    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!

    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).

    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.

    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.

    This is the place where I start to feel at home .. this is the only airport where you can get real Mexican food, ask for the food court, just before the security line.

    Excellent place to have a great meal. Plenty of amazing options before going through security. After security not so many...

    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.

    The airport is pretty big and it can take a while to get from Terminal 1 to 2. So take your precautions. Also, big sections of the duty get closed from time to time.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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!

    Immigracion does speak English. Don't give them a hard time. Listen to their directions. Also don't take videos or pictures when close to them. Don't lose your visa. It'll cost $500.

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

    One of the most disorganized airports in the world. There's always delays and the distances are gigantic if they ever move your gate from 30 to 25. From VIP lounges to AA flight is a 20 minutes walk.

    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.

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

    You can usually bring up to 1 liter of liquor (no greater than 70% ABV) through US customs. Sometimes this is more, but it depends on the state you land in.

    Lots of great upscale shops and duty free shops in Terminal 1.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Gotta love your hometown airport. It is the gateway to the world. Grab a bite at Bistro Mosaico before getting on the plane. It is very good.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    Super long line at immigration, waited for an hour in line. Fill in the form early and rush to the front of the line. Uber to downtown is my pick for transit.

    Customs lines can be super long, as can taxi lines. Skip the latter via Uber, but head to Puerta 1 if you're in T2 to avoid a chaotic search for your driver.

    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.

    God help you if you're flying in from south America to terminal 1. It will take you 1 to 2 hours to get your luggage. They also make you use a baggage porter.

    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..
