Aeropuerto Internacional de la Ciudad de México

The international airport of Ciudad de México (MEX) is named after Mexican president Benito Juárez and has one specialty: it is very close to the city and only 6.5 kilometers afar from the Zócalo. The airport was opened in 1931, has two runways and two terminals (terminal 1 is for international flights, terminal 2 for domestic and local flights). If you have tickets for a connecting flight you can change between both terminals using a train that is running around the airport.

The Aeropuerto Internacional de la Ciudad de México is the most important airport of Latin America and belongs to the top 30 airports worldwide. Changes are high that you pass here if you want to get to Central America. The airport is connected by metro to the outside world but taking the metro was a pain because of the high amount of users, the non-functional facilities and the many steps to climb. Better go for an Uber car or a taxi to make the thirty minutes to the city center.

If you need to stay overnight in CDMX, there are two hotels within the airport. But the best option is to leave the airport and stay at the close-by Fiesta Inn, a nice hotel next to the airport. In the arrival halls the hotel operates offices in which you can request a free of charge transfer to the hotel. Great service!
