Cancun on a budget?

I'm going to be spending a couple of weeks in the yucatan peninsula with my girlfriend, mostly staying in inexpensive hotels and hostels. We're flying home out of cancun, and her parents are going to meet us there for a few days. We don't have a huge budget, but would like to spend a couple of nights at a decent hotel with a nice pool. Being all inclusive isn't important to us, if there are decent restaurants nearby. In fact, being on the beach isn't that important, if we can get to it without too much hassle. Any suggestions for places to stay? I'd like it to be less than $100 a night per person.

All-Inclusives should be easy, right?

In about a month, 3 friends and I are going to an all-inclusive in Cancun. I'm fairly well-travelled, but I prefer going to cities and exploring around, so I've never done a cruise or any type of beachy resort vacation. What kind of tips/tricks does Metafilter have for getting the most out of relaxing, and drinking tropical drinks on the beach all day? [more inside]

safety in mexico city

Travelers of Latin America! Help me understand the current general safety/travel risk in Mexico City relative to other places I know well (Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo Lima, and Tacna/Arica). There's a lot of news about what's going on in the north but I know less about the DF and how it measures up - in statistics or "feeling" - against other areas. Do you know the DF and one of the other areas? What should I know? Mostly, this is to help my mom feel better about the idea of my visiting for 7-10 days. [more inside]

Best non-expensive hotel in Oaxaca?

Best reasonably priced hotel in Oaxaca? We're two people, traveling to Oaxaca the week after Labor Day. In search of a not too pricey hotel to stay in for a few nights at the beginning of our stay...and maybe a hotel to splurge on for one night at the end. Ideas? Anyone ever stated at the Hotel Monte Alban on the Zocalo? Or Casa Oaxaca? Those are the two we're thinking of for moderate and splurge, respectively.
