Does anyone have any suggestions of where my husband and I can go for a couple days?

The question came up when we heard the price on Cancun hotels. We just want to go somewhere different without breaking the budget. We were hoping to go somewhere we could go dressed up one night, maybe eat out one night, listen to nightclub music and be fairly safe. We don't have to go near the ocean because we live a few blocks from the ocean now. We were hoping for someplace that won't break the budget. Any suggestions?

If you don't already know the Colonial cities, I would suggest San Miguel de Allende or Zacatecas. Both are very beautiful with a lot of nightlife, nice restaurants and plenty of things to do during the day as well. If you haven't been to Mexico City, you might want to go there, there is a huge range of prices for everything, I can recommend a very nice hotel, off the beaten path a bit, but connected to downtown by the Metrobus. Did you have anything in particular you wanted to do besides nightlife? If you do decide on Zacatecas or DF I can suggest nice places to stay that won't break the budget, or did you have a price range in mind that you wanted to spend?

I've always loved Taxco, Guerrero as a weekend getaway...not sure how close that is to you.

Ah, yes, didn't think of Taxco, it's beautiful, be prepared to walk up and down a lot, or take one of the combis that circulate through town. I also love Puebla, it's probably my favorite city in Mexico.

Well... The Cancun hotel was about $70 - $100 per night off season all inclusive including all the food. I think I was hoping for something a little lower. My husband eats constantly so I was thinking all inclusive was the way to go. I can't stress enough the eating situation with my husband. Indirectly I was hoping for some sort of package deal. I don't know if thats possible or if we would have better luck staying somewhere thats simply all inclusive so all food is covered. Or so we don't break the bank is it better to stay at a 'cheap' but safe hotel and eat off the street?

I think its difficult for me because I'm used to Vegas packages that include airfare and everything for a pretty low price. We were wanting to go somewhere for 3 days - 4 nights. Somewhere with hopefully impressive views. My husband likes swimming and fishing. If I could charter some sort of fishing thing for him he would think that was cool. I like shopping, architecture and art museums.

I will check into all the cities listed, thanks all.

Why is this even a question, the answer is clearly Oaxaca.

Oaxaca is a good choice, cheaper. Maybe Acapulco. I am going next week for a few days myself.
