In big Mexican cities, it can be a real challenge to navigate through traffic and busy downtown spots. There are some things that can make your life a lot easier and your stay a lot more pleasant. Here are three tips to keep in mind when navigating through Mexico:
1. Use a private driver
If you’re doing business in Mexico City or any other big Mexican city, you don’t want to rent a car or rely on public transportation. Hiring a driver is the most convenient and safe option for business travelers. It will also allow you to avoid the frustration of finding a parking spot. Your company, the friendly City Express Staff or your travel agent can help you hire the driver.
2. Stay in a hotel close to your meetings
Location, location, location – that’s what it’s all about! You want to make sure your hotel is close to all of your business destinations. Navigating through cosmopolitan cities can cause some major headaches if you get stuck in traffic-- not to mention it will throw off your schedule. City Express offers a variety of hotel options all across Mexico, so make sure you take advantage of our convenient locations.

3. Download useful apps
Uber, the on-demand car service, is extremely popular in Mexico. If you don’t have a private driver, your next move should be to use Uber to get around. You can download the app, for free, on the iPhone or Android. It’d also be a good idea to have your own map of the city in front of you (or on your phone.) Google Maps, Apple Maps or Waze will show you the best route to your destination. Download the directions when you have Wi-Fi, and then save it on your phone. It will continue to work even if you’re no longer connected to the Internet.
