How to get there?
When You don't know well how to move in the City, or it's your first time on Mexico City, it's better to take a safe TAXI cab inside in each one of the Terminals, Airport or Bus.
The cost could be higher than take a TAXI on the Street, but it's safer.
Airport to Hotel Isabel taxi serviceTravelers at Mexico City International Airport should only employ official airport taxis, since taxi-related crime is a serious concern.
For safety and comfort, do not get in an unmarked or independent cab.
The official airport cabs are available after exiting the baggage claim area near the far end of Lounge A and E, right next to the arrival gates, in special booths marked TAXI / TRANSPORTACION TERRESTRE (ground transportation).
They are staffed by personnel wearing bright-yellow jackets emblazoned with TAXI AUTORIZADO (authorized taxi). These cabs should be yellow with a white taxi light on the roof and an airport symbol painted on the doors.
Buy your ticket from the clearly marked taxi counters inside the terminal and tell the ticket seller your hotel or destination.
Ticket prices are fixed, based on a zone system and depending on the number of passengers.
After purchasing your ticket, go outside to the line of taxis where an official taxi "chief" will direct you to the next taxi in line.
Present your ticket to the driver.
Travel time to downtown Mexico City is about 35 minutes.
Ignore those people who approach you in the arrivals hall offering taxis; they are usually unlicensed and unauthorized.
Authorized airport taxis, however, provide good, fast service. After exiting the baggage-claim area and before entering the public concourse (as well as near the far end of the terminal near Gate A), you'll see a booth marked TAXI.
Staff members at these authorized taxi booths wear bright-yellow jackets or bibs emblazoned with TAXI AUTORIZADO (authorized taxi). Tell the ticket seller your hotel or destination; the price is based on a zone system.
A Mexico City Airport taxi to the city centre will be about MXN $180-260.
Present your ticket outside to the driver. Taxi "assistants" who lift your luggage into the waiting taxi expect a tip for their trouble. Putting your luggage in the taxi is the driver's job.
Airport to Hotel Isabel by subway (Metro)The Metro, Mexico City's modern subway system, is cheap and faster than a taxi, but it seems to be gaining popularity among thieves who target tourists.
If you take it from the airport, be forewarned: As a new arrival, you'll stand out. If you are carrying anything much larger than a briefcase, including a suitcase, don't even bother going to the station -- they won't let you on with it.
Here's how to find the Metro at the airport: As you come from your plane into the arrivals hall, turn left toward Gate A and walk through the long terminal, out the doors, and along a covered sidewalk.
Soon you'll see the distinctive Metro logo that identifies the Terminal Aérea station, down a flight of stairs. The station is on Metro Línea 5 (Line 5). Follow the signs for trains to Pantitlán. At Pantitlán, change for Line 1 ("Observatorio"), which takes you to station Isabel La Católica that are a five blocks south of Hotel Isabel.
