Cool Things To Do in Mexico City

Finding Cool Things to Do in Mexico City is easy because it is easily one of the world's coolest cities. "Cool" resides in trendy neighborhoods like Condesa and Roma but can also be found in the newly emerging areas of downtown near Avenida Bucarelli.

The #1 Cool Thing is the Mercado El Chopo. The city is known for interesting public markets and El Chopo is one of the most entertaining. On Saturdays, the alternative crowd fills the aisles between stands selling music and skater, rock, and goth apparel and paraphenalia.

The Centro Cultural de Espana - Cultural Center of Spain - is #2 on the list of Cool Things: it is a gathering space for Mexico City's young and creative class who flock here for its cutting edge art exhibits. The roof terrace is a chic place in the evenings and on Friday and Saturday, international DJs attract dancing crowds until 2 in the morning.

If sneakers are your thing, there's no cooler place to go than #3, Shelter, on Calle Colima in Roma Norte. This shop is popular with skateboarders and hip-hoperos and offers all the top brands and unique, private labels. Colima is one of the city's centers of cool - up-to-the-moment galleries, shops, clubs, and performance spaces line a three-block stretch near Parque Pushkin.

Polyforum Siquieros, #9 on the Cool Things list, is an undulating building covered inside and out with the world's largest mural painted by Mexican artist, David Alfaro Siqueiros.
