Airport Recommended

It is recommended to arrive and depart from Benito Juarez International Airport in Mexico City (airport code: AICM).

We strongly advise utilizing the services provided within the airport premises rather than hailing taxis directly from the street or use ride-hailing services like Uber or Didi to reach CIMMYT or the Four Points by Sheraton Hotel. The journey to CIMMYT usually takes around 1 to 1.5 hours depending on traffic conditions.
