Why fly to Mexico City?


Cuddled in the Valley of Mexico, Mexico City sits on the Trans-Mexican Volcanic belt and a peak out of the plane window provides a breathtaking image of snow-capped mountains and volcanoes that hide the city inside. Home of the Aztec people, the modern city sits on top of the ancient Aztec city of Tenochtitlan and traces of this civilization can be found in the city's architecture.

Mexico City is the largest city in the country and is divided into 16 boroughs, which are divided into several hundred neighborhoods boasting distinct features.

Head to Colonio Centro to get into the heart of old Mexico City, this is where some of the city's oldest buildings sit and is also the location of the ruins of the Great Temple of the Aztec empire.

For some of the chicest shopping and hip dining options the Roma neighborhood is the best. Spend an afternoon meandering along the quaint streets and visiting boutique galleries, followed by fusion Mexican fare.

The city is home to dozens of museums and galleries dotted throughout the city including the National Anthropology Museum and the National History Museum, which are a treasure trove of knowledge and can require a full day on the agenda.

Sure there are tacos and quesidillas but these border-hopping dishes that have gone international are but a glimmer of the delicious cuisine found in Mexico.

The capital of the country brings together cuisines from all over Mexico. Traditional indigenous fare including corn and beans has strong Spanish influences. Baracoa in Mexico is essentially the beginning of barbecue in the west. In Mexico City you can find Baracoa Pork as well as beef served up with fragrant rice and beans. Another regional dish popular in Mexico city is cabrito, which is slow-cooked goat.


Mexico City Weather


Temperatures can vary somewhat depending on the altitude of the neighborhood you are visiting, however usually the weather is quite comfortable everywhere all year long.

The city experiences heavy rainfall in the early summer lasting into October after which there is a dry spell. Temperatures on average are in the teens and hit 30 degrees in the summer and typically never fall below 0, even in the winter months. Summer does bring instances of hail.


When to fly to Mexico City


Peak season

Great weather in the city means its peak season all year long, however November through January are particularly busy as is March, July and August.

Low season

You can snap up some great deals in February as well as from September through October.


Getting into Mexico City


You will land at Mexico City International Airport which is a hubbub of activity all year long. Getting into the city center is fairly easy with several options including bus, shuttle and taxi. The Metrobus rapid transit is one of the newest and fastest ways of getting from the airport to the city center.


Getting around Mexico City


Mexico City is very walkable, especially if you are exploring the old district. However, public transport is also a great option with numerous intercity buses. You can use trolleybuses in the city center as well as a light rail line that goes to Xochimilco. The Metrobus provides high-speed access from the city center to the suburbs. The city also has a very large bike sharing system.


Insider Guide


  • Take a trip to the famed Bazar del Sabado in Plaza San Jacinoto, which is just a 10 minute drive south of the city center for a morning of antiquing.
  • For a taste of ultra modern Mexico head to Santa Fe where you will find megamalls, the Iberro Americana University as well as a large business centre which also means it has a happening after-work bar scene as well as great restaurants.
  • Street food is amazingly wonderful in Mexico City, taco stands dish up fresh flavorful delights and a torta is a delicious Mexican take on a Western sandwich.
  • Try a true Mexican mole, it will be unlike anything you've ever experienced the spicy chocolate sauce seems like a contradiction but when pulled together really creates a delicious out-of-this-world flavor.
  • Visit Xochilmico for the awesome floating gardens and canals, which almost speak of the Aztec civilization they were a part of.
