We traveled to 16 countries last year, and Mexico City was one of our absolute favorite destinations. It’s extremely affordable—our 30-minute Uber ride from the airport cost us a mere $6, and the Airbnb prices are unbelievable.

We stayed right in the heart of the trendy Roma neighborhood, and had a gorgeous apartment to ourselves for a week for only $300.

Of course, we stuffed our faces with countless tacos (typically around $1 each)—but you don’t have to limit yourself to street food if you’re traveling on a budget here.

Indulge in a meal at two of the world’s best restaurants (Pujol and Quintonil), where a tasting menu is around $100 per person—unheard of for restaurants of this caliber, which typically cost four times this price.
