    If you want to switch between terminals, use the Aerotren, a train between terminals. Consider 6 minutes for the ride, max waiting time is 12 minutes.

    Transportation between terminal 1 and 2 is very good (aerotren) and Metro at terminal at terminal 1 help to move to downtown so fast.

    It is the worst airport I've ever been, everything takes too long. The only good thing is the people that works here, they are very kind people.

    Minus the dirty bathroom, this was one of the better airport experiences I've had.. people moved through baggage claim and immigrations fast enough and the security is much friendlier then in the USA.

    Instead of buying coffee in Starbucks, you should try buying it in the place where Mexicana used to be. It's a really good coffee and you would be supporting them.

    French Quesadillas and mushroom tacos are great option but not a good service!!!

    Need a Taxi? Don't take the first option, walk a little to exit #10 and there are more options all at the same price.

    Make sure you do put your liquids in a ziplock bag. After healthrow its one of the most stringent security at airports I've see lately

    International services moved quickly, but you should print out information about where you want to go next -- I couldn't get wifi to work. Baggage claim took forever where it was VERY warm at midnight

    Of you're coming from a domestic flight to an international one or vice versa, be aware you may have to change terminals. Train between terminals is free with itinerary.

    A little hectic but if you need a quick bite, there's a fast food court. The Iberia lounge has a nice relaxation room with couches.

    for connecting flights avoid the Iine, get out of and go straight to the second floor. Keep clothes at hand. Some bags are Delayed up to a week.

    If you are flying from terminal two, make sure that you have enough time to check in. Mainly aeromexico will take 40min to check your bags in#

    Noisy airport , slow service at duty free, no prices on the bottles of tequila you have to constantly ask, police think to be super heroes and instead of arresting narcos they harass normal citizens

    Currency exchange: its worth the walk to the gates A on the outside part. The prices are better! Up to 20 to 40 pesos more per dollar. I recommend Cie Bank. The most safe and serious of all.

    There are 2 ways to access the national gates in terminal 1. The fastest is on the second floor of the zone marked as "A".

    If you are hungry and have a few minutes to spare, remember that the best restaurants are located outside of the security area.

    The airport is divided in 2, both of them has national and international flights, so keep an eye on your time and scheldule, you may get the airtrain so you can get to you correct gate and terminal!

    Be prepared for long lines at check-in if you don't have preferred status, but the security lines are generally very fast. The lounges are also very good.

    Service at airline counters is mostly bad. Parking is next to impossible (on the bad side), and there's something in the air that reeks (seems like sewage).

    Every time I transit here they manage to confiscate some random item from my hand luggage at the security check. This time it was an extremely dangerous aluminum tortillera. #pinchependejos

    From the mysterious remains of the pre-Hispanic towns right in the city’s heart you can go to the colonial era with its endless temples and beautiful houses of red volcanic rock. A perfect stroll!

    The locals definition of 'not spicy' means you'll need a fire truck to put out the fire in your mouth after the first bite. It's all good though..

    Very bad WiFi for an international airport. Ask everywhere, even the candy shop, if they have a connection to try to get access. And save the passwords.

    If you're here in winter, make sure you have your coat on you. It's very cold at night! Also be prepared to get randomly searched.

    Take the metro in Terminal 1 at the end of Gate 1. From Terminal 2, take the free SkyTrain to Terminal 1. It's only 5 pesos to get to the city center on the metro.

    If you have a connection here, be prepared to run. The employees from the airport are no able to give you the right information and you might lose your flight.

    one world fqtv folks: if you like a lounge all for yourself, pick Iberia lounge on the first floor instead the American Airlines Lou ge, Iberia has only two flights a day and the lounge even has beds.

    Check for your inmigration card at least a day before you leave, because if your flight is very early in the morning the inmigration office opens untill 7am work days, 8am weekends.

    7eleven's coffee is the same as Starbucks but with better price :-). And, who will care if you have a cheaper coffee if no one knows you? Jeje

    the iberia lounge beats the AA lounge by a small margin; united slightly better; but still very sad places; and restaurants / shopping also not very existent... do not get here too early.

    The Internet username is starbucks@infinitummovil and the password is mocha12. I don't know how often they change it but I think every store gives you a different user and pass if you buy something.

    Huge airport. Numerous place to plug in your computer/smartphone. One more thing: you can find some free wifi connections (international and national departures).

    After security the cheapest place for quick snacks food and water is actually the 7-11! Almost half of what the other little shops charge. Keep your eyes peeled though it's easy to miss.

    Please pardon the appearance. Our government is still figuring out how to have a world class arrival area (But do not be fooled: our country is much more beautiful than this terminal 1).

    Awkward situation when everybody is leaving from a long flight, as u leave the airplane, mexican police checks on you with dogs smelling your bags. Airport also charges you 10 pesos to use a trolley.

    Keep the immigration form they give you when you fly in! You will spend an hour paying a 300 peso fine if you lose it, and since they only ask for it when you are boarding, you may miss your flight.

    Metro is outside Puerto 1 in Terminal 1. Extremely cheap, quick & safe transport to anywhere in the city. You can take Aerotrain / Bus from Terminal 2 (Bus outside Peurto 4). Few signs for Metro.

    When you arrive and pass immigration, make sure you go to the right area for your baggage, because there are different exits for South American flights to North American, European and Asian flights

    All the baggage of travelers from South and Central America is thoroughly inspected by trained anti-drug dogs. Immigration could be fast but waiting for the baggage could take around one hour.

    If you need to take a taxi from the airport, check prices in various stands - prices can vary by more than 100%. (!) The stands located further from airport gates tend to be cheaper.

    At Medas you can get free wifi password if you buy something, better than Telmex's stupid "free" Internet for 15 minutes.

    The Metro is the most convenient mode of public transport to and from the airport. Alight at Terminal Aérea on Line 5 (yellow line). The station is 100m away from Terminal 1.

    T2: Wait until outside baggage pick-up (outside termimal) to buy Taxi ticket, allows you to identify Taxi company with no line before purchasing.
