Anyone been to Mexico City

Might be there for a few days in November on business and might just take a couple of days out.

Any advice and first hand experiences, do's, donts' etc?

I plan to take 1 day out and do some exploring. I hear it is a little dangerous in parts - I will be alone so will have to be cautious.

Never been to Mexico City, but I did read an article on it the other day. Bloody big place, and there are some very dangerous places. The Mexican gangs are currently kidnapping people off the streets, taking all they have, including their clothes, and dumping them 10 miles outside of the city. They call it Gringo Tax ... So, be extra careful ..

surely a visit to the Azteca Stadium is planned?

You've got to go to the pyranids () spend a few hours climbing them. It's not too far from the centre. Jump in a VW Beetle taxi. The central square's not bad and has a lot of history. There are loads of great places to visit within striking distance of the city, but you probably don't have time....

Great nightlife, thou

Yes top place - do the pyramids if you can. May be some football on and also possibly some boxing - now that really is wild in Mexico. Bull fighting if you cajn somach it and a bit cathedral. Safe during the day, not so much at night. Decent subway system although walk when changing from one line to another can be long

Very good city but be carefull can be a nightmare if you walk of the beaten track
