      Hola! We will be in Mexico City for two days on 24 and 25 of December 2014. Can you please advise where is the best area to explore in such a short time frame (where to stay, what to see etc.) We are a young couple that enjoy art, eating/drinking, people watching, markets etc.

      Also I've heard that a lot of the city will be closed these two days given it is Christmas? Can you please advise?
      Thank you.

    • Geli Dolls /Munecas Geli

      by aimey8808 Online Now Apr 14, 2014 at 12:33 PM

      I currently live in NY, but was looking for someone who is traveling to Mexico City.

      My sister in law bought me a beautiful doll last year when she was on vacation (they are called Munecas Geli) and they only sell them in Mexico City. They are 100% vinyl and have long realistic eyelashes. From what i have researched online, they are sold in the stores Sanborn & Liverpool (I'm not sure if she got them there as well). Anyways, my niece's birthday is coming up, and I would love to get her a Geli doll. The problem I am having is that shipping takes too long from Mexico (about a month). I was wondering if anyone out there is willing to help me by bringing one back to the US (I'll pay for shipping from your state to mine). Does anyone have a clue about these dolls? Or is anyone out there who is traveling now or soon willing to help me? Please email me at

    • airport to city

      by travelling_princess8 Online Now Mar 5, 2014 at 9:46 PM

      We will be overnighting in Mexico City between flights. We arrive in MEX at 9:30pm, and our flight out the next morning leaves at 7:30am. How far is the airport from the City? Should we book a hotel room near the airport? Or are we sufficiently close enough to the City, and is there quick and efficient transportation, that we could go into the City?

      Advice request

      by MarkR80 Online Now Feb 17, 2014 at 2:25 PM

      I'll be spending a few days in DF in March and I was hoping you could give me some feedback on my self-planned itinerary.

      I'll arrive Saturday afternoon, no plans for that evening (advice?)

      Sunday I've booked a Mexico City tour and a trip to ballet folklorico that evening.

      Monday I plan on taking a hot-air balloon ride and then a guided tour of Teotihuacan (by Ceetiz. Apparently the other outfits online won't book me because they have a two person minimum and I'm travelling alone)
      I have no plans for Monday evening either, so can you advise?

      Tuesday I want to focus on the Museo Antropologico and perhaps see more of Chapultapec if time allows. That night I've booked a trip to see La Lucha Libre.

      My interests are primarily cultural, as I'm not really into the night life. I'd love to see Coyoacan, marketplaces (particularly the withcraft market), the floating gardens, and the murals of Diego Rivera. The problem is that I understand a lot of these may not be suitable for evening visits. Can you give me your take?

      Thanks for any help you can provide.

    • Rent in Condesa or Roma Norte

      by reredogs Online Now Dec 17, 2013 at 9:40 PM

      I've tried to do a search but a lot of threads about rent in Condesa / Roma Norte are around 5-7 years old. What is the average rent in Condesa or Roma for a 2-br semi or furnished apartment?

      The average price I've seen on craigslist,, are around 15,000-20,000MXN. Is this the average rent in these areas? Or can we find something cheaper?

      Lastly, how do we commute from Condesa or Roma to Paseo Reforma, near Cinepolis Diana?

      Thank you very much.

      We are planning a trip to Mexico City (we live in Brazil) and are wondering about shopping. We are mostly interested in electronics and clothes. We could fly via Florida to do our shopping there. This would be quite expensive in fares. So I am wondering if the goods for sale in Mexico are similar in price, quality and choice as in the USA.

    • Mexico City Market Shopping Questions

      by Iheartgermany Online Now Oct 4, 2013 at 1:52 PM

      Hi All,

      I'm going to Mexico City in a month and plan to hit several outdoor markets. I'm trying to avoid wandering aimlessly around and losing a whole lot of time so I have several questions I was hoping to get answers to.

      First off, I'll be looking for the usual tourist stuff like antiques and reproductions (reasonably priced only), hand forged iron hardware, old architectural pieces (small enough to fit in a suitcase) and typical religious items (retablo, santos, etc..). I planned on going to the Mercado Lagunilla, Mercado Ciudadela, Mercado Insurgentes, Bazar de Antiguedades and the San Jacinto.

      1. I know the Lagunilla market is quite large so can anyone tell me what section I would find what I am looking for? Perhaps a landmark or the cross streets of where I should start?

      2. Are the other markets I planned on visiting easy to navigate? If not, can you offer any tips?

      3. This may be a stupid question but the Ciudadela market is in the Plaza de La Ciudadela roughly a 1/2 hr walk from Lagunilla, correct?

      4. If you have an opinion of the markets I mentioned in reference to what I'm interested in shopping for, I would love to hear what you have to say.

      Thanks much in advance.

      Where to stay in Mexico City to avoid the traffic problem due to the protests?

      by bminorca Online Now Sep 17, 2013 at 11:10 AM


      I am wondering if anyone could please help me figure out where to stay in Mexico City. I heard that there was a traffic problem recently. Here are my requirements.

      1. In an area where the GrayLine tour can pick me up ( says "Mexico City Area Hotels").
      2. The area is safe.
      3. To avoid the traffic problem.

      Initially I was thinking about Zocalo. But that seems to be the center of the protests.

      From TLC Airport to downtown Mexico City (Zocalo area) late at night?

      I have a flight arriving to TLC at 11:30pm. How long and how much would a taxi be from there to the Zocalo area? Is it easy/safe to find taxis there that late?

      Or would I be better off flying into MEX? It's a little more expensive (about $50) but seems like a much bigger, safer airport that late?
