Transportation to and from the Mexico City Airport
By taxi: There are authorized taxi stands inside the airport where you can buy a ticket to your destination (look for the stands that say “Transporte Terrestre” and then proceed outside to the taxi line to catch the taxi. I paid 225 Mexican Peso – $12.

TEOTIHUACAN PYRAMIDS & GUADALUPE SHRINE
First, I took a taxi to Terminal Central del Norte also known as the Autobuses del Norte metro station. Then, I turned left and I walked towards Gate 8 at the end of the hallway and I found the bus company called Autobuses Teotihuacan.
The bus fare to the Pyramids (Los Piramides) of Teotihuacan is 100 pesos ($6) round-trip or 50 pesos one-way ($3) which is pretty cheap. I bought a round-trip bus ticket.
The journey from Autobuses del Norte bus station to Teotihuacan is about an hour with various roadside pickups along the way.
The bus stops at the front entrance of Teotihuacan where everyone will need to get off and pay the entrance fee (57 pesos – $4,5)
It’s a public and the oldest park in downtown Mexico City.
PALACIO DE BELLAS ARTES
It’s a prominent cultural center in Mexico City
This is the street that leads you to the entrance of the Templo Mayor. I loved to walk around the street because it has a lot of option for everybody. There are small museums and restaurants for all types of budgets. Also, it is pretty close to the Central Historico.
The Templo Mayor
It was the main temple for the Mexicas, the rulers of the Aztec Empire, destroyed in the 1520s when the Spanish came to murder and conquer. The Spanish razed it to build the Metropolitan Cathedral over its remains, and Mexico City’s historic center was more or less built over the old city center of Tenochtitlan. Then the remains just sat there, rumored but undiscovered, until the late 20th century. Excavation didn’t start until 1978.
ZOCALO: HISTORIC CENTER OF Mexico City
Home to historic landmarks dating from as far back as the Aztec era, Centro Historico is the city’s beating heart. Centered around the massive Zócalo plaza.
Located in the heart of Mexico City, Chapultepec Castle is a historic site and local landmark. It offers a commanding view of the sprawling city. The entrence costs $64 MXN ($4)
THE ANGEL OF INDEPENDENCE
It is a victory column on a roundabout on the major thoroughfare of Paseo de la Reforma in downtown Mexico City.
