How expensive is Mexico City? I want to spend one week there in April - just enjoying the city buzz and practicing my aweful Spanish. If I want a mix of local fare at local places, as well as occassional dinners at fancier places, what will it cost me? How about local, non-chain hotels? How about taxies . . what does it cost to take a taxie 10 blocks? I would appreicate any advise! Thanks!
