A very specific question this time:
Is it possible to buy and send a postcard somewhere within Benito Juárez International Airport?

If so, where in the airport can I find a post office or mailbox? Terminal 1 would be preferable in my case.

Correos de México, run by Sepomex, is the national postal service if you're sending a postcard. They have an office in the domestic arrivals area of Terminal 1. Walk to the planta baja (ground floor) and look for the pink sign in Sala/Hall A, close to Puerta 2 — they sell color postcards there too. Happy Travels!

Thanks! Found it; sent 'em. Terminal 1, domestic arrivals, Hall A, close to Puerta 2. It's indeed pink, but is labeled Correos de México, not Sepomex. (I'm editing you're answer slightly.) Here's what the place looked like last Friday. – Jonik Feb 27 '13 at 21:46
Cost of sending a card to Europe was 14 pesos. Pro tip: you can find somewhat cheaper postcards (10-14 pesos) at a small bookstore, not far at all, to the right of the post office. – Jonik Feb 27 '13 at 21:48
@Jonik Thanks for the picture add, I had a "dammit I should've took a photo" moment. Yeah, there's also some in the tuck shops too, but I couldn't remember how much they were. – Stephen P. Feb 28 '13 at 2:16

There are at least two mail / courier centers at the airport:

  • Aeroflash - Terminal 1, lower level (PB)

  • Sepomex - Terminal 1, lower level (PB

Aeroflash is a courier service like UPS. I'm sure they'll ship a postcard, but it may be excessively expensive. – Stephen P. Feb 21 '13 at 0:13
