To help people feel more comfortableabout traveling to Mexico, in July 2009 tourism officials implemented a plan whereby visitors to the capital receive medical aid and assistance in case of an emergency.

The city’s elevation and air quality should be of concern to you if you have any allergy or asthma issues, though various environmental initiatives have improved air quality to the degree that you’re unlikely to notice it. Initially the change in elevation may affect your breathing, sleep patterns, digestion, and alcohol tolerance. Take it easy, drink lots of water, and lay off the cocktails.
