Looking for not super fancy but not budget accommodations for me and my bf in Mexico city (maybe like $150-$200/night) and maybe for a night or two outside the city if any overnight trips are worth it. Not looking to stay in a chain like the Sheraton or anything.
Interests: hiking, vegetarian restaurants or places where I can eat easily, art, interesting markets, local history and geology
We saw a hike up one of the volcanoes to the east of the city was recommended before, is it worth finding a place to stay up there and do two days or is it easy enough to just go back to the city?
Are there any special spots or interesting destinations that we should go to?
Should we rent a car to go places or go with public transport/official taxis?
(We've only been to Cabo and Baja before so this part of Mexico is totally new to both of us).
