Getting around Mexico City can be a challenge. A good option for tourists is the Turibus, a double-decker bus service that makes a circuit from the historic center, down the Paseo de la Reforma to Chapultepec Park and into trendy neighborhoods like Condesa, Roma and Polanco. It's an easy way to get to important tourist attractions throughout the city.
Riding the Turibus will help you to get oriented if you're new to the city, plus it's safe and stress-free.
- Cost for adults is 140 pesos Monday to Friday and 165 pesos on Saturday and Sunday. Children 4 to 12 pay 70 pesos Monday to Friday and 85 pesos on weekends.
- You can get on and off at any of the stops, as many times as you like for the day.
- You have the option of listening to a recorded commentary over a headset that gives information about the buildings, monuments and neighborhoods you pass through.
- The Turibus passes by the stops about every half hour.
Advantages over other modes of transportation:
- It's safer than taxis or the metro.
- There's no crowding.
- You can see where you're going, especially if you sit on the upper deck (just don't forget a hat and sunscreen).
Turibus excursions are also offered to the archaeological site of Teotihuacan, departing daily from the Mexico City Zocalo at 9:30 am. The cost is 650 pesos for adults, 400 pesos for children and includes transportation, lunch, and guided tour of the site.Turibus Website
