Cancun via Mexico City?

by fealsamh

Hello!
My brother is getting married in Cancun in November. My boyfriend wants us to fly into Mexico City and spend a few days site seeing there before going on to Cancun. Does this sound like a good idea? We don't really know any Spanish and I am very concerned about safety, and getting traveler's sickness right before the wedding! (ugh)
We have traveled together in Europe, but over there it is easy to find people who speak English fluently. What about in Mexico?

If you have the time and money, why not visit Mexico City! Why not do the trip in reverse, fly into Cancun and days after (or whenever) the wedding work your way up to Mexico City and fly out from there.

That way you can practice simple Spanish phrases while in Cancun and if you do happen to get "traveler's sickness" it would be AFTER the wedding. You will be fine though, just stick to bottled water and enjoy all the food. Have fun, congrats to your brother and good luck with the new in-law!!

I can't imagine that you will get sick in Mexico City if you limit your eating to proper restaurants. Just restrain yourself from testing out food kitchens in the streets if you want to avoid the risk of spending the wedding in the bathroom ;-)

Mexico City is wonderful and hugely interesting, surrounded by even more amazing sites. Although it would help to speak Spanish you will always find people who speak English. Get yourself a language travel guide where you find all important phrases, and can point at them when you are not able to pronounce them. In more complicated cases hotel staff can always help you out. Make them to write you down directions for subway and buses, and you will be fine.

Agree with previous posts. BUT I dont recomend you ride the subway. and use the Hotel Taxis that the Hotel doorman will get you that belong to the Hotel. Stick to bottled water and NO STREET TACOS. Not that they arent good, but your stomach is not use to some things. Mexico City is a World Class place with MUCH to do and well worth the stop before or after your CanCun Event. As for English, many ,many speak it. That should not be an impediment for you. There are many VTèrs in DF.

Or...flying directly to Cancun and getting out of there right away to see mayan ruins perhaps?

Well, I really don't want to spoil any plans your brother could have in mind for you. What I think is that you could explore aztec ruins and see a little about Mexico City which is huge. I am not personally a big fan of it, but I do know that is a huge city with lots of stuff to do.

Why don't you call a VTmeeting, some people would be happy to meet with you and give you recommendations right there, maybe a tour could show up!

I went to Mexico City my senior year of high school, and we were actually chaperoned less than on the trip to NYC I took a month later. Great city.

Very often it's cheaper to fly into one city and return from another. Interjet has no frills flights between Cancun and Mexico City. Condesa would be a great area in Mexico City to stay; trendy and safe. Mexico City is wonderful!!

Travel Tips for Mexico City

Markets

by skullcrusher

I always enjoy roaming the markets, though I rarely ever buy anything. Mexico City has many, many markets of course, but I really like the market area that spreads north, south, and east from the Templo Mayor. It is very big and often very crowded with lots of nik-nak to check out.

Is importan visit the...

by lucyguajardo

Is importan visit the Antropologic
Museum . You can find real old stones ans
scultures of ancester. Is the basis of the Mexican history. I recommend a guide
at the museum that can explain the mean of each thing. You can spend more than 4
or 5 hour in the museum, but if you are hurry i can tell you the 1rst floor is
the best!!!
If you want more fun
that culture, you can select this options:

Six
Flags: Park atractions. You paid around us$18 dlls and let you
enjoy of all the attractions.
Wax
Museum: I really impress about the prefection statues of wax.
There are a lot of international famous people. Gandhi, the Pope,
ex-presidents of some countries and hollowood stars!!!! whe you get in, try to
get alone in a room, you'll feel somebody is looking you (of coures, that
somebody are the stautes that seen so real) scare!!!! It have a terror area,
too. Get Fun!!!
Next to the Wax Museum is the Ripleys Museum (Belive it of
Not). You can spend hours inside if you read all of the infomation of each
stange object.
Feria de
Chapultepec: Another park attraction. Is cheaper but funny
like Six Flags

Aguas, Juices and Milkshakes

by Mexgirl

In Mexico, it is very common to go to a Paleteria o Neveria (Ice cream shops) for an Agua (water with blended fruits) or Juices (like carrot with orange, orange with papaya...tons)

These Aguas have a big range of variety and normally they can be mixed too. The most famous Aguas in Mexico are Horchata (rice water) and Jamaica. But in some places like Zona Azul, Tepoznieves, La Michoacana, Buena Tierra... you can find also waters made with any fruit and mixed together (Guanabana, Strawberry, Guava... any you want)

As well as juices and waters, there is also the option of milkshakes with fruits and cereals (oatmeal, etc.)

You can definitely play with your imagination in this place and make all the combinations you want.

It depends on the place and the size of the Glass, but every juice, Agua and Milkshake can vary from $8-20pesos

Raincoat

by Aptypo

It takes up a lot of space in your luggage. Leave it at home, unless you are heading for cold climate. Some people prefer a RAIN JACKET or PONCHO. It packs very small, is light, and doubles for a ground sheet or simple tent. You can buy one at many camping stores.

by flyingpig

Try to go to Puebla, you won't regret it! The outskirts of the city are quite industrial (Volkswagen biggest factory is located there) but the old town is full of charm with its cobblestone streets and colonial style buildings.

Puebla is ideal for a day trip from Mexico City. Take a taxi to the TAPO (Eastern bus terminal) and head for the Estrella Roja Pullman Plus ticket counter. For only MXP90 per person you will enjoy a comfortable two hours trip from Mexico City to Puebla. Your bus will arrive at Puebla's bus terminal, also known as the CAPU. From there, take a registered taxi to the city center (Zocalo).

Near to the Zocalo you can visit the cathedral, but I suggest you walk up three blocks on Av. 5 de Mayo to get to the Santo Domingo church. Once inside, head for the chapel on the bottom left side. You won't believe your eyes - it must be one of the most heavily ornamented with excesses of gold leaves, chapel in all of christianty!

Puebla is also an excellent destination to shop for highly decorative Talavera ceramics, or buy some original sweets of all shapes and colours.

Close to Puebla (some 10Km) is the town of Cholula, which boasts the biggest pyramid in the world. To get there, take a 'Directo' bus from Puebla to Cholula (just MXP4 per person). Any taxi driver should be able to point you to the bus stop. In Cholula, take a taxi to the Zona Archeologica. I highly recommend that you take a guide for your visit, otherwise you will see plenty of tunnels without understanding the many interesting facts about this massive monument.

Some 10 minutes by taxi from Cholula is the village of Tonantzintla featuring the amazing church of San Miguel, entirely decorated by indigenous people in a uniquely Mexican style. Not to be missed!
