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!

Added from a comment posted in August 2019: Updating this for those who still send snail mail in 2019. The Correos de Mexico is now closer to Sala/Hall D and is on the top floor.

    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.

    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 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. Commented Feb 28, 2013 at 2:16
  • Thank you for the update! I would like to confirm that the second floor across from hall D has the aforementioned post office. (May 2021) I bought 3 post card stamps to send to the USA for 35 pesos. Commented May 25, 2021 at 16:13

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. Commented Feb 21, 2013 at 0:13

Confirming in 2024 I was able to buy postage and mail postcards from "Correos de México" in Terminal 1, just inside where cars can drop off . Closest door is Puerta 2. The location of the post offices inside the airport are accurate on google maps, it looks like there are 3 of them. They are outside the security checkpoints.

The credit card reader was down while I was there (she verified this by showing me the credit card reader and it didn't have any power), but luckily they took US dollars. $6 US to mail 6 international postcards to the United States. I had exact change.

Hardly anyone spoke English. That year of high school Spanish came in clutch!
