Licensed taxis are plentiful and cheap in Mexico so there is no reason to Use Uber. And, Mexico City has a reputation for Chicos Malos (Bad Boys) cruising around in fake taxis looking for a tourist to rob.

I'd beg to differ. For someone who is not from Mexico City, it might be difficult to discern which are "taxis de sitio" (really good taxis with drivers that are courteous, knowledgeable and honest) from regular taxis/taxis piratas which could have bad drivers, people looking for trouble, etc.

My recommendation is to get Uber, if you are inclined to pay a bit more then Uber X which has the more experienced drivers or a taxi de sitio from a reputable taxi stand.
