques may be closed around that time. Also, Mexico City’s peak tourist season typically runs from November to May, so popular areas like La Condesa may be more crowded.

The Frida Kahlo Museum

Art lovers won’t want to miss the Frida Kahlo Museum, located about 6 miles (10 kilometers) south of Roma and La Condesa in Coyoacán. Also known as the Blue House (La Casa Azul) because of its can’t-miss cobalt blue walls, the historic home—which was Kahlo’s birthplace—now serves as a museum filled with works from the famous Mexican artist and her husband Diego Rivera, along with the couple’s Mexican folk art, photographs, memorabilia, personal effects, and other items.
