How to Get to Mexico City
Most people travel to Mexico City by airplane, gliding in at the Benito Juárez International Airport (also known as the Mexico City International Airport). Once you’ve landed, the subway is easy to take from both terminals of the airport. Other options include the Metro bus and secure taxis—be sure to research taxi companies before taking any taxi. The safest options include Turismo and sitio taxis. Mexico City also offers “women and children only” city buses. Renting a car is not recommended due to concerns of theft and high cost. Similar to New York City’s boroughs, Mexico City features 16 delegaciones that are divided into neighborhoods. Knowing which neighborhood your destination is can be helpful when navigating your way around the city.
