Mexico City?

I might be going to CDMX for the first time.

Is it safe to take a taxi from the airport, or should I just use Uber? Is Uber safe?

Also, any other things to avoid. I know not to drink local tap water or eat street food etc. Where’s a good place to get authentic, clean Mexican food that won’t have me shitting out my guts for days?

    It's fine to take a taxi as long as you use an official taxi rank and not just some guy who runs up to you at the airport. Uber is fine too, though I dunno if they're allowed to come to the airport (some airports don't allow it). CDMX is fine. Just don't be a moron, try not to look too rich and consider staying away from some of the dodgier areas like Doctores or Tepito.
    p.s. Eat street some street food you weak bellied AIDS riddled immune system b***h. It's also fine if you're not a huge homosexual.

    Taxi your way out of the airport, make sure they're legit. Uber for everything else

    Try using Didi app instead of Uber in CDMX. Cheaper and you can pay cash. But they don't vet the drivers like Uber (some are shady), the cars are noticeably shittier, and there is not much in terms of security. I wouldn't take it if I were a woman alone. It's fine if you are going from the airport to a decent area.

    Eating street food is fine. Go where all the locals are going in the nicer areas. The last thing a taco guy is gonna want is to give you the shits for 3 days, he'll go out of business because no one will come.

    Always take Uber in Mexico, unless you're in Cancun.

      I dunno. Local people are accustomed to lower levels of hygiene and have iron stomaches.

      There are plenty of small restaurants and stands inside markets and restaurants are cheap enough that you don't have to eat on the street.

      The street food is inherently dangerous because they like to use open containers for everything, even the sauces, they'll just spread out in a huge pan instead of putting in a bottle so obviously all kinds of contaminants are going to get in there.

      I don't go near the stuff.

          Got an uber there last year, around 20 mins drive for 45 pesos which is around $2. The official taxi guys can be sketchy, and if you get into an argument with one of them over a fare, any passing taxi drivers will hop out and backup their boy

        My guess would be mayonnaise spoils easily and it's obviously not being refrigerated sitting on a street cart all day. But you shouldn't be afraid of LatAm street food, as a general rule. It's not India. Some Latinos are actually more hygienic than Americans, if you can believe it.

      What is the best way to travel from the airport to the air bnb if Ubers are not available?

      • 8 months ago

        There are ton of taxi stands inside the airport as you exit. You stop at one of the stands (it doesn't matter which one you choose), pay for the voucher and you take it outside. The cabs from the airport are safe and professional operations.

        I don't think Ubers are allowed to pick up from airport.

        YOu do'nt have to worry too much about safety. most crime in CDMX has to do with pickpocketing in the subway (some stations are notorious) or bus and it's unlikely you can wander into a dangerous area.

        To minimize pickpocketing risk you can just take a cab or uber.

    How is it like living in Mexico city as a remote worker making dollars?

    How much would be needed to live decently in a good area? 60k?

    Also how is the dating scene

    I remember reading some asian guy posting on Reddit on how he hooked up a couple of times there and it wasn't super hard

    I'm Latino though, bad bunny skin tone, Chicano, I speak Spanish

    I've fricked different types of girls in southern California, asian, latinas, white latinas, I'm 5'8 lean, I stay " looksmaxxing " as in I've gotten work done and try to maintain my appearance

      Divide that by half easily. In smaller cities divide that by 4. I don't know why digital nomads pick Mexico City. It's a shithole. It's interesting to visit but it's an extremely crowded, polluted, noisy, thirdworld feeling place. Mexico is a big country with a lot of different towns and cities. There's many other places to go and nightlife in even the smaller Mexican cities rivals big cities in the US.

      Bring Aqua tabs in case you need to drink tap water. I used one per gallon of tap water throughout Mexico, had no gut issues. However, the locals were horrified at the idea! One caveat: do not drink tap water with floating particles. Slime gobs can hide nasty critters inside, where purification agents are not able to reach.
      If you want to avoid gut turbulence, be sure to balance rich and bland foods in your diet. Eat enough roughage, like cooked vegetables or fibrous grains. If you pig out on greasy, intensely flavored foods shortly after arrival, your gut will probably get quite inflamed and upset. Hopefully you have many weeks in CDMX, so you can take your time exploring the endless culinary options. While it may be tempting to walk the streets hungry and pick a random restaurant for every meal, this is how you run the greatest risk of problems. Be a judge of restaurants; don't sit down as soon as you walk in. Don't be afraid to look around, ask to see the menu, look it over, then say "gracias, quiza mas tarde, que Tenga buen dia" and walk out. Don't assume a crowded restaurant has good quality food; busy, low-paid employees are often the sloppiest with food handling, while abuelas who run tiny eateries with two tables (nearly always empty) prepare everything with care and keep perishables properly stored in the fridge. Once you find a great place to eat, drop a pin on your map and return again.

