Safety in Mexico City

Mexico invests heavily in the protection of its own citizens and tourists alike. This includes deployment of policemen in hotel zones, the construction of passenger bridges over major thoroughfares, the employment of English speaking tourism officials to offer assistance to visitors, and the strict enforcement of the drinking age. In addition, most US Consulates have joined efforts with local authorities to promote tourist safety.

When traveling, as in any major city, take certain precautions. Always keep your valuables out of site and safely stored in a hotel safety deposit box. In the event of a lost or stolen room key card, notify hotel management as soon as possible. Also, travel in a group and plan your itinerary before leaving the hotel.
