History meets modernization in San Miguel Chapultepec, a seemingly sleepy labyrinth of tree-lined streets, snaking highways, stately homes, and decrepit buildings. Its contrasts are exactly what convince artists to move to San Miguel, while its convenient location near Paseo de la Reforma attracts professionals to the area. Add to its peculiar attributes its perfect location on the border of Mexico City’s most majestic park and you too might find your feet on the path to San Miguel.See 20 places to stay Save this neighborhood
