About México City
Mexico City is the country’s cosmopolitan business, art and culinary hub. From the Alameda, a leafy center of activity, to the Zona Rosa, a chic shopping neighborhood, Mexico City offers endless options to urban adventurers.
The “Distrito Federal” is located in the Valley of the Anahuac, where our ancestors the Mexicas or Aztecs founded their empire, “The Great Tenochtitlan.” Mexico City has an unmistakable aura of greatness – everything in it is majestic and imposing. It’s amazing that, in spite of its sprawling size and modern influence you still find some districts where the native or the colonial style prevails as if time stood still.
In contrast, it’s an active and vibrant city that welcomes ten million visitors per year thanks to the variety of activities you can enjoy here. The city boasts 150 museums, venues for up to 10,000 people, theaters with excellent plays, and a big selection of hotels from charming inns to the most important international chains. We would love to be your host and help you try a little bit of Mexican hospitality.

This was a new experience for us. We have not traveled with a group. Glad to know that this is an option. We would not and could not have done this with anyone but IVI. Great service from Jaime and Astrid
It was a pleasure to work with you and your crews. They were truly wonderful. Just know that you were a part of making this incentive trip a success. Thank you for all your hard work, quick responses, and attentiveness.
I wanted to drop you this note to thank you and your staff for doing awesome job with our Incentive program in February. We definitely could not have done it without your well-experienced staff.
Since we have returned from the Aerotek Incentive, we have received numerous calls complimenting us on the way you handled the group. It is not easy to handle 2000 people but from the time the planes landed, to the moving of the guests and baggage to the hotel, your staff at the airport was always on duty and did an outstanding job for all of the guests. Your Hospitality Desks at the hotel were run so efficiently and the optional tours and dining requests were handled without any complications. The return transfer to the airport and the departure notices were handled efficiently. That you were able to move 2000 people that quickly was amazing.
