Our Favorite Mexico City Photo Spots
Palacio de Correos de México
One of the top photos spots in Mexico City is oddly enough a post office! You can’t deny that the interior is pretty grand and impressive, with all its intricate architecture and designs. Get a photo on the steps!
If street art is your think, there’s no better place to go than Coyoacán. Snap photos next to colorful murals, from the life-size to the larger than life. You’ll find something interesting and unique to catch your eye at every single turn. This is also a historic center of Mexico City and you can find some cool discoveries at the neighborhood’s Mexican market.
If you want photos that incorporate some of the more local feel of Mexico City, San Angel is a lovely residential neighborhood that features homes in an array of hues. The area is filled with character and provides a great backdrop to your photos.
In the southern part of Mexico City, Xochimilco is sometimes called the “Venice of Mexico.” It’s filled with canals that are left over from the Aztecs and their water transport system. Check out the colorful gondolas that will pick you up for a lift if you so desire. (If you’re into the creepy and supernatural, this will also be your starting point if you’re headed to the infamous Island of the Dolls.)
Wherever you decide to snap some photos while you’re visiting Mexico City, taking advantage of a vacation photographer can make your trip and your memory making that much easier. They worry about the hard stuff — the right scenery, the lighting, the poses — while you just have a great time and see a side of Mexico City that you otherwise might not get to enjoy.
