Mexico City has a very large Jewish community and many things to do, in fact Mexico City has the most museums of any city in the world.

Things To Do

Xochimilco - pronounced ( sochi milko)  - Rent a boat for a few hours, boat will take you along the canals, most boats have tables and chairs, many people bring their own food and have lunch ect on a boat. there are other boats in the water with bands playing music and selling food / drinks. along the canals are also some shops a restaurants. Definitely a relaxing way to spend a few hours.

We are going to Europe for a week in august. We really want to fly F through FRA and are trying to do so either on the outbound or the return.
I saw availability from MEX.
I found biz availability on the days we can go through other cities, but am still trying to find a way to go in F
I take it you're flying from the US.
If that's the case, interesting route. make sure it's not costing you more miles..

it would be for a day...less than a day.
How do you get around?

If its less than a day I would hire a taxi.
However, make sure its a reputable one.

If you need help with that I can prob get you more information

Was looking at Kosher Food NEAR the airport during a possibly long layover and came upon this: https://www.yelp.com/biz/leas-cafe-ciudad-de-m%C3%A9xico

Might be the only kosher airport establishment outside of Israel?

Before security, definitely worth a stop! And try their bagel chips style.
I believe I wrote a review about it last year (or at least I wanted to :) )

Anyone been to Mexico City recently and can report back on kosher situation?

Holding a ticket now for the end of April, AM J on 787-900 both ways for ~$560 RT.

The 2 restaurants in the wiki are both in Polanco area. Are there any other kosher restaurants or list somewhere of others?

What about Shul's in the area?

Thanks.

More of a fast food takeout than a restaurant, though it can be counted too.
