My current hood here is Santa Fe, the best thing about it is that it’s the most modern area of the city. It has everything, the best shops, the best restaurants (also most expensive). The worst must be that since lots of companies have their offices here, it is very difficult to commute to on working days at working hours.

What’s your choice of transportation in Mexico City and why?

Transportation in Mexico City sucks if it is something to do in Santa Fe I would walk, but if not, my choice is a car, because in Santa Fe there is no subway, but if you want to go downtown, the subway is the best, fastest and cheapest choice.

Zocalo, Museo Antropologia, Coyoacán, Xochimilco, Tenampa (mariachi) and Arena Mexico (fights) just to say a few.

Tomorrow’s your last day in Mexico City. How do you spend it?

I would wake up early and go have breakfast at Lalo! Then I’ll go to Zocalo and drink a Margarita on the terrace of the Majestic Hotel with a spectacular view of the plaza. For lunch, I would go to Pujol restaurant, then to the Limantour for a couple of drinks and with luck to listen to a good rock band at the Plaza Condesa only to finish the evening at the Tenampa in Plaza Garibaldi to drink tequila and listen to Mariachis to death.

What’s your favorite vacation city in the world and why?

In Mexico it's Playa del Carmen, because it has the most beautiful beach in the world, the people are very friendly and you still have great food and nightlife. Abroad my favorite vacation city is Las Vegas, because it has everything for every plan.
