Meico City COA“Driving in Mexico City is terrible. It is congested, noisy and complicated. I would rather eat nails.
But it is a beautiful place to enjoy culture and city life. We plan our days around art galleries, exhibitions, festivals and other happening. To just walk around in an adventure. It is a world class city. An Alpha City. A place like no other.”

Dorothy Bell

Getting there:

There are many roads leading to Mexico City. If you are just driving through it without stopping you are better to drive the Arco Norte (a tolled ring road) and avoid the congestion altogether.

Remember that you are restricted by your license plate number as to when you are allowed to drive in the city.

The best strategy for entering or exiting the city is to drive on Sunday mornings when traffic is lightest.
