Santa María la Ribera was one of the first planned “modern” colonias, or suburbs within the city, and its history is visible from its streets, where old mansions intersect with abandoned buildings. Still a little rough around the edges, it’s on the verge of gentrification. Start at the center, at Alameda Park’s Kiosco Morisco (where on Sundays you can find elderly couples taking cumbia dance lessons), and make your way around the quiet side streets that wind out from there.
