This is a pedestrian street that runs from the Zocalo to the Alameda. At times it held throngs so large that it was overwhelming. People-watching heaven. Pushy eyeglass pusher hell.

The positive was you could walk without traffic. It also had numerous shops and stores that were promoted by touts along the street. There were also many people asking for money. Interesting place to walk through but that was about it.

Dodging traffic in crowded Mexico City is no fun, so this street is a delight. Judging from the vast numbers of people that crowd it day and night, I'm not alone in this judgment. I use it mainly for transportation, not shopping. There are, however,...More

I enjoyed walking from Bella Artes to Constitution park along this pedestrian mall. True, I enjoy walking, so that could have been main attraction. Lots of people, and MANY jewelry shops and little hallways leading to shops. There were some interesting buildings, but did not...More

We went there on Friday night - a great place to to see some night life. There are bars, clubs but also a lot of street entertainment. It's a pedestrian only street, very safe and crowded, a fun place to be at night.

This is the Hollywood Blvd or Time Square of Mexico City. There are lots of people wearing costumes looking to collect a bit of change while you shoot a photo with them. I particularly liked the copper painted and dressed bandits. There were two sets...More
