Mexico

GETTING AROUND


GETTING THERE:

BY AIR
From the UK and EUROPE:
British Airways offers the only direct scheduled flights from the UK to Mexico. 3 times weekly (Wed,Thurs,Sun) from London Heathrow to Mexico City.
Iberia flies via Madrid or Barcelona to Mexico City and Cancun
KLM flies to Mexico City from Amsterdam
Continental and American Airlines fly to Mexico City, Merida, Cancun, Puerto Vallarta etc via the USA.

From the US:
There are flights to Mexico from virtually every American city. For the speediest connections, fly from Miami (on BA, American Airlines, or Virgin), from Houston (Continental) or Atlanta (Delta).

The cheapest high-season fares are usually on Continental or Virgin, starting at around £400. If you live close to the border, it’s easier to cross into Mexico and take an internal flight (Aeromexico and Mexicana have cheap flights to numerous destinations within Mexico).

    BY AIR: Due to the vast size of Mexico, travelling by air is a good option, especially if you have limited time. The 2 main airlines are Aeromexico and Mexicana, which fly between the larger cities. Provincial cities are served by a number of smaller airlines, such as Aerocaribe, Aerocozumel and Aviacsa. With some of the smaller airlines it may only be possible to find information in cities served by them.

    Flying in Mexico is often good value for money when compared with other forms of transport. The cheapest fares are usually for late evening flights booked 7 days in advance. Domestic flights are subject to consumer tax (15%) and an airport tax (about US$8.50). Tickets purchased in Mexico normally include taxes. If you have bought your ticket outside Mexico, you will have to pay the airport tax at check-in.

    CAR HIRE: Car hire is available in most Mexican cities, but is expensive (up to US$50/day) and not particularly cost-effective unless you’re going on a short weekend trip to somewhere more remote from a larger town. If you do rent a car, jeep-styles are best as they cope better with the jagged speed bumps. Expect to have to change a tyre at least once - due to the potholes which blight most roads. US, Canadian, British, Irish, Australian, New Zealand and most European driving licenses are valid here, but it’s a good idea to arm yourself with an international driving license.

    BY BUS: Mexico is blessed with a superb bus network - which is so good it’s made the train service obsolete. To cope with the 1st and 2nd class air-conditioned buses (many of which are overnight sleepers), four lane highways and express toll motorways have been built between all the major towns. While this makes your journey undeniably speedy, it means you won’t be seeing any of the smaller villages along the way, so bear this in mind when you plan your journey.

    As from 1997, bus companies have been allowed to come into Mexico from the States (before, they had to stop at the border) - including Greyhound, Autobuses Americanos, ADO Trailways and El Expreso.
