I was in Mexico on business and wanted to do a run but was a little nervous about running in the area around my hotel. I found the tours after doing a search and decided on the Coyoacan since I had never been there even though I have lived in Mexico City.
Citla couldn’t be easier to work with. One in my group kept wavering back and forth on whether he was going to it, so our number was constantly changing, we needed a ride from our hotel, couldn’t decide what was the best time, etc.
Regarding the run – Citla is a distance runner so she can rock any speed or pace you want, she’ll even give you tips if you ask. Me, I wimped out the last mile and asked if we could walk. No problem and we even stopped for coffee.
I would definitely do it again and recommend it, you won’t be disappointed!
