What should I pack when moving to Mexico City?

Answer this Question

We asked people living in Mexico City to list three things they wish they had brought and three they wish they had left behind. They responded...

"I wish I had brought with me all family & friends photo albums. They are of great help whenever you are crossing through the cultural shock. It helps by reminding you of friends and family. I also wish I had brought my stereo, dvd, etc since Mexico has the same electric outlet as USA. The last but not less important thing I wish I had brought with me is literature about Mexico (touristic sites, etc). since you can find them in Mexico but they are very expensive," said another expat in Mexico City, Mexico.

"It is important to pack clothing suitable for Mexico City's climate and terrain, especially for the warm months; sturdy shoes for walking and plenty of water is no less important. Be sure to pack sunscreen, hats, and sunglasses to protect from the sun. Depending on your individual lifestyle and needs, other essential items may include a lock for your suitcase, a flashlight (preferably rechargeable), and any necessary medication. Don’t forget to bring power adapters compatible with Mexico City's electricity outlets. Documents such as valid proof of identification and insurance information should also be brought. It is beneficial to have a small travel guide or Spanish phrase book to help navigate the city. Additionally, a first aid kit can be helpful to have on hand," wrote a member who made the move to Mexico City, Mexico.
