Mexico City International Airport (airport code MEX), also known as Benito Juarez International Airport and AICM for its Spanish acronym, is in Mexico’s capital city and is one of the busiest airports in the world. It is certainly the largest and busiest in Latin America. A recent attempt to build a second airport to serve Mexico City was halted in favor of renovating and expanding the existing airport, so this already enormous airport is only going to get bigger. Mexico City’s airport serves as a hub for Aero California, Mexicana, Aviacsa, Aeromar, Lineas Aereas Azteca and AeroMexico.

More Information on Mexico City

First of all, Mexico City is huge. It is huge and it is crowded. So instead of thinking about visiting the entirety of this gigantic metropolis, think of it in terms of visiting its various districts and neighborhoods. You will be much happier. You are likely to spend most of your time in the Federal District, so just limiting your plans to that might be of some help. Oh, and remember to save some energy when you are done sight seeing and just dealing with big-city stresses, because Mexico City’s nightlife is almost as big as the city itself.
