Any travel tips for Mexico City?

I'll be traveling by myself to Mexico City in June, staying there 4 nights and 3 days. I've never been there before but have traveled alone for a similar length of time in Spain and Italy. I'm working on learning Spanish and looking for some advice on what to do/see and how to get there. [more inside]

Off to Mexico City! What's cool?

Hola!, The wife and I are off to Mexico city during the week of July 4th. We've got reservations at Pujol and... not much else! We're fairly adventurous travelers and while my Spanish ends at 'Si', hers is close to fluent. We like to eat, are big frequenters of Atlas Obscura and don't mind a little discomfort if it leads to adventure. What's the coolest stuff in Mexico City? (And, perhaps, what should we look out for?)

Any American Expat bars to watch the election in Mexico City?

Hello, I will be in Mexico City next week and I’m trying to find an American expat bar that will be showing the coverage of the election. I’d prefer a place skewed towards younger people if possible. I got to watch the last election in an expat bar in Buenos Aires and it was quite an event. If anybody can help me out I would really appreciate it. Thanks!

Mexico City and beyond with children?

My family is traveling to Mexico City in August for a 10 day vacation. It will be myself, my wife, and our three boys - ages 5 years, 3 years and 8 months. We're planning to spend four days in Mexico City, two near Teotihuacan, and the rest is to be determined. What are your recommendations? Is there another side trip after Teotihuacan we should consider spending 2-3 days at before flying home? [more inside]

Short trip to Mexico City, ideas welcome!

Yay! I have a short (4 days) visit coming up to Mexico city, leaving next week. I've got one day marked for Teotihuacan and another day for the National Museum of Anthropology and other museums in that area. That leaves two days with little to no plans, any mefites with experience in the DF who could share their must do's? Also, I am staying in Zona Rosa, planning on using the metro as much as possible for transport.

Mexican Airport Misery: Aeromexico VS Air Canada

Due to a late departure, various snafus in the Mexico City airport, and some extremely unhelpful and unsympathetic ground personnel, our recent trip from Acapulco (Aeromexico) to Toronto (Air Canada) via Mexico City turned into an expensive nightmare. I have googled various keywords, checked out several FlyerTalk forums and gone through similar MF threads, but I haven't located anything remotely helpful. I am hoping the hive mind can help suggest how to seek compensation. Unhappy details below the fold: [more inside]

Suggestions for what to do on a 12-hour layover in Mexico City?

I have an upcoming trip that includes a stopover from about 6AM to late evening in MEX. We'll be traveling with a 3-year-old, so we will probably spend the first few hours trying to get some sleep at an airport hotel. I'm wondering if anyone has an idea for something to do with the rest of the day that won't cause a lot of stress about making it back for our flight? I've never been to Mexico City. What are the usual tourist attractions? Is traffic so bad that we could only fit in something really quick and nearby? Is it even worth it to leave the airport area? Thanks!

How amazing of an experience would a quick trip to Mexico City be?

I have a relative who will be on a business trip to Mexico City for about 10 days in March, and I am very tempted to go down there for a few days and visit. However I am also concerned about the number of vacation days I will be burning up as I already have two other short trips on the books for March. I've been curious to see D.F. (Mexico City) for a long time. We would be staying in the heart of downtown, in the shopping/financial district, close to the huge urban park and a bunch of museums. [more inside]
