Mexico is amazing, my flight arrived late at the airport (which I am going to rank as new favourite airport) putting Koh Samui now in 2 and Southampton in 3. I rank based on ease and speed of getting from the front door to being seated and vice versa (I don’t count plane delays or Southampton with fly maybe would not be up there) … Mexico City airport is modern, efficient it took 10 mins to get off, go through customs, grab luggage, another customs check, drugs check (due to Sth America trip) and out the door, brilliant.
I then went to a taxi transfer stand, booked a trip downtown $205 pesos (circa £10). The man grabbed my luggage we went out and waited for a cab, but there was none from his firm, waited 5 mins while he went off somewhere, turns out he went to another cab firm, so off I went in cab company number two, when I hopped in the man handed me an envelope, which I opened in the back of the cab it was $10 pesos with a note that said the second company was cheaper than his, and here was the difference back. I could not believe it. Honest folk those Mexicans.
The airport is 10kms from the centre of Historic Centro (where I was staying), I was amazed at how commercial, how busy, how friendly, how quite new everything was… (General street snaps & amazing modern Mexico City).
