areas to stay in

by jrmcdona

Hello,

I am flying into mexico city in august. I will be there two quick nights. Any suggestions on areas I should look for a hotel? Hotel doesn't need to be super cheap. just something nice and clean in a good area.

thanks!

So i just found out I can get a great rate at the W in mexico city.

How is the location? what neighborhood is this in and is it where i would want to be?

Campos Eliseos 252
Mexico City 11560

I am sure there better more cultural places to stay, but figured I would check becaseu the rate is good and this hotels has hammocks in the bath's of the room!

Well, if it's hotel ammenities what you're looking for then the area where the hotel is located doesn't make much difference. The zone where the W is located is considered as "classy" or fancy.... lots of jewish and wealthy people live in this neighborhood (polanco), there are a lot of restaurants and bars so it's lively even during the night (a good part of it at least, as it's a very big area). W hotel is close to Hard rock cafe, an irish pub, a starbucks, many restaurants and other luxury hotels such as Marriott, Nikko and Intercontinental, and a metro station ("Auditorio", orange line). It's not too far from Zona Rosa, where there's lots of nightlife too. The Chapultepec castle and several museums (Anthropology, Contemporary art, etc.) are located nearby too, if you're interested in sightseeing. The Chapultepec castle is called this way because of the huge park surrounding it (Chapultepec), which is the biggest green area in town, divided in 3 sections and featuring a lake where you can row. So I guess all this should give you plenty to do in these 2 days. Enjoy your trip.

thanks! not really going for ammentities and definitely not starbucks. I want to see the culture. The hotel is just a place to sleep and if it is nice that is good to. More want to be near a areas such as you mentioned and some night life. Maybe I will check for places to stay in Zona Rosa. thanks

I would go for the W. The hammock depends on the rate you pay as some rooms won't have a nice view from the hammock.

The are is the nicest for you to go out at night, a couple of minutes away from Chapultepec Park where you can take the Turibus to look around, minutes away from Museo de Antropologia which is pretty impressive. It is also like 15 minutes away (with traffic) from City Center where you'll find old buildings, Palacio de Bellas Artes, pyramids, etc.

Enjoy

Day of the dead

by cinthya_in_victoria

On November 1st and 2nd we celebrate the Day of the Dead or Dia de los Muertos. The 1st of November is also called All Saints' Day and is remembrance for the children who have died. The 2nd of November is also called All Souls' Day is remembrance for the adults that have died.
Mexican families put an altar in their houses with the food, drinks and the stuff that the dead relative liked when alive.
A common symbol of this day is the sugar skull (or calaverita in Spanish), which the name of any relative, dead or alive, is inscribed on its forehead. Sugar skulls are gifts that can be given to both the living and the dead. Other holiday foods include pan de muerto, a sweet egg bread made in various shapes, from plain rounds to skulls and rabbits often decorated with white frosting to look like twisted bones.

Many activities take place in celebration of the Day of the Dead like the ones in Coyoacan or Mixquic but they may vary from town to town.

Foreign vs. national business - PART 2

by Laura_Mexico

... Continued from Foreign vs. national business tip.

For you visitors who are coming to Mexico, I think my natural suggestion would be: visit our local businesses! Why would you come so far to eat at McDonalds or drink coffee at Starbucks when you can find those virtually ANYWHERE?? The real Mexican stuff you WILL NOT find everywhere, so you oughta take advantage of it while you have it available. Besides, you may like to know that some of the coffee they sell at Starbucks is MEXICAN, regardless of where the shops are. So if you're going to drink Mexican coffee anyway, do it at a national shop! Please see my recommendation about Cafe El Jarocho in my restaurant tips, just as an example of how you can enjoy the Mexican stuff while in Mexico!!

There is also a tip/suggestion about an ice cream parlor in Coyoacan, where you will find out that our ice cream can be as good as Ben & Jerry's or Baskin & Robbins'. We will very much appreciate your business, and you will enjoy it as well. Cheers!!

Monarch butterflies Mexico State

by Travmad

Going to see the monarch butterflies was a treat as well as an adventure. There really isn't a lot of info on the preserves in Mexico state. As that is where our day trip took us from Mexico city. We took a bus out towards the town of San Jose but you will have to ask the bus driver as well as some others on the 2 hour trip when to get off at a not so clearly marked intersection. There you can get shady taxi to the preserve or you can hitch. We hitched to the preserve and found out that you have to pay roughy 150 pesos each to get a guide for anther 25 minute ride farther into the mountains and entrance fees to the preserve. Money well spent seeing as how you need the guide to show you where the butterfies are. What a great day!

Big Mall!

by lelyramires about Centro Santa Fe

I was told it is the largest shopping centre in Latin America (oh, well, I was told the same thing about Sambil in Caracas and they say the same about Barra Shopping in Rio. I think Santa Fé is not bigger than Barra shopping!)
Anyway, it got department stores, boutiques, restaurants, play areas for children and ten cinemas!
I was in Polanco, so I thought it was quite far and you have to take a cab, there is no metro nearby. You can buy anything there. I guess you have to be prepared.
The department stores can have higher prices, but if you look around you can find reasonable prices.
