Buy taxi voucher at the airport kiosk - well signed - hand over to taxi driver - set price - all paid no extras. Drive to hotel took about 20 mins
Hotel perfectly fine - Ground floor double bedroom, basic but adequate and better than expected for the price. Bathroom clean, good strong shower - no great outlook - but I wasn't in much..... Staff helpful and friendly, food limited but cheap. Buffet breakfast, chillis, pasta, egg, sausage adequate - plenty of coffee - snack dinner avocado and tuna, coffee £3.50. Mexico one big traffic jam many shopping areas, you can almost walk anywhere from the hotel. Forget the so called - artisan markets in Mexico city - all selling the same things - probably made in China. I felt quite safe as a female single traveller walked all around the main areas without any problems.
Museum of Anthropology well worth a visit - explains the whole history beautifully visual. Take the buses, very cheap and easy to use.
Pyramids at Teotihuacan a really good tour. I booked with Monopolis tours excellent knowledgeable guide and very good English, small mini bus 12 people - all Spanish speaking South American except me - but guide translated everything. Good tour included other important sites, basilika etc. Obligatory artisan stops - I have a new found respect for the humble cactus - so many uses - but very expensive tequila!
Tour Cost 500 pesos ( £25) reasonable for distance, time and knowledge - lunch not included - stopped at a local ( bit touristy place) but had the set meal as advised by the other S Americans and quite happy with the choice.
Also took the hop on hop off bus tour very convenient - alight where you fancy.
I was happy to leave the noise and clamour of the City and moved on to Puerta Vallarta - easy flight - marvellous place!!