      The tap water tastes like ass on top of being questionably safe which is why locals drink RO water.

          Just wikipedia "list of cities in Mexico" its one of the few countries in Latin America with a pretty evenly distributed population (though 20% of the population is still around CDMX) and look at the articles for some places.

          I don't know what you're looking for. Historic colonial distrits? Inland/mountain areas? Beaches? Nightlife?

          If you want a bigger city that isn't CDMX with a lot of university age people look at Puebla, Guadalajara or Monterrey. If you want quiet beach towns look at places on the Yucatan peninsula. If you like indigenous stuff go to Oaxaca. If you want to go where Mexicans go to party look at Puerto Vallarta or Veracruz. Avoid Acapulco though.

      Zona Rosa is one of the points with the highest number of assaults in the center of the city.
      In addition to Zona Rosa, I recommend being careful in Alameda Central and Zocalo.

          I am referring to the area that surrounds the Zocalo, not necessarily the Zocalo itself, the numbers of robberies with violence (assaults) are high in that area, but remember that it is a very crowded place, so the probability of suffering from an assault is lower, even so I recommend maintaining greater caution.

              In the city center I see that the Polanco and Lomas de Chapultepec areas have a low number of robberies, the same with Cuauhtémoc-San Rafael, while the Roma-Condesa and Coyoacán-San Ángel areas have a relatively low level of robberies.
              Outside the tourist areas, I highlight Napoles - Del Valle and San José Insurgentes - Del Valle Sur.

      This happened in northern Sonora, a region (and state) that has seen episodes of extreme cartel violence recently. Not that Sonora is particularly dangerous for tourists - in fact, they like seeing Americans visit. But I still would not want to be a Chicano sneaking across fences and into the hills of remote ranchlands to botanize.

      I know you're shitposting, but in case you're a moronic zoomer, why would you want it? There's thousands of restaurants all around you offering better Mexican food. That's true even in America.

        Even Eurotrash has been going to CDMX to live the 'cheap cosmopolitan' lifestyle for a while. It's not so much WFH that ruined it but just ~~*The Media*~~ pushing CDMX as a safe fiesta city where you can LARP like you're in New York for 1/10th the price.

        Well, now it's not 1/10 the price and AMLO is anti-NATO so he's fricking the Peso exchange rate. Actual prices in the country have gone up too so it's no longer 'cheap' despite still very much being an absolute shithole and failed narco state.

        Yeah, unfamiliar country means unfamiliar germs. Anyone traveling continents to go anywhere has to be prepared to get sick at some point, even if it's just the local flu. It's inevitable, but it shouldn't put you off if you've taken the right precautions.

        Don't drink tap water even if locals insist it's safe. I know an American girl who lost 10 pounds after catching a nasty stomach bug in Colombia.

          Colombia is really bad for having food like empanadas pre-cooked and sitting in display cases...for how long, who knows? A few seconds in the microwave is not enough to nuke the nasties. I got a bacterial infection from an empanada in Salento, and after 10 days of cramps and shits, I had to nuke it with Krodex, which fricked up my digestion for a long time.
          In Mexico, most food is thoroughly heated on a stove before being served. Burritos served cold are a notable exception; I bought a burrito made of leftover meat at dusk from a street vendor in Chihuahua City once. I think it was for the street people. It gave me sudden liquid shits for two weeks. Notwithstanding, I have enjoyed many cheap and delicious burritos since then with no issues...but only in the morning!

        I beg to disagree. The longer one stays in Mexico, the more one's gut adapts to the cuisine, which includes the environmental contaminants. In past winters in Mexico, I took it easy the first few weeks, eating a mix of my own food and restaurant meals/street food. (One huge benefit of importing my car into Mexico was the ability to bring a stash of gringo food, a saucepan and a hotplate. Strongly do not recommend bringing a car into CDMX, however.)
        After a few weeks in Mexico, I eat anything the locals eat, including fresh produce from market vendors in the calle. Of course, eating greasy fried meat every day is not ideal for one's gut health; grumbling and bloating were chronic, and I had to loosen my belt a notch, but my shits were always solid.
