Travel to Mexico after Covid

Things are opening up but Mexico never closed lol, just joking. If you Travel to Mexico you will find amazing beaches, people and the city. Since I have been living in the US I have become more familiarized with Mexicans, their food, and vibes! Mexico has everything and is so affordable.

Flight hours to Mexico

Flying to Mexico from Chicago, where most of my readers are, to Mexico is  4 hours 20 minutes. Therefore if you live in the midwest it will take you those hours. How about from New York? Between 5 and 6 hours depending what part of Mexico. From Los Angeles to Mexico City is only 3 hours and 35, but to Cancun is 9 hours, I know such a difference.

Flight tickets to México

From Chicago to México costs from $573 to $815, but from Chicago to Cancún is only $350 to $700. Of course, we are always talking about coach tickets. How about from New York to Mexico City or Ciudad de Mexico, from $500 for $1,275 or to Cancún from $500 to $800 dollars. Also, you can check all of this on I am giving just an idea for you to budget yourself and consider Mexico or all other magical places that you can visit and practice this beautiful language that is Spanish.

Airbnb vs Hotels

Airbnb is perfect if it is considerably more affordable to stay there and you value privacy a lot because you will have your own pool, you cook your own foods, you pick up after yourself, etc. Also if you have a dog, as I do is easier to go to an Airbnb than to a hotel. If you don’t travel with your dog and you like your bed to be made, and room service, and all-inclusive cocktails, then you should go to a hotel. If you stay in an Airbnb in Mexico City you will spend between 22 a night to 80 dollars a night, which is considerably cheaper, than a hotel that you will spend $50 to $400 a night. For Cancun, Mexico I would definitely pick a resort because you probably be going to excursions more than restaurants, and in the hotels is all included. Anyways in Cancun, you can also find between $22 a night to $60 a night, but in a resort is between $50 a night to $1000 a night. Airbnb is cheaper, but generally Mexico, Cancun is poorer than Mexico City, or at least the city has more options, I would choose safety in a resort.

Beaches vs City

Ciudad de México 

If you travel to a city in México you have to go to Mexico City. The top reasons to travel there are:

  • FOOD. Affordable place to dine in restaurants Mexico City has always had a great food scene and the street food is just as worthy of mention as its fine dining establishments, but with three of the city’s restaurants recognized among the world’s top 50 should give you an extra push to go, should you need one.

  • ART in Mexico besides the food is one of the most fascinating places for street art.  

  • Night Life is very exciting. Here are special and weird drinks:


  • Speaking of Mexico City’s drinking scene, the capital is the ideal location to taste test not just the classics like tequila and mezcal, but also some lesser known Mexican beverages. We’re of course talking about pulque, the Mesoamerican drink that’s oddly nutritional and sometimes off-puttingly gloopy. Given that it’s practically impossible to export and transport, you can only really find it in the central regions of Mexico, to which Mexico City belongs.
