    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!

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
