Mexico City vs Guadalajara

Although we have been on many enjoyable visits to Mexico City, we have never actually been in Guadalajara. I am under the impression that it's somewhat provisional. Perhaps I'm wrong.

Money rates right now in Oaxaca State

I'm as always carrying cash as we'll only be here a month. Best exchange I received so far was 14.05 per US dollar in Huatalco.

Novia is using ATMs. Her best rate was 14.34 at ATM in ADO station in PE; worst rate was 13.20 also in PE.

Canadians are not happy with rates they are getting!

Mexico CIty to Managua

I have 3 weeks to get from DF to Managua and want to see Oaxaca, Puerto Escondido and Lake Atitlan along the way. Is this possible? Any recommendations for routes and affordable travel are appreciated. Since time is limited, flying might be my best option. As a solo female, the safest route/experience is my main priority. Thanks!
