I’m really excited to interview Alex Veka of Vibe Adventures about Mexico City, Mexico. Alex’s tips for the best things to do in Mexico City are awesome because he came here for love and stays for its diversity, abundance of culture and proximity to nature.

Getting around Mexico City
The local airport is Mexico City International Airport (MEX), which is about a 30-minute drive from Mexico City. Use our Expedia tool below to find flight, hotel, and rental car options.
Alex says that there’s no need to rent a car unless you plan on taking frequent trips outside the city. He says that rental cars are affordable and parking is easy to find, so renting a car might be a good idea for some travelers. For the best rental car offers, visit Avis, Budget, or Hertz.
