Have fun discovering Mexico's ancient cultures while visiting a real sunken park in town. Then go 500 feet above ground to the city's highest and most technologically advanced observation deck.

This experience overlooks at least five UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

 

What You Will Do

From the bottom of a centuries-old, beautiful and sunken neighborhood park, full of pre-Hispanic art, we will learn of the cultures that pre-date the Europeans in the Americas, learning the story of today's Mexico.

 

After riding the city’s modern Metrobus for two short stations, we will get to the top of Mexico's World Trade Center building, where we will learn the divisions, growth, and geography of the city from a hi-tech observatory, 500 feet above ground.

At a traditional city cantina, we will have a torta (traditional sandwich) and a traditional drink

 

This visit includes the park at the former sand mines, a short ride on del Valle's central Insurgentes Avenue via public transportation (Metrobus), a visit to a city's hi-tech, reality and virtual-reality, look-out observatory at a height of 500 feet, the highest one in town, and a visit to a traditional local cantina (bar) to try a traditional torta (sandwich) and a drink.

Where You Will Be

 

This experience doesn't take place at any touristy, beaten-path neighborhood, but at the best hidden jewel, Colonia del Valle, which lies next to famous Roma and Condesa, but beyond our daily bread.

We will be at Del Valle and Nápoles boroughs, century-old mixed-use neighborhoods at the crossroads of town. We will show you around this modern 100-year-old boroughs which began as a collection of centuries-old towns, like Tlacoquémecatl, Xochimanca, and others.

 

​What Is Included

·        The experience's host and expert.

·        Entrance to some private or public locations has been agreed and is fully included.

·        A complimentary bottle of water or soft drink and a torta (Mexican sandwich) will be offered.

The Experience

 

We will experience the development of technology while learning from the first inhabitants of the land, the Olmecs, 30,000 years ago, all the way to an online and augmented reality observatory. We will see the richness of Mexico as a country, from its origins in Middle America to becoming one of the largest World Heritage Sites’ hosts, today.

 

Ending Point, Facilities and Transportation

 

Visits do not return to the starting point. This experience ends on Insurgentes Sur Avenue, close to Metrobus station Poliforum on Line 1.  Chilpancingo metro station is six blocks away. Uber or other cars can pick you up at Cantina Castillo del Quijote. Your host will always remain with you until he makes sure everyone has the right directions and/or help for their next destination.
