My husband and I are considering visiting Mexico City between Christmas and New Years. We'd return on New Years Day. Will attractions (museums, shops, restaurants, etc) be closed that week, and will the city be relatively quiet? Or is it a good time to visit? I know the weather is a little cooler that time of year.
Also, we typically rent an apartment when we travel - which interesting (and safe) neighborhoods should we consider staying in? My (relatively limited) knowledge is that Condesa is a good one. We live in NYC so are pretty city-savvy - just want to stay amongst cool shops and restaurants and bars - the Brooklyn or West Village of Mexico City, if you will).
Many thanks! Muchas Gracias!
