Transportation tips: How to get around Mexico and its destinations
Before traveling to any place, city or country, it is good to know the types of transportation you can use, whether by subway, bus or your own car, here we show you the best ways to get around in Mexico.
If you are in CDMX one of the best ways to move around the city is by subway, this means of transportation, despite being very busy during rush hours, is quite efficient and also has a very convenient value.
Mexico is a large country, in fact, is among the twenty largest in the world, so moving from one city to another involves long routes by road, for those cases, if your budget allows, it is best to make internal flights and save some time. It is not for nothing that Mexico has two of the busiest airports in Latin America, even Cancun International Airport is one of the airports that receives more tourists in the world.
Although this means spending more money, since domestic flights are even more expensive than international flights, yes, crazy.To find cheap flights you can use Skyscanner.
To move around Mexico, from city to city or within a city, you can take the different bus routes. The best of all is that they are quite cheap, of course, there are also buses more comfortable than others, so you should look carefully which one you choose, especially for long trips.
Cabs are a good way to get around in Mexico, and even more so in the cities, as they allow you to move quickly from one place to another. Of course, you have to be aware of the traffic, since sometimes even walking can get you to a place faster than traveling in a car.
Uber is an excellent way to get around a city like CDMX, although sometimes the traffic is not the most convenient, use Uber from our link.
RENT A CAR
If you want to walk on your own and make routes with friends, one of the best things you can do is rent a car and drive around Mexico to make your own route. To rent a car at the best price use Skyscanner.
If you don’t want to walk but you feel like enjoying the sunny days in the Mexican capital, one of the best ways to get around is by bike. You can rent a bike from different stations for as little as 99 MXN per day (a little less than 5 Dollars).
