Polanco Shopping Walk (Self Guided), Mexico City

When Mexico City’s rich and famous want to shop, they head for the upmarket district of Polanco. With its exclusive shops and luxury boutiques, this exquisite shopping district is often being compared to California's Beverly Hills or the Champs Elysees in Paris. Lining the upscale streets are international brands as well as some of those that are unique to Mexico. Some of the names you will come across are the very epitome of luxury shopping and include Cartier, Burberry and Tiffany.

The main thoroughfare is Presidente Masaryk Avenue, which is Mexico City's equivalent of Rodeo Drive. This is where the ultra-cool and the ultra-rich do their fashion shopping in what is considered to be the most prestigious street in the city. If you are not here to buy, browsing the beautiful window displays is an entertaining way to spend a few hours.

For even more upscale shopping, make tracks for Antara Polanco, a series of shops, restaurants and coffee houses in an outdoor shopping plaza. This space also hosts carnivals and cultural events throughout the year. Another great shopping location is Plaza Moliere, considered to be one of the country's best shopping malls, featuring local and international brands.
