I am planning on traveling to Mexico city on the second half of July. I want to be able to tour around but I saw that it is a rainy month. How rainy is it? and are there specific times of day when it rains? Also does the rain go on for a long time? is it heavy rain?
I'm planning on a trip to Toluca Mx. After all of the outrage about cartels be headings etc my mom is absolutely terrified and against me going. I'm a 21 year old american blonde hair blue eyed female. I am going to be staying with my fiance and his family. What should I know about safety and how much should I worry. Planning on going late June for 2 - 2 1/2 weeks.
Could you recommend any good food courts in Mexico City? We will be staying in Zona Rosa/Reforma, so advice on food courts/shopping malls around that area would be much appreciated.
Thank you all in advance.

I have been in Mexico City before & have the luxury of staying in Polanco, Condessa & Zona Rosa, but this time I am showing the city to a few friends with a tight budget. Should we stay in a hotel near the Zocolo or Centro Historico? Any recommendations of the hotel? I have been told Holiday Inn at the Zocolo. Have you heard of Hotel Casa Blanca? Thank you!

Hi! I'll be visiting Mexico City and Manzanillo, Colima between 20DEC - 03JAN and would like to hear if anybody can recommend any unique or particular events going on during this time in Mexico City or Manzanillo? I'm thinking about Christmas markets, shows, foods, cultural events or any other fun stuff. I've been to Mexico City before and have done some of the regular tourist stuff, but would like to see really special and unique places and events which maybe only the locals tend to go to. Any tips, suggestions, links, etc are appreciated :) Chris

Is there a theatre industry in Mexico and if so, what is there on offer for English speaking audiences? Besides Frida Kahlo, what other art or renowned artists does Mexico have to offer?
Because we are in a very narrow budget, we came across this particular hotel...We are thinking of booking at this budget hotel, EL EJECUTIVE, located at Viena 8 Col Jurez. Is it a recommendable, clean hotel, safe location? Can you tell us how to get to this hotel from the international airport by metro? Is it safe, as we will be arriving 4:30 very early morning. Arriving Mexico this very early, after breakfast, what is there yet to do, as we understand the hotels in Mexico's check in are after 3 in the afternoon...is there such a think locking luggages somewhere in the city? Thank you so very much!! Anthony and Marie
Dear VT'ers, THANK YOU FOR TAKING YOUR TIME READING OUR POST! Please give us your opinion as this will be our first time to visit Mexico City. Our wish is to find a clean, conviently located or centrally located, safe and budget accommodation. Just as long as this has it' meets what we are looking for, we are easy travellers, but on a budget as our visit to Mexico City is really an excapade for my wife's celebrating her birthday and this was her wish to visit the GUADALUPE CHURCH (the original church). We normally hear mass daily, so, the closer we are to the church the more wonderful our plan is molding. Through internet, we came across this AIR BNB located at La Condesa. It charges forty dollars for the two of us. How centrally located is this area? What we were wishing for is living with a family as this will costs as much less and yet get local tips. To us it is important to have our own bathroom to find ourselves more comfortable. Should anyone out there have any suggestions we certainly appreciate it very much. As soon as we are booked with accommodation, we then can move forward and we wish to start a VT MEETING (does anyone have a good suggestion of a centrally, safe location to hold our VT MEETING? We can't wait for our arrival in Mexico City, it's always been my wish to visit Mexico City. THANK YOU ONE AND ALL!
I am taking my wife to Mexico City for her birthday (next month-April). We live in Spain and are use when traveling we stay in a B&B - that would be centrally located and above all clean, own bathroom and affordable. Would anyone had experience on staying at a B&B in Mexico City and how. Uh does it cost per night? We are not sure if staying in a hotel is mo recommendable as this is our first time to visit Mexico City. Any helpful advise would be greatly appreciated for this matter.

Hello! Any preferences for a good street map for Mexico City. I often use the map set that is in my DK Eyewitness Guide, but the guide I have is for Mexico, not Mexico City, so there is an abbreviated map in a smaller section that covers Mexico City. I looked up Streetwise maps for reviews online,and while convenient, the maps do not get a great review because they apparently leave a lot of details. I like to plot specific restaurants on my map before I go, so I prefer a map that shows all the streets. What do to! Thanks.
Hi! I'm going to Mexico City at the end of March. I am having trouble finding information online about what performing arts (orchestra, opera, plays, ballet, etc.) will be going on during the last of March and beginning of April. When I go to Ticketmaster.com.mx, for example, I can only find events listed until the end of February. Is this normal? Any suggestions for other online sites that can tell me what events will be put on when I am visiting? I am concerned about tickets for events not being available when I arrive. I'd like to know , for example what is going on at the Bellas Artes, but also, it would be lovely to attend some church concerts. How do I find out this information now? I'd also like to know if I can purchase tickets directly from the box office from such places such as Bellas Artes to avoid a Ticketmaster charge. Thanks.
Hi! I will be leaving Mexico City on a 7:30 pm flight to return to California, USA Easter Day, but would like to see some of the Easter activities during the day. Any suggestions? Thanks.
We'll be in Mexico City for the holidays. Christmas Day is covered, but we're searching for things to do on the 26th...so anyone with a handle on Polanco Shops, Condesa Cafes, etc....please let us know where to go on that sleepy Monday.
Anyone know where there is a good souvenir shop in Mexico City? Specifically I want to get fridge magnets! I thought I would be tripping over them but I'm not! Thanks, John
Husband and I (travmad, previous post) are arriving in Mexico City on Christmas Eve early afternoon. We generally do not book lodging in advance in international travel. I understand Christmas is a family holiday and I appreciate the previous tips regarding restaurants closing early, posadas, midnight mass, etc. Is it necessary to book a room in advance on this holiday? Thanks!
My wife and I will be in Mexico City for Christmas, since we have not been here for Christmas before. Is there something that you would recommend we experience or visit that is only around during Christmas?

Has anybody attended Guadalupe's feast day at the Basilica? Do you have any words of advice for me? I feel very much at home in Mexico City, so I think I'm ready to take on the challenge of the huge crowds I've read show up for this day. I know a a lot of pickpockets will be there and I'm prepared for that, and I've read the subway won't be stopping at La Villa as it usually does so the walk to the Basilica from the Metro will be longer than usual, and that's not a problem. Besides a couple of You Tube videos I've watched of December 12, that's about the extent of my 'knowledge.' I will appreciate anything you can tell me about what to expect. Thank you.
I am trying to plan a trip with my wife to Mexico and thought we maybe would spend some time in Mexico City. Im wondering where might be some good places to stay and things to do for a few days. Thank you!
