"Paseo de la Reforma and Zona Rosa" La Zona Rosa Tip by AnnaLupilla
La Zona Rosa, Mexico City: 11 reviews and 10 photos
The original stretch of Paseo de la Reforma was a 12-km-avenue that linked Castillo de Chapultepec to the city center. Nowadays, this avenue is at least twice as long: its west end links up with Mexico City ? Toluca highway while its north end joins Calzade de Guadalupe.
In just over 130 years, the original sector of Reforma has been transformated into the city?s most important avenue because of its role as a major business and tourist corridor. On the other hand, the sight of this spacious urban road depicts virtually everything that this city and country have striven to become in modern times, beyond their treasured pre-hispanic and colonial past.
Along Reforma or just nearby are located, in roundabouts, the urban icons of Columna de la Independencia, Monumento a Cuauhtemoc, Fuente de Diana la Cazadora and Monumento a Cristobal Colon.
Like the rest of Mexico, Paseo de la Reforma is full of contrasts that visitors cannot help noticing.
Halfway between Alameda and Chapultepec, Paseo de la Reforma passes by the Zona Rosa; this is a fascinating place offering a wide range of options for families, tourism and business people during the day and a place featuring all sorts of adult entertainment at night.
