Luggage and bags:
I brought a very small carry on travel backpack for my trip. If you are planning on taking the subway to and from your hotel this is all you will want to take because there are TONS of stairs and quite a bit of walking involved. From the Zoloco to the Airport you will need to change trains three times and each time involves walking up and down pretty big flights of stairs.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: I was in Mexico City at the end of October and the beginning of November and it was much colder than I thought it would be (in fact I heard this from pretty every traveler I ran into). I brought a thin windbreaker, a fleece and a thermal and it was not enough. Were I to do it again I would bring my THIN thermal top and bottom, gloves, hat and a scarf.
If you are riding buses between locations also note it is freezing in many of these buses and you will be wearing all that stuff even in the summer.
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: I stayed at hostels and brought a sleep sack since it was so cold I ended up using it even though the hostels had sheets and a blanket.
Luggage and bags:
For women, I highly suggest carrying a small messenger bag. You can find the perfect size in the men's department at Benetton, H&M or other metrosexual stores. The don't look touristy like backpacks, but they also don't look like targets for a purse snatching, as you can wear them across your chest. I manage to stuff a lot of souvenirs, beret, gloves, etc. into mine to keep-up with the ever changing weather from morning to night.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Get a rain proof, tailored, trench coat that comes with a warm, zippered lining that can be removed. This coat carries me from warm, rainy days to cold, snowy nights anywhere I go in the world. Then, buy some nice leather, riding boots because they are stylish, won't hurt your feet too much after 8 hours of sightseeing and keep your feet and legs dry from the rain and snow.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Bring little packs of tissue paper. Some tourist spots run out of toilet paper, or the bathroom matron hands you such a small wad, you don't have enough. It also helps for runny noses, impormptu napkins or to wipe down wet, bus seats.
Luggage and bags:
You can bring whatever amount of luggage your airline allows if you come here. I always travel with a big backpack, but to get to know the city, I would recommend you to bring a some kind of comfortable bag for your guide book, and necessary stuff.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: If you come to Mexico in winter, you should always keep in mind that it is located in 2300m above sea level, so it can get pretty cold at night. Therefore you should bring a jacket and jeans (trousers) with you. During the day I would recommend a pair of trousers and T-shirt or shirt.
Besides, wearing touri-stylish kind of pants always is a question of style and going there remember that you are in a big city, so no beach wear! Also … the more “turistic” you look, the more you attract thieves. Also, as you are in a big city, you can find many stylish bars and restaurants, so bring apropiate clothes with you!
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: You can get about any kind of things in the city, but what you definitely should bring, if you are used to it and can't live without, is shower gel, as this does not exist in a great variation.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: There are various ways in which people carry money and important documents in hidden pockets in their clothes. Another option is cotton UNDERWEAR WITH POCKETS to store the buffer cash. Tailors in any part of the world will sew a small ZIPPERED POCKET inside the front of your trousers.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: These are normally the size of a softcover book of matches, and can be purchased for a reasonable price from most travel stores, and many airlines even give these out for free. They usually contain 2 needles, a little bit of different coloured threads, and a couple of buttons. This can be very handy sometimes, and does not take up any space at all.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: It takes up a lot of space in your luggage. Leave it at home, unless you are heading for cold climate. Some people prefer a RAIN JACKET or PONCHO. It packs very small, is light, and doubles for a ground sheet or simple tent. You can buy one at many camping stores.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: A light TRACK-SUIT works in two ways: both as something you can wear when you are washing your other clothes, and as good clothes when it gets cold. They take up a lot of space in your backpack though.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Wrap it around your shoulders for extra style or a bit of warmth, or slip it over your head when culture or weather requires some cover. Its large classic checkerboard pattern dresses up even the most basic outfit. Hand washable, line dry or dry clean.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: This is a must unless you travel in cold climates. SHORTS can double as SWIMMING TRUNKS. Don't use SPORT SHORTS made for running, since their length may be too short to be considered decent clothing in some places.
Its soft, lightweight fabric wicks moisture and dries quickly. Well-placed vents help keep you cool. Roll-up sleeve tabs to convert from long to short sleeves in seconds. The machine washable shirt also provides 30+ UPF sun protection with an adjustable sun collar, hidden security pocket and pleated chest pockets.
There is almost no place on the globe where you can be without a good warm SHIRT. Bring one or two tough flannel shirts, but leave them at home if the travelling destination is really hot.
