With such a short stop over, I'd just stay at the airport, hangout, time will pass by, its not like its a 12hr wait hehe

It is not that visiting the city is unsafe, it is just that 3 hours is not enough time to safely get through customs, out of the airport, see something, get back to airport and finally get checked in/boarded onto a connecting flight.

Stay at the airport. If you are connecting to someplace in Mexico you might change a little money, wander the terminals, view the art displayed and check out the shops (not to buy, just to what is available). good luck.

Stay put at the airport, you won't have time to leave and/or see anything local (away from the airport). By the way, if you like to shop: I haven't seen an airport shopping concourse that matches the high-quality of the one at Terminal 1 in Mexico City.

I've been in the new terminal 2 in DF and it was quite safe. There are quite a few pleasant shops for browsing and places to eat. Also, there is free wifi, if you have internet access with you. However, keep a good eye on your valuables -- two men on two separate occaisions approached our carry on, one seat over (husband had gone to the men's room) I was on the internet, and when I looked up, they abruptly did a 360 and walked away.

The Mexico City airport is very large and nothing is nearby that's worth seeing. If you leave the airport, I will put money on the fact that you will miss your flight.

Travel Tips for Mexico City

Flying Volodores

by Blatherwick

Just outside the National Museum of Anthropology you can catch one of the performances by the Volodores. These colourfully dressed men spiral upside down from a pole 60 feet in the air while only attached by a rope around one ankle. One lucky guy gets to play a flute at the top until all members reach the bottom. This is well worth watching if you have not seen it before. They do it roughly every 15 minutes.

Big Familias

by Mexgirl

If you don´t know anybody living in Mexico and just stay in the touristic Zones, it will be difficult to see some of the Local traditions and customs of Mexico.

They vary in each city or state, but what is a common thing everywhere in Mexico is the importance of the family.

Normally in any mexican house, Sundays are the days when the family gathers for lunch. And for family not only parents and kids, also auncles, aunts, cousines, grandparents and close friends join.

Packing List

by flyingpig

No matter how careful you are and even if you are blessed with a cast-iron stomach, you need to face a basic fact: you will get diarrhea at some stage in Mexico City! Everybody from the US or Europe does, simply because the standard of hygiene is much lower in Mexico (no criticism, just a fact).

I and my friends spent several weekends exploring every inch of our toilets after succulent meals in the best restaurants in town (which I shall not name here). Seafood must only be had from restaurants like the Crab House where you can guarantee it is fresh - food poisoning happens mostly from eating seafood or drinking contaminated water.

Anyhow, just don't forget a few caplets of imodium, because you are going to need them, trust me.

El Cárcamo, an unique work of art. (1)

by Aptypo

El Cárcamo -
Museo del Cárcamo de Chapultepec.
(Chapultepec Well Museum).

It is a very special place given the conditions in which it is located (in the middle of the forest) and in which it was a water box that spurted to all the Mexico City in the 50's.
The water came from the springs of the Toluca Valley by gravity, a wonderful work of engineering made by Mexican technicians with a route of more than 60 km.

In 1951, Diego Rivera painted the Cárcamo de Dolores (Dolores Well), which would receive the water from the Lerma river.
'El agua, origen de la vida' (The water, origin of the life), stands out being a subaqueous picture and therefore considered unique in the world, and because was the first time that Rivera used a synthetic material: a polystyrene emulsion with pigments.

Here, he represented his ideas about the origin of life and the human being.
He depicted the technical achievement of constructing the tunel as a homage to engineers, and designed large hands that deliver the liquid to the people.

Today, 'El Cárcamo' is a different museum. The building that protect the 272 sq. meter of pictorial art, reunite a heap of photographic and documentary material refer to the floods in the past of Mexico City, the importance of the hydraulic engineering to provide water to the city, the message depicting by the artist, the difficulty of the rescue of his work, the value of his art and the integration with the Tláloc fountain, located in front of the distribution box, that Rivera design in 1952 with mosaic tiles.

Coyoacán Neighbourhood.

by Aptypo

Coyoacán (Coyoacán neighbourhood).

This place has an intellectual and bohemian feel.
It’s most lively on Saturday and Sunday, when street vendors set out their wares: handcrafts made by native indians; ballons, soap bubbles, snacks.

A little kid came around selling flowers while you are waiting for your pancakes.
People go looking for the shade of a generous tree and the delicious flavor of the mango or banana ice cream.

Plaza Hidalgo (Hidalgo Square) and Jardín Centenario (Centennial Garden) are twin central plazas separated by a small street, this is where you will find most of the 'happenings' on a weekend, with vendors, music, and artists. The square is bordered by shops and restaurants.

There are also artists painting everyday scenes of Coyoacán, still life, portraits, cartoons and other themes; street musicians playing, mimes and many people enjoying these cultural activities while other just dance 'danzón' at the kiosque.

Stroll the cobblestone streets, take your time on every one of the market stands that interest you and bargain for what you want to buy.

Well, it is a typical place where you can find and enjoy the essence of Mexico City.

A place to relax yourself and have a good day.

Not only for conventional shopping.
