If you visit the Federal District, there are certain safety measures that you should keep in mind to make your experience pleasant. In any city in the world, travelers must move with common sense. The official site of the Federal Recommend us to take certain measures when visiting Mexico City.

Mexico City

1. Avoid using credit cards, debit cards or cash, preferably use checks.

2. Use only authorized taxis and guide services. I recommend you download an application created by the City Council of the City Public Security called Taxi Notice, available for both Android and the iTunes store.

3. If you stray, stay calm and ask a policeman or within established businesses, for directions.

Use automated teller machines (ATM) in supermarkets or banks with security staff and are well lit (the machines, not the staff). Use these machines only during the day.

Other Important Tips:

1. It is noteworthy that the Delegations (areas that divide the DF) having the highest crime rates are: Gustavo A. Madero, Azcapotzalco, Benito Juarez, Cuauhtemoc and Venustiano Carranza. Avoid them if possible. Also avoid around the Basilica of Guadalupe, and the areas of Cento do not ever venture into the area of Tepito and Lagunilla (later of Garibaldi).

2. Keep a close eye on your belongings, especially in busy tourist areas, or in the middle of a crowd, as pickpockets prefer these scenarios for their work. If assault is better not resist, your integrity is worth more than the belongings and resistance usually occurs violence thieves. Avoid at all lonely coast places (this includes empty subway cars, known as Metro).

3. The U.S. government also recommended caution around the metropolitan area, specifically: Coacalco, Ecatepec, Netzahualcoyotl, La Paz, Valle Del Chalco Solidaridad, Chalco and Ixtapaluca (and indeed there are no tourist attractions for them).

Most importantly, learn from what happened to Batman’s parents (who had their last date with destiny Cueing walk with her little son on a lonely alley bad Absurd smartly dressed death right?) And use your common sense when visiting Mexico City or any other city in the world.
