Mexico City

Mexico City’s downtown at night [Photo Essay]

By Sergio Camalich

Since I moved to Mexico City, I’ve been fascinated by all the crazy and amazing things you can find downtown.

From it’s wonderful mix of Colonial, Art Deco and Modern architecture to all the regular characters you’ll find along the walking street of Madero, you’ll always find something new to be amazed by. Plus, if you’re lucky enough, you might be surprised by an opera show from a balcony or even a free concert in the middle of the Zócalo.

All this beauty is even more impressive at night, when all the streetlights give a romantic vibe to the whole area, so that’s why I decided to make a quick tour by night and hopefully capture a small part of all this I’m telling you.

One more thing that I’d like you to notice, specially for foreigners, is safety. Despite the news you might get, Mexico City is one of the safest cities you’ll find in Mexico and all around the world. With police all around, specially in touristic areas, you’ll have nothing to worry about.
