holiday value

by henrylc

would i be correct in this theory. i am an australian who is planning a trip this year to mexico city. being that the australian dollar is so weak compared to the american dollar would i be correct to assume that i would save on a trip to mexico based on the fact that most things are quite cheaper in mexico. ie accommodation, car rental, dining etc. so what i would lose on the exchange rate would pick up on the costs of above, is there anyone who can give me an idea whether my theory is correct
thanking you henry

Re: holiday value

by jumpingnorman

Hmmm.....this question is not very clear to me, but I think it really depends on what you want to do and where you are going to stay and what you are going to eat in Mexico City..the prices there range from very affordable to exorbitant.

On the other hand, if you go to USA, you will also find a lot of good deals behind the exorbitant prices...actually there are more deals and bargains now in USA because of the recession, so this might be the nice time to visit...

So, rather than worrying about the $, I suggest just doing the research and go where your heart really wants you to go...Hope this helps, and Greetings from Arizona, Norman :)

Re: holiday value

by Laura_Mexico

Agree with the other 2 posters..... if you're so concerned about losing $$$ when transferring from one currency to the other (ie buy american dollars, then come to Mexico and buy Mexican pesos with your USD's), I suggest that you bring very few or no USD and use an ATM instead to withdraw mexican pesos, there are like 100000 at the airport and then your bank will only have to make the conversion from AUD to MXP without losing anything in the middle and without you having to buy USD's. Even if your bank charges you a commission for each withdrawal, I think this is the best way to save money and lose as little as possible in the exchange. Mexican ATMs let you withdraw a maximum of $5,000 pesos (about AUD $500) per day, so that should be more than enough to cover your expenses. I suggest that you make only one big withdrawal and then keep your money on a money belt under your clothes at all times until you use it up instead of making many little withdrawals, cuz you will be charged with a commission each time you do. Also, try to use ATMs only within the airport or inside shopping centers or supermarkets, not the ones at banks on any street because those are more exposed and thus are less safe. Just a suggestion... cheers.

Re: holiday value

by zapfilms

Laura has it accurately, you are in your head trying to do 2 conversions... Mexico can be much more economical than the USA for a trip-vacation, but its not necessarily true anymore - if it ever was - that everything is cheaper in Mexico. In the 1970´s and 1980´s it was quite cheap for foreigners to travel here, many things remain inexpensive - rents & tacos - but many things cost as much or more than US - phone bills MORE, electronics MUCH MORE, clothes MORE. So you have to define your niche, your plans and then those on this forum will help you better - suerte!

Travel Tips for Mexico City

Spend a Saturday walking from...

by namastedc

Spend a Saturday walking from Coyoacan to San Angel. Coyoacan has a beautiful, diverse, and exceptionally clean covered market. The central square always has a festive atmosphere, and there are often Reggae bands playing (though primarily on Sundays). The Frida Kahlo 'Blue House' should not be missed. The walk to San Angel is about 30-40 minutes, but a nice change from the hustle of central Mexico City. Once in San Angel, the artist markets will take up most of your time. Restaurant La Mora, on the left just past Plaza San Jacinto, is a great way to get a birds-eye view of the markets while eating tasty, inexpensive Mexican food.

The Paseo de la ReformaTake...

by Pierre_Rouss

The Paseo de la ReformaTake the time to walk part of it, drive the rest. You will find along this long boulevard, monuments located in numerous roundabout every 1/4 miles. Including the Independence monument, the Independence Angel, the fountain of Diana, the monument to the Revolution of 1910, the Cuanhtémoc statue (last aztec emporor), etc...

The little town of Tulum is...

by yeah_baby

The little town of Tulum is slowly developing to offer various services (like an Internet Cafe for example) phone service, and more. There are several very good local restaurants and a few on the beach in the various properties in the hotel area on the beach that are absolutely wonderful and still very cost effective.
'Check out the Beaches and Ruins of this Place and click here'
Without question, some of the biggest powder beaches on the coast are in Tulum. There is a nice small beach right in the famous Tulum ruins, but the best are just south, along the road to Boca Paila. That's the same road that goes to the Sian Kaan Biosphere and Punta Allen (at the bitter end). To get there take the Coba road east (sign for Boca Paila) and then bear right on the coastal road (south). There is also great beach the other way (north, toward the ruins). Beach access is generally through the cabaña resorts you will be passing. If you like beaches, it just doesn't get much better than this! A word to the wise... if you go, don't leave anything valuable in your car while you are on the beach. Just take what you need

Squash

by flyingpig

There is a fairly large number of squash clubs in Mexico City. A directory can be found on this Web site: http://www.squashespanol.com/juego/donde/dirdf.htm

One hour of play costs between Pesos $75 and Pesos $100 typically. No membership to a club is required although some of the nicest courts can be found in places like SportsWorld - private clubs. Squash equipment can be purchased from any Marti shop - found in all the areas of Mexico D.F.

Local handcrafts of ALL TYPES!!!

by Laura_Mexico about "Plaza de La Ciudadela"

Plaza de La Ciudadela is more like a marketplace - rather than a shop - where you will find a lot of little locals/stands selling all kind of local crafts... Jewelry, clothes, embroidery, wool stuff, big Mexican sombreros, pottery, etc... You can find a lot of nice stuff here and the prices are very decent!! It's one of the places where you'll find better prices in town... Even though the prices are low, you can still bargain some with the vendors, especially if you buy several items. Of course it also depends on what you're gonna buy: it's not the same buying a pair of earrings worth $2 US dollars than a big hand-painted wooden box or a hand-embroidered dress that may cost over $50 USD.
