Planned climbs are Iztaccihuatl, La Malinche, Cofre de Perote, and Orizaba. If time is available, Colima, Paricutin, and Ajusco could also be climbed. Rafting is also possible.
I expect the cost of the trip (without the rafting) to be around $500 plus airfare. We're planning on using public transport, budget hotels, and not using guides.
My Spanish is rusty, but it should be enough to get along.
Several years ago I also have climbed Popocatépetl and Nevado Toluca.

Plus, if you want to see some of the other sites, having a car is a major pain in most of the cities and archeological sites. Get the Lonely Planet, Rough Guide, or Moon guidebooks. They have good information on bus routes, etc.
