I actually spent a good deal of searching the forums before posting here. Feel free to link me if you got one. My destination is Ixtapa next month. We do not do much international travel at all and I figured y'all are so friendly and helpful. Thanks in advance!
We have a 6 hour layover in Mexico City, where we will be meeting friends who will travel there to see us. Do we exit customs and collect our bags at that point? How does re entry go then for our final leg to Ixtapa/Zihua? Is that a domestic flight? or do we do something with customs? Any airport tips would be helpful. If we were not meeting people, then what? Stay in secure area or collect bags?
I apologize for the newb questions, but I couldn't find a clear answer. Would leaving the airport be advisable? I realize a 6 hour layover isn't nearly that long if there are lines and bag collecting and the like. Plus Expedia changed our flights 4 times already, so who really knows.
Is there much near to do? A good restaurant or park?
