One of my favorite things about being based in San Francisco is the short flight proximity to so many different adventures! A 90-minute flight in any direction can transport you to the welcoming waters of sunny soCal, the earthy green forests of Oregon or the dry, deep deserts of Nevada, on any given weekend.
If you’re looking for an incredibly historical and edgy destination with world-class leisure on a value budget, Mexico City deserves a spot high on your list.
Most people’s reactions when I told them I was going to Mexico City solo after my recent Riviera Maya retreat fell somewhere between “I’m sorry, can you repeat that?” and “Girl, you’re crazy”… which is exactly why I wanted to go.
After spending 7 days solo in Mexico City (AKA Distrito Federal or D.F., as I came to learn), I am proud to exclaim that I had an incredible time and would highly recommend it for solo female travelers who don’t mind carrying a little extra awareness, in exchange for a lot of awesome experiences.
