Information on Mexico City Airport



If you are considering a visit and have never been to Mexico City Airport (MEX), here are some nice surprises while you wait for our vans to pick you.Terminal 1 is the newer terminal, with shops, restaurants, wifi in many places like Starbucks and of course the usual lounges, plus a direct connection to the Marriott Courtyard Hotel if you need to stay overnight.

Terminal 2 is a bit older but still modern with the same amenities and a large exhibition hall with wonderful photos of different parts of Mexico. The exhibit is worth some time if you have it. Again there is wifi at many restaurants and Starbucks has seating with desk like areas and electrical plugs. (Electricity is the same as in the US, no adaptor needed).

You will find both easy to navigate, with many English speaking staff and goodies to buy.  Restaurants accept credit cards.


Here is a secret, if you are a frequent visitor, some restaurants do NOT change their passwords.

Winter is here; see our Climate below

Exactly what is winter like in Ixtapan de la Sal? The resort is 5400 ft. above sea level, but South of Mexico City (65 miles). Altitude gives us cool clear mountain air and being at the southern most part of North America gives us warm days and glorious flowers. Yes Mexico is North America! Daytime temperatures in winter range from 70-80 with full sun. Night time range from 55-60 max. Rain falls mostly in the Summer and Fall but an occasional day also in winter, giving guests time to enjoy their spa treatments and day trips.

Clothing in winter is layered for the early AM walk, summery for daytime, and again light sweater or fleece for night time. The resort supplies both heavy blankets for the thin blooded and fans for those who like to super cold. The pools are heated.
