My first trip to Mexico City was about 2 years ago and ever since then, I had been yearning to go back. MLK weekend was the perfect time to go and after a short 3 hour flight, I found myself back in CDMX. I shared a lot of the trip via Instagram Stories (peep the “CDMX” highlight on my IG profile) and per quite a few requests, a separate post will be made to share all the sights we saw.

To sum things up, I need to plan a 3rd trip back because it’s that amazing. A large part of it is because of where we stayed. The trip was booked spontaneously and upon a quick Google search, I came across Ryo Kan and knew I had to stay there. It’s a Japanese oasis in the heart of Mexico City, with its own onsen on the rooftop of the hotel. The decor left me speechless and I couldn’t stop taking photos every time we returned back to our home base. A neutral color palette really has a calming effect and was so aesthetically pleasing. Ryo Kan was the perfect retreat after spending the day out and about in a bustling city. The attention to detail is remarkable and I was left feeling zen every time I stepped foot inside of it.

Breakfast was served every morning, whether we wanted to dine in our room or out in the courtyard. Complimentary coffee and tea was available 24 hours a day. We took full advantage of the rooftop onsen (tip: bring a swimsuit!) and un-winded after a long day. The staff was friendly, helpful and housekeeping left our room meticulously spotless. The entire experience has left me with a burning desire to return. If you are looking to book a vacation, I highly recommend paying Mexico City and Ryo Kan a visit. They go hand in hand and I couldn’t have imagined a better place to stay during my trip.
