Cantinflas Mexico City

Cantinflas – Meet an icon

One of my favourite streets in Mexico City is Alvaro Obregón Avenue at Colonia Roma Norte. It is always so full of life and many new things to do. And as if that weren’t enough, in front of the hospital of this main street (Hospital Obregón) you can hang out with Cantinflas’ statue.

Cantinflas was a famous Mexican actor, distinguished by his performance in circuses, cinemas and theaters. Charles Chaplin expressed his full admiration for the work of Cantinflas. Charles Chaplin even intended to shoot a movie with him, but it never materialized.

If you’re still reading me, I will give you the best secret. This is not just any secret, this the best advice if you want to seduce your date. Ready??? So basically if you push the statute, you can make it spin! This may sound silly but not so many people know that our beloved Cantiflas is interactive.
