I visited Mexico City 2 summers ago and it was an incredible experience. The locals are very much into chess. The venue is magnificent and there will be a lot of media attention worldwide.
If you have time, I urge you to attend this very special event, even for just a few days, especially if you live in America. It is not to often that we have a major event this size in our backyard. It would be an experience of a lifetime for many.
