Traveling To Mexico City Benito Juarez Airport MEX

Mexico City Benito Juarez International Airport MEX (AICM) services the capital city of Mexico as well as nearby areas. AICM is one of the largest airports in Latin America, and it brings travelers to and from one of the largest metropolitan areas on planet earth. Serving 41.7 million passengers in 2016 alone, AICM's passenger count is continuing to grow each year. Due to the inability to expand outward in its densely populated area, a new airport is under construction to provide even better options to travelers.

Benito Juarez Airport is conveniently located between Mexico City and Nezahualcoyotl, surrounded by a road system for easy access. As the main hub for Aeromexico, Mexico's biggest airline, and the secondary center for Aeromexico Connect & Mexicana, AICM offers a number of domestic and international airlines for passengers to choose from. Whether Mexico City is your final destination, home, or just a stop along your journey, you will join the millions of flyers who have passed through its gates.

Mexico City has neverending entertainment options for visitors. With a rich history and cultural institutions, there's something for everyone to enjoy Must-see Mexico City attractions include:

  • Museo Nacional de Antropologia
  • Teotihuacan
  • Catedral Metropolitana
  • Palacio Nacional
  • Museo Frida Kahlo
  • Bosque de Chapultepec
  • Templo Mayor

While Mexico city is a great visit any time of the year, between March and May visitors can experience near-perfect weather. This is one of the busiest times to visit the city, but definitely one of the most rewarding. There are numerous events and festivals during this time, including Cinco de Mayo and Semana Santa, which visitors won't want to miss out on.

Mexico City is packed full of sights to see and things to do. While this makes it difficult to see all of the city during one visit, this only means visitors have to return again to see more. As one of the liveliest and largest cities in the world, Mexico City offers travelers an unforgettable experience.

Getting Around Mexico City

There are a variety of options for traveling around Mexico City, and passengers who land at MEX can book private transportation and tourist buses ahead of time, find a taxi, or take the Metrobus, which offers cheap fares and a number of routes.

You will likely see a number of red double-decker Turibuses after arriving in Mexico City, which may remind you of the iconic double deckers in London. These tourist buses are a popular option among sightseers, but just one of the many transportation options available to you.

You can recognize the public Metrobus by its distinctive red and white coloring, yet you should expect these buses to be crowded, especially if you board from MEX. You can purchase smartcards for a handful of pesos, but taxis may provide a more reliable and convenient option instead.

In fact, most travel guides advise international travelers arriving in Mexico City to take official taxis, which are easy to board from the arrivals terminal. There will be signs directing travelers to the taxi boarding zones, and you can even pre-pay according to your destination.

Authorized taxi services at MEX include:

  • Yellow Cab Aeropuerto
  • Transfers-USA
  • Porto Taxi
  • Sitio 300
  • Excelencia

While you can also access the subway from Terminal 1, this may not be an ideal option for travelers who only speak English, are traveling with children, or who have a number of bags to carry.
