So possibly you booked the trip to Mexico City and have some time to pre-plan or make arrangements. Most of this is stress about getting around and we are just familiarizing, so if internet isn’t available and we’re nervous or confused, we’ll still be confident about some framework. I like to get a Metro card charged up and in this case there is a light rail too, but just pay for that on one round trip when you get there. First idea:


Xochimilco (Little Venice) 1hr26min from hotel, 8 pesos each way (see screenshots).

Allende board through Metro (orange symbol)
Tasqueña board through Xochimilco Light Rail (blue symbol) follow signs for ‘Tren Ligero’ 3 pesos to Xochimilco.

Other info if needed.
