Carol asks…

How much would it cost to live in Mexico city for a month?

– I know theres a swine flu there. This question is in regard for about a year from now,

Tijuana answers:

Mexico City is a great place to visit for a month!

It would be nice to have some more details about what you are looking to do in Mexico City.

Anyways, you can rent a decent (not a first rate hotel, but clean and safe) hotel room in downtown Mexico City for about $700 pesos per week, but that’s with a shared bath. It also includes free internet in the lobby and a safe for your things. You can get a room w/bath for about $1,000 pesos per week. It really depends on what you want. There are many hotels in the Centro Historico (Downtown) which is close to many sights and things to see and do.

Yes, there’s human flu in Mexico. It’s also in the US and now it’s in many other countries.

As for the cost of daily living: A ride on the Metro subway system costs $2.00 pesos (less than $0.20 US cents), a short taxi ride costs about $20 pesos, a bus costs about 3-4 pesos in the DF.

A tour of the city by Turibus costs about $150 pesos for all day.

Food: A tamale and a cup of atole (a steaming hot rice drink, often Chocolate or strawberry flavored) costs about 15 pesos. There’s your breakfast. Lunch at a small-medium family run restaurant, the set menu comida corrida which usually includes soup, rice, beans, a main dish (enchiladas, beef or chicken steak, fish etc), a dessert, tortillas and a drink of agua fresca (flavored water, like juice) should cost between $40-50 pesos. Dinner: six tacos and a coke= $38 pesos (5 pesos per taco, 8 pesos for the coke. So your total for one day of food= $93 pesos mas o menos (more or less) and that’s way under $10 USD at the current exchange rate of about $13.2 pesos to $1 USD.

Michael asks…

Mexico in August for 7 – 10 days: where in the country should I go?

I know it’s supposed to be the rainy season, but Mexico‘s a big country with coasts on two major oceans, so I wondered if there was a difference depending on where in the country you go.

I don’t really want to sit at an all-inclusive the whole time – I want to visit ruins, see the sights, and go scuba diving. I would rather stay at small local places, if possible.

What agenda would you suggest?


Tijuana answers:

If u come to mexico city, u can’t lost Guanajuato City, its 3 hours ago from DF and its like a little town of spain, u can visit too (in the same route) Guadalajara city with mariachis and tekila. And if u want to go to the beach, u can go to Puerto Vallarta there u have you’re scuba diving.
