Today we are featuring a sale with Aeroméxico from Los Angeles to Buenos Aires via Mexico City. Argentina is opening up slowly to tourists and is super cheap with the parallel currency exchange rate (dolar blue).
You can schedule some long layovers in Mexico City which would allow you to explore the city since you can reach the Zocalo via metro, 45 minutes to an hour both ways and see the Cathedral, National Palace and Rivera Murals, and the Templo Mayor or if you have some more time you can venture out to Teotihuacán which is an ancient Mesoamerican city located 30 miles (50 km) northeast of modern-day Mexico City.
