No matter where your flight to Mexico lands – from Cancun to Tijuana – tourists are greeted by friendly faces.

Nearly 100 million people call Mexico home – 22 million of them live in Mexico City, the capital of Mexico – but even with the vast amounts of people residing here there is one innate quality: in Mexico, everybody takes life a little bit easier. Those who visit Mexico regularly will agree that once you’re here it’s inevitable not to slow down. So before boarding the flight to Mexico, take a deep breath and relax. Once the plane to Mexico lands, grab a cerveza and join the festivities.

Getting around Mexico

 

For getting around on your own, walking or renting a car or moped are popular options.

Mexico has more 20 airports, which makes getting from one part of the country to another easy. Domestic flights are cheap and reliable.

Mexican cities and resorts typically have public transportation and taxis. Check before you go to find out what is best at your destination. For example: Cancun has a popular city-bus system. There are also private buses, but they charge far more than the city buses. Puerto Vallarta’s city buses are easy to use, inexpensive, and can take you to most locations. However, stay away from buses named Rambo, Terminator, etc. They don’t always stop for pedestrians, and they frequently have accidents that result in fatalities. In Cozumel getting to some of the hotels and the beaches requires transportation. Cozumel has a strong cabbies’ union and the fares are set (there’s no bargaining). Mexico City has an extensive public transportation system, lots of taxis, and a problem with crime.
