OK it's easy to get the 180 days if you know when to ask and you ask, otherwise you will get whatever number of days depending on what the officers are told to give based on whatever unknown criteria. The very first person you see and show any paperwork to after you deboard and claim your luggage is the person to ask. They will very likely not tell you that ...

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! Post office at Terminal 1, domestic ...

Don't know of a single person that's had a problem on the subway/metro. You grab it from Terminal 1, it's 5 pesos. Almost everyone that works at the airport takes this bus into the city. Foreign travelers forget that not everyone that goes to the airport takes a limo. Some people like the #4 metrobus because it has security surveillance and usually an ...

At Mexico City Airport, if you are just connecting to an onwards destination, your baggage would be checked in for it's final destination if it's an international one. Otherwise you will have to collect it and pass through customs. However you'll have to check if the airline has any restrictions. You can do that while booking your flight or by calling up ...

I took (pretty much) that exact trip last week at a bit later time, and didn't feel the slightest bit in danger. The metro is crowded with all kinds of normal folks. You can't beat 5 pesos for transportation that far, and it shouldn't vary much with traffic etc. You should be able to get a seat for many of the stops since the University is at the end of the ...

Believe me, you have better odds of being safe in the Metro than taking a taxi/metrobus and it will be faster & cheaper than any of the other options. You can get around by taking one of the regulated taxis as @hippietrail suggests, however in Mexico City you HAVE to take the metro at some point, so there's pretty much two options: take it now or take it ...

Since you haven't told us where you are, I'll assume you're somewhere else within or near by Mexico City. Your best bet will be a taxi. Public transport (buses and trains) don't start until 4:30am or later: Metro (trains) Monday thru Friday from 5:00 to 24:00 hrs. Saturdays 6:00 to 24:00 hrs. Sundays and Holidays 7:00 to 24:00 hrs. ...

I just did this a couple weeks ago. As the airport map shows, there are a ton of ATMs in terminal 1 as you come out of customs, from many different banks. Each of them may charge a slightly different fee, but I had absolutely no trouble finding a working one. You have a lot of options. The ATMs in the airport terminal are all quite official looking, built ...

This is of course a question which is probably answerable best by experience, but since I think something is always better than nothing, here's a list of all the currency exchanges (In Spanish) on Benito Juarez Airport. There is also an interactive map on the airport website which shows a list of banks and currency exchanges. They are mostly nearby, so I ...
