The Ultimate Shopping Guide to Mexico City
Central America’s fashion capital and overall stylish metropolis, Mexico City has plenty of unique shopping options. Influenced by rich history with an Aztec touch and its beaming weather, the city is a perfect playground for indie shopping in between dodging the continuous rainy season or feasting upon tacos and other street food (it’s the real deal). Here’s a list of a few of the best Mexico City shopping destinations.

Mexico’s own 180° Shop focuses on creating and celebrating contemporary Mexican design. Plus you can guarantee that no one will ever have something similar to your purchase as the store only produces a limited quantity of unique items with modernized traditional motifs. It’s an Aztec-meets-streetwear kind of thing. You can also stay right above the store at Casa Colima 180.
