More about Hotel Del Prado

Diego Rivera's murals in the Alameda Museum

by anagrettel

The mural "Sueño de una tarde dominical en Alameda Central" (Dream of a sunday afternoon in The Alameda) was originally made by Rivera for a very important hotel in the Historical Center of the city of Mexico, the Hotel del Prado (destroyed in the 1985 earthquakes) and at the Alameda in the historic centre, created specially to preserve the mural, considered one of the most well known of the Mexican Muralismo.

Diego Rivera represented as the main figure the Calavera Catrina (the death), very elegantly dressed, with the serpent of feather -essential mythical representation of the pre-Hispanic culture of Mexico-. The Catrina is a work originally created by Jose Guadalupe Posada, artist that emphasizes in the Mexican creation of aims of the XIXth century and of the beginning of the XXth; he is taking the arm of the Catrina. Rivera takes the Catrina and Posada as the main caractheres of the work, because it is dedicated to this great artist, considered the more important Mexican engraver and Rivera always recognized him like his great inspiration.

We can also see "the young Diego", thus self-portraited and at his back Frida Kahlo, the extraordinary painter, wife of Rivera until its death in 1954.

Getting downtime from airport

by ileanardz

Hello all!
Here I am with another question.

It is safe to take the metro from Mexico City Airport (AICM) to Downtown.

I heard there is a metro station just outside the airport and the cost it is only 2 pesos! So for us, who are traveling in group it is cheaper...now the question is, is it safe?

Hope you can help me, or if you have a better option to get downtown (zocalo zone) it will be very appreciated!

The metro now costs 3 pesos. The closest metro station to your hotel (Isabel) is the Isabel la Catolica station on line 1. It will be more economical to use the metro and maybe part of the adventure, but you will do quite a bit of walking and climbing stairs. Lots of baggage is difficult-but not impossible, I've done it.

From the terminal walk south toward metro Terminal Aerea and get on (linea 5) for direction Pantitlan. At Pantitlan look for signs correspondencia linea 1 directon Observatorio. Isabel la Catolica is 10 stops away from pantitlan. From the station Isabel la Catolica you will have to walk 4 blocks North on Avenida Isabel la Catolica, almost but not quite a kilometer.

If its during the day it will be safe, but it might be uncomfortably crowded. Always put your money and Identification in a pocket or bag that you keep somewhere in the front part of your body.

You could hire a van that would take all your group for about 200 pesos from the airport to your hotel if you think things will be too difficult, but I think you should be able to manage the metro OK. It will take you about an hour and a half to get to the hotel considering the walking involved.

Be alert, but not overly worried. The vast majority of the people in Mexico City are nice.

Travel Tips for Mexico City

Visit the Bosque de...

by suzii

Visit the Bosque de Chapultepec. This park is usually very busy both with locals so it's a great place to sit and watch the world go by!

The Museo Nacional de Antroplogia and the Castillo de Chapultepec are nearby. The view over the city from the castle is lovely on a clear day. I loved eveything about Mexico City, espcially the friendly people.

Part Two

by cobrioc

People of all ages made the arduous climb,
some holding children, others carrying flowers. A band played played the whole way up, and men dressed in traditional Indian customes, including a flat, round with painted rings that reminded me of something you'd
shoot arrows into-danced and shook maracas.
On top of the peak, under the watchful eyes of statues of Pancho Villa and two other heroes of a battle fought here during the Mexican revolution, a priest blessed the spent group.

by kucha

The central farmer's market is great. If you live there, it's a good place to do your weekly food shopping (for produce anyway) and if you are just visiting, it's a fun place to shop for sundries including pinatas, exotic spices, and rare chiles. Indeed, stalls have spices stacked as high as 6 feet and scoop out your request into a small plastic bag. Careful coming through customs!
