Surviving as a small Mexican town in the middle of the metropolis, Escandón blurs the lines between the past and the present as the relentless activity of the city fades into the background. Family life and family businesses anchor the community, contrasting the trendsetting coolness of Condesa to the north. In Escandón, grandchildren frequent the same corner stores their grandparents did, and grandparents drop off their grandchildren at the same schools their own children attended.See places to stay Save this neighborhood

It is very central, close to Chapultepec, and very well connected through the bus and metro station. The neighborhood is friendly and full of nice little stores, markets, bars, and restaurants."

Very much enjoyed my stay in la Colonia Escandón. It's very close to La Condesa, but has a distinct feel and tons of cheap eateries around."
