From Airport to the Hotel
« on: August 03, 2008, 07:14:24 PM »
I may have missed this in some earlier post, what is the suggested means of transferring from the airport to the hotel when we arrive in Mexico City?  It looks like I am arriving on Wed. within the same hour (2 p.m.) as others.  Has a particular shuttle service been recommended? or taxi?  Should we be using pesos rather than dollars?  In anyone knows, please enlighten me.

Thanks,

Gary

Here's what Thom and I are doing.

I was offered ground transfer service when I purchased my plane tickets through Cheap Tickets as an extra option.  Try Cheap Tickets first and if you can't find anything there try the service provider directly.  The service provider is Gray Line.  Their email address is graylinemexico@mexitours.com.mx  You want transportation for Zone 1/2 which is for the Reforma and Zona Rosa areas.  Round trip for the two of us is USD 54.00.

Hope this helps.  See ya'll soon.  Love, Ric

There are several of us who are arriving at the same time and have discussed via PM about meeting up and traveling to the hotel together.  How are we going to recognize each other and where are we going to meet.  I've gotten some pictures of some of you and I assume Wee One and i will be easy to spot.  I'll be the road weary lady hauling a very chatty queen.  Not to be mistaken with Bonnie who will be a road weary woman hauling around 2 chatty queens :P  I just don't want to leave anyone behind or wait for people who are already at the hotel sipping their 3rd margarita.

If this would be better discussed in PM, I understand.  I just wanted to get the conversation started.

Those of us arriving in the 2 o'clock hour will pretty much find each other. Actually the gang of 7 will assimilate the other 3.  Those of us arriving in the 1 o'clock hour will likely run like hell to clear the way (or he can wait around for early hugz-n-smooches  :-*)

Listen here, Mum, who you calling chatty -or- a queen?   ;)  Instead, you'll find Ms. Bonnie with 7 chatty queens!  I'm sure we'll be a bit chatty (or something) after drinks on the plane and a Klonopin (for whoever wants 'em). 

If you need a pic of Bonnie, D, or I, PM me with your email addy and I'll send you pics of us.

Should be easy to spot me. I'll have either my AMG Montrťal '06 or AMG San Francisco '07 shirt

Did anyone find out if we can pay with dollars?  I'm getting in late to the airport and don't want to get stuck without an exchange booth open, though I guess I can exchange money at the airport here in Philadelphia or when I change planes in Houston so nevermind.

But just in case if anyone has read something...

I know we can (supposedly) exchange money here in town before we leave.  I'm planning on exchanging a bit to get us started.

Regarding the ride from the airport?  Here{s my advice.

Get in.

Sit Down!

Close your eyes.

Hang on for dear life.  They go like a bat out of hell.  I{ve never experienced anything like it.

David,  you can get Pesos from the ATM right outside of the customs area.  You probably don{t need to get any before.  Homest.
