All the right ingredients for a fascinating getaway can be found in Mexico City. As one of the largest metropolitan areas in the world, the capital of Mexico features many exciting attractions such as museums, archaeological sites, historical buildings and bustling markets to occupy a visitor for days. If you live in the New York area, you can easily reach LaGuardia Airport (LGA) via public transport. The airport provides international flights to and from Mexico City on a regular basis. A direct flight from New York can land you in Mexico City in as little as five hours.
Getting around Mexico City is fairly easy thanks to public transportation. A swift, extensive and incredibly cheap subway system covers most of the metropolis, with frequent round-the-clock service. Take a hike up the Iztaccihuatl Volcano, Mexico’s third highest mountain, for a nature-filled day of adventure.
For the extreme sports enthusiast, the Ajusco Mountain has ATV routes that will provide you with an action-packed experience surrounded by nature. Kids are sure to love the Papalote Children's Museum where everything is a hands-on exhibit. If you are a history or anthropology buff, take a day trip to investigate the ancient city of Teotihuacan where some of the oldest pyramids in the world reside.
Benito Juarez International Airport (MEX) is the second busiest airport in all of Latin America. Once you arrive, there are two immigration terminals, so be sure to select the one that indicates arrivals from North America. The best time to visit Mexico City is between April and May, when the weather averages in the high 70s.
