"Metro in Mexico City" Mexico Transportation Tip by filipdebont

Mexico Transportation: 192 reviews and 117 photos

  avoid rush hours
by filipdebont

Some guidebooks say that it is unsafe using the Metro in Mexico City. Anyway it is a cheap way of travelling (2 pesos for a ride), and very efficient if you have to travel from one end of the city to the other end. Maybe it is best, to avoid the rush hours, because then it is too crowded, but anyway even outside rush hours, you'll never been alone, just be careful, carry your day-backpack in front of you, keep your wallet in a safe place, and leave all valuable documents in a safe in your hotel.

Type: Subway/Metro

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
