Mexico is the political, economic and cultural capital of Mexico.
Mexico City’s metropolitan area is one of the largest urban areas in the world with over 20 million population. It hosts about 100,000 events per year, one in every 6 minutes, including the GP Mexico Formula 1.
It is the 18th richest city in the world (2nd in Latin America behind São Paulo). If Mexico City were a country, it would have the 40th largest GDP.
- Santa Fe is the newest and fastest growing district of Mexico City. You will be in a nice modern business neighborhood, but be aware of the hazards of a huge city.
- Walking alone in the streets during the late hours of night is not recommended.
- Avoid wearing expensive jewelry and watches.
- You can hire taxis from the hotels for getting around in the city. They are relatively expensive but safe. A cheaper alternative is UBER (no cash payment) which works extremely well in Mexico City. Any restaurant can arrange for taxis to the hotels. Make sure that you do not flag down cabs in the street as they are not safe.
- Make sure that you always have on you the address and telephone phone number of your hotel.
- Answer telephone calls only from people you know. In very rare occasions you may receive telephone calls in your hotel room from unknown persons. Do not continue the conversation even if it may seem serious and urgent, Simply hung up.
