How to get to CINVESTAV

The CINVESTAV campus is located on the northern part of Mexico City, and can be easily reached by public transportation. A good reference point is the crossing of Av. Instituto Politecnico Nacional and Calzada Ticoman.
Take the Metro to station "Potrero" or "Lindavista" and then a small bus going north by Av. Instituto Politecnico Nacional to "POLI Arcos, Ticoman". Alternatively take the Metro station "Indios Verdes" and then a small bus "Ruta 18" going west by Calz. Ticoman to "Ticoman".
A taxi from either of these Metro stations to CINVESTAV will cost around 30 pesos (3 USD).


There are many restaurants around the intersection of Av. Instituto Politecnico Nacional with Av. Montevideo, about 2 Km. south from the Cinvestav. Near the Workshop venue inexpensive Breakfast (8:00-11:30) and Lunch (13:00-15:30) can be had at the "Casa Rioja" (Corner of Av. La Rioja and Huanuco St.).
One can try for Breakfast as well the CINVESTAV Cafeteria or a small Cafeteria (just hot drinks and cakes) situated at the lobby of the Physics, Mathematics, and Educational Mathematics Library.
