This paper presents a comparative study of the living conditions, practices and meanings of tourist travel for young millennial women in Mexico City’s metropolitan area within the framework of youth tourism in order to identify how travel contributes to the social construction of their identity. Through comparative, mixed and gendered research, a methodological convergence strategy was applied in which quantitative research was carried out through surveys and qualitative research through interviews, aimed at two groups of young female students in different educational institutions, with different economic situations, and located in a central area vs. the outskirts of Mexico City. The results reveal similarities in both groups’ travel practices, but there are differences with respect to the meanings they grant them and, therefore, the role that travel has in constructing their identities.
