Newbie!!

Hello my name is Stephanie
I am a 46 yr old single female, empty nester. My job allows me to live where I want as long as I have Internet I love visiting Playa and Cancun and decided to stay a few months !
I am looking to rent an apt for Jan, Feb and March 2015 I think I have one but wanted any advice before I put money down. I appreciate any ideas.
I went through Vivanuncios and found a 1 bedroom apt on 5th ave for 9000 pesos a month. Does this sound okay?
Have any of you had dealings with

Hmmm. Ok. That narrows it down to forty blocks
The reason I ask is that some areas of 5th are very very noisy

For 9000 pesos per month, does that include AC?

I'd ask for the cross street. I can't pick it out from the photo, although someone with younger eyes might!

5th and 12th

she wants me to use paypal to put down my deposit and then pay the rest in cash when I get there.

Have any of you done it this way?

Gracias!

Paying a deposit by Paypal seems ok to me, and cash is still king here.

But you do know about 12th street right?

5th and 12th???
Don't get it.
The loudest part of town. All night long.
12th is the nightclub street. Awful, if you want to sleep.
Run away from that apartment.

Yeah, 12th is notoriously, excruciatingly, relentlessly noisy.

if I were in the rental business, and I wanted a happy client as opposed to an angry one, I would ask my 46 year old single female client if they took up nightly partying until 7am when they emptied their nest. . .
