The participant Agencies should cover their own air transport costs to and from the City of Mexico. We recommend that the participants reserve their flight with anticipation or with their travel agencies. The International airport Benito Juarez from Mexico City corresponds to the code MEX.

5Taxi service and other forms of transportation

Profeco will take care of picking up the agents of the participant agencies at their arrival to the International Airport Benito Juarez and provide them the transportation to the events that are part of the Summit’s agenda.
Although if the agents want to use other forms of transportation to other places of the city, we recommend to always use authorized taxis by the hotel.

It’s important to have into account that the city has important touristic areas such as:

  • Downtown
  • Chapultepec-Lomas
  • Coyoacán
  • Polanco
  • Roma

  • Xochimilco

Within these sectors, the distances can be walked, and additionally the city has bike rental establishments.

For the participants that desire to take an alternative form of transportation, the city has city sightseeing tours on the “Turibus”.

We recommend that you ask for advice in the respective hotel of the summit for more information about different touristic places available that you can enjoy in the city.
