The best place to enjoy Bellas Artes palace view. It's located on the 9th floor of Latinoamericana Tower. It has a pretty good variety of snacks and a coffee bar. Have your camera ready to take an awesome picture from up there.

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
