mexico city for 3 weeks

Hello all of you.

I am planning a 3 weeks vacation to mexico city in march 2006, and was wondering if it would be best for me to rent an appartment or stay in hotel ??

I am a 50 years old single man, first time in mexico,do not speak spanish, but i do not see it as a problem, just a challenge.

Since i am a very lazy traveller,start moving around 11 in the morning

.I am just wondering if this enough time to visit mexico city and if an appartment is better ,does any one know any with a balcony ??

and last i am planning to see the most of mexico city and it s surrounding so any itinery would be greatly appreciated

thank you

sorry for my english i am french

Three and one-half weeks is a good amount of time to get acquainted with Mexico City. Not only can you explore the city itself, but make day-trips into the surrounding area.

Renting an apartment will cost you less than renting a hotel room. If the lesser amount of service provided by renting an apartment vs. renting a room in a hotel will be acceptable to you, then check the three listings below as possibilities:

Avilla Apartments-Hotel

Colonia Tabacalaria

Near Paseo de la Reforma and Revolution Monument

MX$200-250 per night

Website: http://www.hotel-departamentos-avilla.com/

Suites Riviera

Colonia Condesa

MX$300-400 per night (1 or 2 bedrooms)

Website: http://www.netmx.com.mx/suites/riveng.htm

Casa Tarami

Colonia Cuauhtemoc

Near Circuito Interior Expressway and Rio Mississippi/Melchor Ocompo

Rented on a weekly (US$250) or monthly (US$550) basis.

As for your question about itinerary: Elsewhere on this TA website you'll find wonderful suggestions for attractions to see in the Mexico City area. Use the search box at the upper right corner of this page and enter "Mexico City" and the list, and other things, will appear.

Also, get yourself a copy of the Lonely Planet or Moon Handbooks guides to Mexico and/or Mexico City. Those books will answer most of your questions and they'll lead you in the right direction.

Enjoy the adventure!
