Cash is still king in Mexico City, so make sure you always have pesos on you. Most markets and many shops do not accept credit cards.
If you are like me (Rissi) and cant deal with spice food, ask for samples. All restaurants and bars are happy to bring you sample of sauce, mole, or pulque. Even when they say that is not hot, it is!!!
Try to stay in the Condesa / Roma Norte area. You will love it.
Dont pay for water in restaurants. Ask for “agua del filtro” as it should always be free but waiters always bring expensive bottles instead!
Uber is cheap in CDMX, but Didi Chuxing is even cheaper. Download the app, change the language to Spanish or English (mine was defaulted to Mandarin) and save money.
