Top Local Tips for Mexico City

Survival in Mexico City One book tops the list of all the books you could read: Mexico City:An Opinionated Guide For The Curious Traveler by Jim Johnston, iUniverse,Inc,New York,2006 www.iUniverse.com. This book has it all: places to go, arrival by plane or bus,where to stay, eat, lots of non-touristy things to do. See my review of the Marco Polo Hotel, February, 2007. Air quality has increased, this is a city for the experienced traveller and street-wise and is worth it.

Take the subway! The subway in Mexico City is great. The stations are not brand new, but they are really clean (cleaner than Chicago by far). The trains are fast, convenient and easy to figure out. I never felt like anyone was going to pickpocket or rob me, but then I stayed to the main tourist areas in the center of the city. It's only 2 pesos a ride and much more interesting than sitting in a cab.There were a constant stream of salesmen moving through the cars selling things (CDs mostly), but that just made it more interesting. Where else are you going to see someone trying to sell portable tv antennas (rabbit ears) on a train? All we get in Chicago is people selling socks.

take the subway and public transportation! The cabs in mexico city are not that cheap! Try to subway, which is quite nice and very well run. Certainly as good, if not better than the subway in Chicago or New York (or London, for that matter). You'll really get around easily and save lots of money, since the fares are dirt cheap. Or try the Peseros (little buses) that run all over town. They cost 25 cents! And they come along every minute or two. You can jump on and off again ten blocks later for that much money!
