Peak Season:

The holiday periods of Semana Santa (Easter week) and Christmas to New Year are particularly busy with Mexicans visiting the cities as well as tourists. Book flights to Mexico City and hotel accommodations for the area in advance.

Off Season:

With its mild climate, you will be hard pressed to find an off season in Mexico City. For fewer crowds, visiting during a non-holiday period is the best bet and cheap flights to Mexico City are likely.

Overview

If Cancun is the social destination of Mexico, then Mexico City is the cultural center of the country. Mexico City is the capital of Mexico, seat of government for the country and the center of finance and the arts. Tourists booking flights to Mexico City land in the country’s heartbeat, where more than 20 million occupy the land making it one of the most populous cities in the world.

Mexico City is trendy and still coming into its own. While Mexico City makes changes to move forward in the 21st century, it also stays steadfast to its Aztec heritage. Mexico City tourists will find themselves immediately immersed in antiques and artifacts dating back centuries, and then enjoy fine dining at one of the world-class restaurants in the city center. Visitors will find affordable and recognizable restaurants, a bustling nightlife and enchanting museums. Cheap flights to Mexico City and discount hotels and accommodations are just as available as first-class seats and five-star resorts.

Mexico City, Mexico climate

Because of its high altitude, Mexico City has pleasant summers and mild winters. May is the warmest month with temperatures reaching the low 80s (Fahrenheit), and January is the coolest with temperatures generally in the 60s and 70s, but night frosts are possible. The rainy season is June to September with July getting the most rain. February is the driest month.December and January also have the most smog, although the pollution levels are improving.

Getting around Mexico City, Mexico

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 maneuver 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.  

Mexico City, Mexico Travel Information

  • The city lies on the ruins of Tenochtitlan, the ancient Aztec capital. There are ghosts of the past at every turn: the Mexican National Palace is built on the site of Montezuma’s Palace, while the Metropolitan Cathedral is built on the Temple of the Aztecs.
  • The city has two UNESCO World Heritage sites. The Historic Center has the Metropolitan Cathedral and National Palace, and the Palace of Fine Arts is home to many of the city’s cultural events. Xochimilco Ecological Park is the other World Heritage site. It is made up of canals, lagoons and floating gardens and is often called the Venice of Mexico. A trip on a trajinera, a square-shaped, brightly painted boat, which carries up to 12 passengers, is a treat. It is possible to hire a floating mariachi band to serenade you too.
  • The Basilica de Guadalupe is in the north of the city and very popular. Only St Peter’s Basilica in Rome gets more visitors each year.
  • The Coyoacan and San Angel areas have great craft markets, while Santa Fe and Polanco offer a more upmarket shopping experience.
  • One of the best places to admire the city is from Bellini, the revolving restaurant on the 45th floor of the World Trade Center.
  • Teotihuacan is Mexico’s most popular archaeological site. Tourists can climb up the Pyramid of the Sun, the world’s third-largest pyramid, and its companion, the Pyramid of the Moon.
  • The world’s largest bullring is here too – the Plaza de Toros.
  • Chapultepec Park is an enormous green park – more than 2,000 acres – in the center of the city. It is home to the National Museum of Anthropology, the Museum of Modern Art, the National History Museum and Museum Rufino Tamayo.

Mexico City, Mexico airport overview

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 travelers 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 travelers 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.
