Thanks to all for your kindly regards and comments :)

Steven, concerning to the public safety, our city are different from the
known issues of the northern states of the country. In the link you quote
for United States citizens are properly pointed for Mexico City: "no

the north of this Downtown area) is safe for tourism. But we will have in
addition the special support and coordination with the Mexico City
authorities for more vigilance and a special operative for reduce any risk
to the minimum in the venue and their perimeter.
