I found the description of this performance very misleading. There was only a tiny amount of ballet and mostly entirely made up of the folk dancing. I was expecting a larger mix of both and therefore myself and my partner were dissapointed and bored. Although...More

Ballet Folklorico is one the more accomplished and established dance collectives in Mexico City. We saw them at the Belle Arts center, which is in itself a marble wonder and is very fun to explore. As others said, this is not a ballet performance --...More

The ticket price is extremely pricy compare to the actual price shown on the tickets. There was no tour whatsoever, but rather just a van ride from and to the hotel. Completely a fraud!

We went to the Sunday morning show at the Palacio des Bellas Artes. No getting tickets but I suspect on holidays and during high tourism seasons you might want to book in advance. The show is about 1 hour, 45 minutes. This is not a...More

A celebration of Mexican music and dance from earliest native Indian to Spanish invasion and Latin American influences. A Mexican version of Ireland's Riverdance. The building itself is a marbled delight. In February when we were there shows were twice weekly on Wednesday and Sunday....More

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

Most of the people attending the performance are tourists, and it is in nice theater (not outside), so it is really up to you, though people tend to be dressed up a bit.
