Mexico City

Helen asks…

Where do I get online schedule for bus from Mexico city to Taxco?

I will be traveling from Mexico City to Taxco by bus soon. I found the time schedule of the bus company Estrella de Oro. I would like to know the time of departure offered by other bus companies like Futura, Turistar.
Thank you for the answers!

Tijuana answers:

There are many bus lines, but only a few have websites. The 2 you named are actually owned by other companies. I looked on their sites as well as every other site with a website that has buses in that part of Mexico. The ONLY one listed that goes to Taxco is Estrella de Oro. When you get to Mexico City, you can go to TAPO and ask…there may be other choices, but no others that have websites that serve Taxco that I could find.

Mandy asks…

How much does it cost to live in Mexico City for one month?

My boyfriend and I are thinking about traveling to Mexico city this summer for one month. We are in our mid 20s. Some of the hotels I’ve looked at were 35 USD/night. Overall, how much do you think we would need for a cheaper hotel, affordable meals, and touristy stuff?

Tijuana answers:

There ARE hotels cheaper than that, but I just cannot recommend any for 1 month stay. I can’t imagine the two of you spending less than $1500 US in a month and you should have at least $2000 to be sure. My recommendation is to only bring a little bit of cash with you and when you need more pay take it out of an ATM or use debit cards for purchases.

I live in Mexico City. I wouldn’t for less than $3000 US a month.

Paul asks…

What is the best suburban area to live around Mexico City?

Me, my wife and our newborn should move soon to Mexico City as I’ve just received a job offer there. I would prefer to live in a house than in an apartment, so I’m looking for houses inside protected condominiums. What is the best suburb neighborhood to live in around Mexico City? I will be working at Miguel Hidalgo.

thanks!

Tijuana answers:

Another person mentioned Lomas de Chapultepec and Polanco. Those are definitely expensive neighborhoods, but they date from the time when every house stood alone with its own fortress like wall around it. It is my understanding that you want a gated community.
This will give you an idea of suburbs and better neighborhoods within the Distrito Federal.
La Zona Esmeralda in Atizapán de Zaragoza, Mexico State $300,000 – 1.5 million US.

Bosques de Herradura n the Municipality of Huixquilucan, Mexico State $600,000 – $1.5 million US Dollars.
Interlomas in the Municipality of Huixquilucan, Mexico State: several controlled access neighborhoods with prices ranging from $150,000 – $2 million US.
The following are all controlled access neighborhoods in Mexico City or the Distrito Federal. The prices are the average prices in US Dollars for a home in these neighborhoods
Bosques de las Lomas – $4 million
Colinas del Bosque $1 to 2 million
Jardines del Pegregal – $1 million
Tlapuente – $1.5 million
Santa Fe – $1.3 million
Bosques de Tlapan – $1.3 million

Jardines de la Montaña – $1 million

edit: If rental is what you want you can also find houses to rent in these areas. The rents are several thousand dollars per month. The woman who lived in the neighborhood called Colonia Cuauhtemoc, where the American Embassy, is for five years, but doesn’t remember the name of the neighborhood seems to be missing the point that you want a house in the suburbs in a gated community.
Final edit. BTW you said you will be working AT Miguel Hidalgo. There are a million places and things called Miguel Hidalgo. One of the Federal Districts 16 “delegaciones” or precints is called MIguel Hidalgo. The non-gated Polanco and Lomas de Chapultepec neighborhoods that some othere people (who don’t even live here) are worked up about are in that delegación. All the others I mention in the city, except Bosques deTlapan y Tlapuente are in Miguel Hidalgo or nearby. All the suburbs I mentioned in Mexico State, except Zona Esmeralda, are right next door.
It’s nice to get info from someone who actually knows what he’s talking about, isn’t it?
