Encuentro Oceanía Shopping Center

Encuentro Oceanía is a major shopping center opened only in 2021. Just off Metro Line B, it’s super easy to arrive to from the Metro Romero Rubio station. In fact, it’s also but a 7-minute taxi ride, or roughly a 20-minute walk from Metro Terminal Aérea, too.

The shopping center is best-known for being anchored by Mexico’s first IKEA home decorating and furnishings store. There are also a supermarket, multiplex cinema, and about 200 retail stores. At 75,000 square metres for the entire complex, it’s no small potatoes.

The indoor-outdoor design of the complex was completed mostly by Estudio Lemus Architects. They did similar work on the Encuentro Fortuna shopping center, not terribly far away. The studio website lists multiple other projects in Mexico City. Here, the extensive patios are doubly appreciated for the area’s otherwise crowded urban environment.

The Encuentro Oceanía development may signal the continuing expansion of the larger Lindavista shopping district. Historically limited to the smaller northern neighborhood, the trend seems to see a few major shopping centers in every part of Mexico City.

Here, visitors get a nice mix of fashion forward with outlet and discount stores. Flat-pack furniture may not be at the top of priorities for international visitors, but it’s a great environment nontheless.

Hours: Daily 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
