The 5 most Instagrammable Places in Mexico City

Mexico City is apparently the second most instagrammed destination in Mexico, after Cancún. What is it about Mexico City that makes it so popular with Instagram users? Maybe its vibrant colours, historical monuments or the amazing picture ready street food. Maybe it’s a combination of all of them. This is the reason we put together a guide to the 5 most Instagrammable places in CDMX.

Kiosko Morisco, Santa María de la Ribera


A not very well known spot, but a destination that includes all the key features of a good Instagram photo, the Kiosko Morisco is in the Santa María la Ribera neighborhood. Constructed entirely from Steel, this masterpiece is well-known for the gorgeously Islamic-inspired geometric patterns that surround the 44 external and eight internal pillars, as well as the ceiling and roof, which are covered by a dainty glass dome and a bronze Eagle. Definitely one attraction your Instagram can’t miss.

To get there from La Palomilla you can take the Metrobus Álvaro Obregón to the Buenavista station.

Espacio Escultórico at Ciudad Universitaria


The Espacio Escultórico is another hugely popular Instagram location in the City because of the minimalistic- geometric metal sculptures that surround the space. These make for an excellent photo-op and are also incredibly cool to see up close. Its objective is to represent the cosmos. It is a reference to the prehispanic culture; for this reason the figures were created by seven artists that belong to the Aesthetic Geometry movement. Take your cellphone there and take some cool photos.

From La Palomilla you can take Metro Sevilla or Metro Chapultepec to Metro Universidad.

The view from la Torre Latinoamericana


Your visit to Mexico City couldn’t be complete without popping up to the Miralto bar at the top of the towering Torre Latinoamericana that offers an amazing view of the historic centre. It is widely recognized internationally as an engineering and architectural landmark. From this point you can even sneak a peek at the distinctive blue roof of the Basílica de Guadalupe in the north.
To get there from La Palomilla you can take Metro Sevilla or Metro Chapultepec to Metro Bellas Artes.

Museo Soumaya


Carlos Slim’s architecturally impressive, geometric art gallery, Museo Soumaya, is a favourite with Instagram users. This ostentatiously modern building is not only amazing from the outside but from the inside as well. It has a chic interior design that allows the visitor to ascend or descend in a Instagrammable spiral of wide walkways.

The easiest way to get there is if you take an uber from La Palomilla.

Coyoacán’s street art


Coyoacán could be the most Instagram-friendly neighbourhood in Mexico City, (in terms of Street art at least). From museums that have well-known and large scale murals to the religious inspired street art images you can find throughout this sprawling zones... it’s like an Instagrammer’s dream.
