Here we have listed the 10 best viewpoints in Mexico City.

So, for those who are looking for where to see sunsets in CDMX or how to see CDMX from the heights. In this list of viewpoints you will find the best options.

Top 10 Viewpoints CDMX

Torre Latino Lookout

Considered by the vast majority as the best of the CDMX viewpoints, the Mirador de la Torre Latino is the highest and most popular viewpoint in Mexico City.

This observation deck is located at the top of the Torre Latinoamericana located in the historic center of Mexico City. It offers an open-air, 360-degree view of the city.

Be prepared to look for your house or an important point in the city because the enclosure has telescopes that will allow you to find even the smallest places.

WTC Lookout (Bellini)

The CDMX World Trade Center has a restaurant and a very elegant rotating observation deck at the top of the building. This restaurant is called: The Bellini.

The best way to take advantage of this place is to visit it at night to see the city illuminated. We recommend booking in advance here: Dinner at the Bellini lookout restaurant

Torre Mayor Viewpoint

The Torre Mayor is considered the tallest building in the city at 230 meters high.

This building has an observation deck on its 42nd, 43rd and 44th floors, which, like the one in the Latin Tower, has telescopes.

This viewpoint competes in height with the Latin American tower and is one of the best options to see the CDMX from the heights.

Cost Mirador Torre Mayor

The entrance fee to this place is approximately 70 pesos for adults and 40 pesos for children and it can be accessed from Monday to Friday from 7:00 am to 10:00 pm and Saturdays and Sundays from 9:00 am to 9:00 am.

Location: Paseo de la Reforma 505, Cuauhtémoc, Cuauhtémoc.

Mirador Don Porfirio Café

Also known as the Don Porfirio café, this café and viewpoint not only has delicious desserts but also an enviable view of Bellas Artes.

The place is small but has one of my favorite views. Check out our video to get a better idea!

To enter you need to access the Sears across from Bellas Artes and go up to the 4th floor.

You can get to know it without the need for food consumption; however, I highly recommend that you take advantage of it and try some of the exotic drinks they have.

The Secret Viewpoint of the Angel of Independence

Yes, that’s what it sounds like! In case you didn’t know, this iconic monument of the city has an observation deck at the top. It offers a breathtaking view.

To access it you need to go up a rather narrow staircase that will end in a small terrace.

The Good: From there you can appreciate the famous Paseo de la Reforma avenue, an unparalleled view and access to the viewpoint is free.

The bad thing: Access is not easy, you can’t just walk in. In order to visit this viewpoint you need to request permission from the corresponding authorities (Offices of the CuathĂ©moc Delegation), schedule a day, time and write a letter of motivation.

Location: Paseo de la Reforma and Eje 2 PTE, Juårez, Cuauhtémoc. The nearest subway station is Insurgentes.

This place is probably the best viewpoint in CDMX to see the sunrise and sunset. It is very famous for the view it has at sunset; however, to appreciate this moment it is necessary to reserve and reserve with the place.

Chapultepec Castle overlook

Chapultepec Castle is actually a museum but, due to the incredible view it has, we will consider it as one of the viewpoints in CDMX.

In my opinion, the view from this castle is one of the best among all the viewpoints in the CDMX.

The panorama covers the Bosque de Chapultepec and is fascinating.

Other viewpoints in Mexico City

Cerro del Tepeyac viewpoint

The Tepeyac hill behind the famous Basilica of Guadalupe is another of the viewpoints of Mexico City that can be enjoyed; however, to make the visit worthwhile I would recommend that you also visit the Basilica of Guadalupe.

Viewpoint of Cuernavaca

I know what you’re thinking. Why is a Cuernavaca viewpoint on a list of CDMX viewpoints? The reason is simple, because the view it has is of Mexico City.

This viewpoint is located in a restaurant on top of a mountain and is famous for offering beautiful nighttime images of Mexico City.

The advantage of this viewpoint is that it is not necessary to eat at the restaurant to take pictures and enjoy the view, in fact it is not even necessary for the restaurant to be open because the parking and the view are free.

Location: Km 27.5 of the federal highway (free) to Cuernavaca.

Which is the best viewpoint in Mexico City?

Difficult decision eeh……. It will depend on each one but for me and so far, the position of the best viewpoint in Mexico City goes to …..

  1. El Mirador del Castillo de Chapultepec: For the location, the castle and the combination of nature and the city in the panoramic view.
  2. El Mirador del Café Don Porfirio (The one facing Bellas Artes)
  3. Torre Latino: for its location.
