    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.

    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.

    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.

    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).

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    Outside security and beyond the air conditioned doors are awesome local food courts with great affordable Mexican food

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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 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..

    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

    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.

    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#

    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.

    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.

    There are very few places to sit besides the gates. Go all the way to the end of the corridor to find seating

    If traveling by Aeromexico use the automatic check in machines, they save you a lot of time!
