Safety and Security in Mexico City

Safety and security in Mexico City has improved considerably over recent years, and the conference is taking place in Polanco, which is a popular and safe area. However, as in any large city, individuals should exercise caution and be aware of their surroundings especially while walking.


With this in mind, we include below a few tips and suggestions to follow in order to help you stay safe on your arrival and when in the city.


On arrival at the airport

- Theft of items such as briefcases and laptops occur frequently at the Benito Juarez International Airport and at business-class hotels.  Arriving travellers who need to obtain pesos at the airport should use the exchange counters or ATMs in the arrival area, where access is restricted, rather than changing money after passing through Customs, where they can be observed by criminals.  


- Passengers arriving at Mexico City's Benito Juarez International Airport should take only authorized airport taxis after pre-paying the fare at one of the special booths inside the airport. There are now several companies operating authorized “sitio” booths inside the airport. Uber is now available in Mexico City, which is also a recommended option.


When in Mexico City

- Travellers should avoid any overt displays of wealth such as showing money, 

wearing flashy jewellery, driving expensive automobiles, etc, and be very cautious in general when using ATMs in Mexico. 


- In Mexico City, the most frequently reported crimes involving tourists are taxi robbery, armed robbery, pick-pocketing, and purse-snatching.  


- It is advised that all travellers should avoid taking any taxi not ordered by telephone or contacted in advance.  When in need of a taxi, telephone a radio taxi or "sitio" (regulated taxi stand – pronounced "SeeTee-O"), and ask the dispatcher for the driver's name and the taxi's license plate number.  Ask the hotel concierge or another responsible individual to write down the licence plate number of the taxi that you entered.   Avoid “libre” taxis that cruise the streets looking for fares, altogether (in Mexico City these taxis are red and gold). Although “libre” on the street-taxis are more convenient and less expensive, these are not as well regulated, may be unregistered, and are potentially more dangerous.
