“Best views in town.”
Reviewed 5 September 2013

This is well worth the effort, especially if you're in the CBD to begin with. It only took us 5 minutes from the time of ticket purchase to the time of looking out the top level windows. There's a cafe, but I found the levels to be very dirty, so wouldn't eat the food/drinks in a pink fit.

You can spend as much time as you like, and there's enough features to look at to make it worthwhile for everyone. As I mentioned, I found it fairly dirty, and the glass could do with some regular cleaning to help the quality of your photos out!

“Understanding the city”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

A great place to go as soon as getting to DF. From the top of the building the whole city can be seen and understood. Also, it's right next to many other attractions like the Palacio de Bellas Artes and the streets that lead to Plaza Zocalo.

“Panoramic view of Mexico city”
Reviewed 14 July 2013

Pay an entrance fee of 60 pesos per adult, take two elevators to 41 levels and you are at the highest man made structure in the city. There are coin operated telescopes, if you want to see the city up close. There are chairs at the mirador, where you can relax over a smoothie or a coffee and watch the planes take off and land at the airport. On clear days, you can even see the volcano at the far end. The Mirador is the best place to get a panoramic view of the city. There is also a museum, worth visiting.

“Visit the bar and don't pay the fee”
Reviewed 9 June 2013

The Latin American Tower was the tallest building in Mexico until the 1970s. It's not quite 50 stories, but you can still get a terrific view because there are not a lot of tall buildings around Mexico City. Here's the trick- do not purchase a ticket (70 pesos) to go to the Observation Deck. Tell them you're going to the bar, which is a floor lower, and they won't charge you. At the bar, order a beer (60 pesos) or a sangria (70 pesos) or a cocktail and sit back and enjoy the view. We went on a Thursday and were the only people in the bar. There is also a restaurant, but we didn't visit it. It was a mostly-clear day, and we had great views of the entire city, and spent a while picking out landmarks, like Chapultapec, the Zocalo, etc. If you need to use the restroom, this is the place to do it. It's one floor down (just ask the hostess) and in the ladies' restroom, one stall is right next to the glass wall. A surreal experience, to say the least.

“Definitely worth a visit”
Reviewed 28 May 2013

As a budget traveler (long-term backpacker), I was hesitant to pay the 70 peso entrance fee--but in the end I was not disappointed. I had spent a solid week exploring Mexico City by metro and foot, but wasn't fully able to orient myself until I could get a birds-eye views from the top of the Torre Latino. It really puts the city and it's landmarks in perspective.

We went about an hour before sunset and stayed till darkness--witnessing the lovely sunset over the city and then seeing the city lights. Even the little free museum is cool; displaying interesting old photographs of Mexico City throughout the years and information about the construction of the tower.
