From Mexico City Benito Juárez International Airport, you can take Cto. Interior to the city center, which will take you around 19 minutes to cover the 6 miles. An alternative route in times of heavy traffic is the Eje 2 Nte. From the German Centre at Santa Fe, you can take the Avenue Constituyentes to the city center, which is around 11 miles and takes 32 minutes in normal traffic conditions.

The Hotel Krystal Grand is only 2 miles from the city center on the Paseo de la Reforma.
Federal Highway 85 is the major route from Mexico City to the US, while Federal Highway 57 connects the city to Piedras Negras. The city's major ring road is the Anillo Periferico (peripheral ring). It is important to remember that Mexico City operates a congestion relief system. This means that access to the city is restricted at certain times of day according to the last digit on your number plate. Parking around the city varies between 12 to 18 pesos per hour, with some hotels also offering parking deals. On-street parking meters usually charge around 10 pesos per hour.


Mexico City is a huge urban center and the largest city in North America. It is built on a dried lake bed and is surrounded on three sides by towering mountains. The Plaza de la Constitucion,also known locally as the Zocalo, is at the center of the Centro Historico. It is one of the largest city squares in the world and is the focal point for some of the city's most important buildings. One of these is La Catedral, which is the largest cathedral anywhere in the Americas and has an amazing solid gold alter. The Basílica de Guadalupe, meanwhile, is regarded as the most holy catholic site in the Americas and attracts pilgrims from all over the world. Coyoacan is the city's arts district and was home to Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera. Plaza Garibaldi-Mariachi is the place for pavement cafes and street entertainers and has pop up cocktail stands in the evening. For the best views of the city, visit the observation decks of the Torre Latinoamericana or the newer and even taller Torre Mayor.
