Don't get me wrong. The Palacio des Belles Artes is an AMAZING venue and the show itself is a high energy fast-paced race through Mexican culture and history via music and dance. Mariachis in particular are spectacular and the dancing gets a little repetitive but is generally as good as these things get. Why the '1*' review? Whoever manages this... More

We arrived just as the show was starting and we were promptly shown to our seats. The show was absolutely excellent and in my opinion is a must see. Look at the details of the costumes and you can see all of the regions of Mexico represented as well as a number of historical points.

I was a bit unsure if I wanted to watch a ballet performance. This, however was entertaining and amazing. Creative repertoire of the local dances presented for an hour and half without intermissions. The dance troupe has about 40 members and there are about 10 musicians. No part of this was boring or insipid.

We avoided the high-priced tour companies and ticketmaster fees and still enjoyed this show. We took uber to the Palacio Bellas Artes on a Wednesday and paid about $16/ticket at the box ofice for balcony seats. The performance began at 8:30 and we arrived at 8:00pm. There were seats available on all levels although fewer seats available in the balcony.... More

If you're visiting Mexico City and can include this experience in your schedule, your attendance will be well-repaid with memories you'll treasure for a lifetime. Firstly, be advised that the performance is only given two nights a week, I believe (I don't have the pamphlet in front of me now so do check their schedule of performances carefully) and tickets...

This was one of the greatest highlights of our trip. Phenomenal presentations, breath taking, awe inspiring, entertaining - I could go on and on. I think its a must see if you're into learning about Mexico history and culture.

A fabulous performance of dancing and singing that is a highlight of the trip. I saw the performance at the Castle of Chapultepec and it was a magnificent backdrop. I would recommend this event for anyone looking for a fun and exciting cultural activity.

A little bit touristy but thoroughly enjoyable giving a strong study of the culture of Mexico in dance and music. Especially worth seeing with kids (but even adults can enjoy even the puppet parts!) The music and dance by highly trained professionals is stunning, as is the Palacios de Belles Artes where we saw the show. Almost worth seeing just... More

I have seen Ballet Folklorico on tour in the U.S. in city concert halls; I have seen "lesser" (but cool) Ballet Folklorico-type shows in Mexico, including in nightclubs. But seriously, you need to pony up a bit of dinero and go see it IN BELLAS ARTES, where the building, the concert hall, and the performance itself just screams "Mexico" in... More

Neighbourhood Profile
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 be time to visit one of the many cozy restaurants or cafés with its characteristic art nouveau facades to cool down and call it a day.
