Skirted by busy commercial thoroughfare Paseo de la Reforma, Colonia Cuauhtémoc is an upscale suburban retreat from its residents’ day jobs. Coffee in hand, buttoned-up managers hustle to morning meetings as execs arrive via chauffeur. Lunchtime means waves of strategic meetings at swanky outdoor eateries or taquerías. By sundown, niños return from school and Cuauhtémoc settles into a comforting lull of neighborly socials. Anchored by good salaries and good friends, Cuauhtémoc’s community continues to grow.See places to stay Save this neighborhood
