Mexico City’s Benito Juárez International Airport, originally constructed as a military air base in 1928, is both Mexico’s and Latin America’s busiest jet port, serving some 24 million passengers each year. The airport’s sleek and modern Terminal 2 opened in 2007. With artfully perforated concrete walls, a glass roof and plenty of amenities, the terminal serves as a nice retreat outside of Mexico’s 10th-most-populous city.

Comfort Zone // Terminal 2 houses a Starbucks outpost, so you can get a skim latte and muffin prior to your flight back to the States. There’s also a 7-Eleven, Chili’s and Sbarro. If you’re looking for a Cinnabon or Dunkin Donuts, you’ll have to head for Terminal 1.

Shopping // Peruse the biker wares at the Harley-Davidson store or shop small boutiques for some one-of-a-kind handicrafts.

Bonus // Keeping with the times, the airport offers free Wi-Fi service.

Check In // No need to worry about layovers. Catch some z’s at Terminal 2’s NH Aeropuerto T2 Mexico hotel, a modernist structure boasting a cutting-edge design and a stunning white-on-white pool deck. The cocktails at the hotel’s bar are especially colorful.
