A little bit touristy but thoroughly enjoyable giving a strong study of the culture of Mexico in dance and music. Especially worth seeing with kids (but even adults can enjoy even the puppet parts!) The music and dance by highly trained professionals is stunning, as is the Palacios de Belles Artes where we saw the show. Almost worth seeing just... More

I have seen Ballet Folklorico on tour in the U.S. in city concert halls; I have seen "lesser" (but cool) Ballet Folklorico-type shows in Mexico, including in nightclubs. But seriously, you need to pony up a bit of dinero and go see it IN BELLAS ARTES, where the building, the concert hall, and the performance itself just screams "Mexico" in... More

This is a must! Beautiful show, great dancers and a taste of the rich Mexican culture. We didn’t know what precisely to expect, and were blown away. It was by far one of the best shows I have ever seen. Highly recommend going while visiting M City.

A must-see in Mexico City, Folklorico is a colorful, high-energy celebration of the country's music, dances, costumes, history and traditions. But if you sit in the first row -- like we did -- you may need earplugs to withstand the high-decibel drumming of one of the scenes.

This is more than a dance review as there are not only 40 dancers but 10 musicians who perform. The music is wonderful. These men are real maestros of their instruments and sing brilliantly. The dance is certainly spectacular. On the evening we went the audience could not stop cheering. We loved it!

Staying in Alameda

Neighbourhood Profile
Alameda
This beautiful park was once the playground for the wealthiest families in the colonial era, and is now the perfect place where locals and visitors can spend a sunny weekend afternoon to relax or shop for souvenirs at the market. Kids can run around or grab a bite of cotton candy while teens and adults wander around admiring the charming gardens and the sculptures that adorn it. Once the heat rises, it may be time to visit one of the many cozy restaurants or cafés with its characteristic art nouveau facades to cool down and call it a day.
