"My friend Zayda is both beautiful and flexible. On this particular day she wanted to go to a hot tub so we found this "love hotel." It was incredible- full of bright colors and pop art like a 1970's record store."
Go: Get lost in the cobbled streets and charming lane-ways of Coyocán, taking in the beautiful colonial-style buildings, squares, and churches. Be sure to visit The Frida Kahlo Museum, or "La Casa Azul," to take an intimate look at Kahlo's art, love and life within the home in which she was born and died.
Stay: Swing into Andrés and Zayla's "love hotel," the Pop Life Hotel. Each toom is full of light and features bright and bold furniture- there are mirrors everywhere, funky sofas, even a padded circular hoop chair that seems fit for Cirque du Soleil.
Eat: For a late night snack, try the legendary tacos al pastor at El Borrego Viudo.
Drink: If you're in the mood for adventure try pulque, the ancient and once sacred Aztec beverage that dates back to 2,000 years currently enjoying a revival among Mexican City youth. Made by fermenting maguey sap, this frothy, milky beverage has been described as vicious, sour, and bittersweet.
