Contrasting Roma Norte’s hip, progressive vibe, Roma Sur revolves around tradition and daily routine. Historically an aristocratic hub, Roma Sur's residential streets now teem with calloused-hand workers, many from neighboring Latin American countries. Housewives buy fruit from street vendors, teenagers grab lunch at Mercado Medellín, and old-timers sip coffee and flip through the newspaper as familiar faces stream by. Less focused on their image than most, Roma Sur’s Chilangos cherish the simpler things in life.See 30 places to stay Save this neighborhood
Hard Working and Relaxed In Roma Sur
Walking friendly neighborhood! You will find the wonderful Medellín Market, with a really extensive variety of products. Many local little businesses [maintain] the "barrio" atmosphere of this historic neighborhood."

Roma Sur's Sidewalk Marketplace: Cafes and Vendors
This is a great neighborhood to explore Mexico City - both the touristy places and the cool local hangouts are close by or easily accessible by public transportation or bike."
