OK - this is the neighborhood I want to live in. Great local fare, shopping, tree-lined streets, mid-century buildings, and modern as well, the perfect spot to unwind from the rest of the crowded city. I was very comfortable in this neighborhood.

Not my kind of place. Velvet ropes, exclusionary, Hummer dealerships. I've lived in NYC and San Fransisco and Polanco takes the worst of these places and reinstalls them in Mexico. Mexico deserves better!

Not crowded streets. Good for walking, running or cycling. Great views and apartments in the surroundings. Very close to Paseo de La Reforma and the Park of Chapultepec.

Polanco is the finest and more diverse commercial district in Mexico, with a wide variety of stores (walk by Mazarik avenue), and restaurants (visit Polanquito). Close to Chapultepec park and to a wide variety of museums and theaters.

We walked the Polanco district for 6 days. A very nice place to live and shop and eat.. Upscale stores etc. The Polanco has the great shopping center as shown in the photo, the vertical triangular building with a tower, Chapultepec park, and several good hotels.

We stayed in the Hyatt Regency Mexico City which is in the Polanco area. We were walking around and had Dinner, Lunch and breakfast there. We loved staying at this area. The area is wonderful, clean and trendy. It has a lots of extraordinary restaurants, bars and shopping. We will come back.

You will see the new rich Mexicans pretending to be someone they are not, brand name stores with high prices, fake and plastic people all around, atmosphere feels fake and prices high everywhere you go, not the best in my opinion.
