To say that a city is having a "moment" is painfully cliché, but the truth is that it's probably the best way to describe the sort of attention Mexico City's been receiving lately. It seems like every last travel site -- including the one you're reading -- has made its case for why you should get your butt to the sprawling Mexican capital tout suite. And while it may still be reeling from the catastrophic recent earthquake, it's safe to visit -- in fact, helping support the local economy is critical now more than ever. Luckily, now's a great time to book a trip, because there are crazy-good deals on roundtrip flights to CDMX from all over the United States at the moment.

Then again, you'll want to act fast since there's no telling when the prices may shoot back up -- according to the experts at Scott's Cheap Flights, many of these flights typically cost around $500.
