Back in February of this year we had a quick little three-night trip to Mexico City, colloquially known as DF (Distrito Federal). This was our second time to visit DF, the last time we were there was for a month back in early 2012. The weather this time of year is consistently dry with warm days and comfortably cool evenings.
All photos in the post are taken by iPhone 4. Next time I will share better photos from early 2012, taken with an actual camera.
Arrival at MEX (Benito Juárez International Airport) is surprisingly easy. Once you leave the secure area, after clearing immigration and customs, there are a number of authorized taxi companies with service desks located within the airport. Their rates and services are all similar but ‘Excelencia’ and ‘Nueva Imagen’ were recommended to us by a local and we have used both without any issues or complaints. Flat-rate airport transfers to the center (Condesa, Roma, Zona Rosa, Reforma) are around $15 US with the authorized airport taxis.
