Mexico City is a feast for the senses. This sprawling metropolis, one of the world’s most populous cities, crackles and fizzes with life. It bustles day and night with workers, tourists and revellers drawn onto the streets in search of the traditional markets, food (dishes from all Mexico’s 31 states can be savoured here), nightlife and culture.
The oldest part of the city runs out from the Zocalo, the plaza, for several blocks. This is where the Spanish started to build (on the ruins of Tenochtitlan, the capital of the Aztec Empire) modern Mexico City. There are Aztec ruins, grand Spanish colonial buildings, Baroque palaces and modern offices all within a few streets.
Mexico City’s more than 150 museums, marks it out as one of the world’s great cultural cities. There are four major museums in Chapultepec Park, including the world-famous anthropology museum and contemporary arts museum. Tourists taking cheap flights to Mexico City to follow the Frida Kahlo trail make a beeline for the museum in Coyoacan where the artist and her on-off husband, muralist Diego Rivera lived, but there are traces of the famous couple around the city.

Don’t worry about getting around in Mexico City, one of the biggest cities in the world. The public transportation system is efficient and cheap. The metro runs from 6am until midnight and is clean and easy to use. The bus system is also extensive, but you might find it easier to use if you speak Spanish. Minibuses can be a better option than buses, since they are smaller, faster and more comfortable. They can drop you off anywhere along their route. With so many people in the city, public transportation can be very crowded during rush hour. Be aware of your surroundings during rush hour and at night; crime levels are high on the subway and buses. Central Square’s cobble-stoned streets can be a lovely area to walk around. If you want to take a taxi, be safe and call ahead for one, instead of hailing a cab. Many hotels and restaurants can help you call a cab. If you’re planning on driving in the city, know that it can be a tricky place to manoeuvre and prices are high. Additionally, cars are prohibited from driving in the city one day a week. Find out which days you are restricted by checking the last number of your license plate against a list at the tourist office. When smog levels are high, as they are in December and January, numbers can come up more than once per week.
Named after Mexico’s former president, Benito Juarez International Airport, also called Mexico City International Airport (MEX) is situated in the densely populated capital, Mexico City. It is the country’s busiest airport, serving approximately 24 million passengers per year, and once renovations are complete, it will be able to handle up to 32 million passengers per year.
In spite of developments, though, Mexico City International is far from being adequate for the huge number of travellers who use it each year. This is due to the fact that it is completely surrounded by buildings, making expansion of the airfield impossible. Long queues and delays are common occurrences, which is why many travellers use Toluca Airport as an alternative.
Fortunately, however, Mexico City International offers much in the way of amenities, including a wide selection of dining and retail establishments, as well as business and conference facilities, most of which are located in Terminal 2. Terminal 1, by contrast, is old and outdated and lacks sufficient signage and lighting.
For a flight to Mexico City, you will be flying into Benito Juarez. Mexico City Benito Juarez (MEX) is just 8.9 km from the centre of the city.
