You can fly to Mexico City(MXC), Mexico airport from USA.

Explained a scenario below that gives you complete idea.

Example: If your ASC(Fingerprints/ Biometrics) is on June 24th

 & Consular(visa interview) date is on June  25. 

Plan to arrive on June 23rd (a Day before Fingerprints) before 9 PM or 10 PM CST to Mexico City Airport.

Plan to book return flight based on passport return timeline.

When to book my Return Ticket : (Take / Check for Insurance while you book flights- so it might help for any changes)

You can book your return ticket from Mexico City based on the passport return timeline(usually 1st or 2nd day after visa interview) from the consulate.

Most of the case : Better to book 1 way, else on 2nd day after visa interview(provided there is a facility to change return flight dates) after visa interview

1) Hotel is near by to US Consulate & ASC , has Wifi, safe location

2) Near by to Many other Restaurants

Please find below email ID to send email to US Consulate if you have any questions ?

The information printed on an issued U.S. visa should match the information in the applicant’s passport. If you discover an error (misspelling, error in the date of birth, error in the expiration date, etc.) on your U.S. visa, the applicant or a designated proxy can contact the Consular Section via: 

Mexico City Email : MexciCityVisas@state.gov

What you can carry & can’t carry to your ASC & Visa interview ? A) Do I need to carry passport or Visa size photos with me ? 

Answer: Not needed, your digital photos will be taken at ASC – Fingerprints appointment. 

B) What can I carry ? What can’t I carry ? 

Answer : The mandatory documents that you should take to the ASC office are: 

*Any Old passport (If Applicable)

* I-797 * Passport 

* DS160 confirmation page But if you have all your documents in 1 file already organized , then take everything with you. 

*VERY IMPORTANT MESSAGE:* You are not allowed to take inside to the ASC or consulate offices the following items: 

*Electronic devices such as cell phones ,laptops , headphones , USB flash drives, cell phone chargers, smart watches and any cable adapters.

* for women, you are not allowed to take your handbag

NOTES : About submitting new DS160 incase if there are any mistakes in old DS160 used for visa dates booking process.

Today we had appointment at ASC, Mexico City.
My wife’s appointment was with an old DS-160 and then we recently submitted another DS-160 due to an error in the passport number.
I could not update Appointment with new DD-160 online as the site do not let you do so once the appointment is confirmed.
But happy news is that, ASC can do an update to the appointment with new DS-160 and that was not an issue at all. So guys,
do not cancel your appointment if you want to change the DS-160. Simply go to the ASC on the appointment day with your new DS-160 and they will update it for you.
