In the 1990s, the Mexican government set out to create an ultra-modern business district, much like  La Défense   in Paris. In the decades that followed, Santa Fe skyrocketed in business, population, and culture. With major international companies based there, it was no wonder that both young professionals and foreigners were drawn to this business hub. The best of all? Each Casai unit in Santa Fe has private workspaces that can be reserved in advance. Work and enjoy  from the comfort of your building!

2/5: La Mexicana park a few steps from your apartment

3/5: All your essentials within walking distance

When living in any urban center, day or weekend trips outside the city limits are very important. Fortunately, Santa Fe is very well positioned, just 30 minutes from Los Leones Desert and less than two hours from  Valle de Bravo . Whether you need and enjoy a bit of nature, hiking, or just a change of scenery, Santa Fe is an unbeatable base for exploration.
