Review

Fourth edition of this popular guidebook boasts a thorough update. The guide showcases popular and eclectic destinations in the Distrito Federal. The first edition won Mexico's Pluma de Plata Award, and this edition is even better. Sidebars examine environmental issues, Chilango-style cooking and nearby places to visit. --Planeta.com, December 2008

I picked up the previous edition of this book on a whim before a two-week trip to Mexico City a few years ago, and liked it so much that I got myself the new edition for another recent trip. It gives you an excellent overview of the basic stuff, but never fails to come up with new and interesting ideas and angles, even if you already know the city quite well. I am very impressed with the authors' ability to convey a spot-on sense of how the city is like. This guide has never failed me. To me, it's a considerably better quality product than the usual travel guides and therefore highly recommended.

I bought this when a previous edition of the same guidebook began to deteriorate physically, after constant use on several trips!

This book is compact, easy to carry. It is well written - concise, intelligent, and informative. I've been getting to know Mexico City over the last few years through repeated visits, and so far this book hasn't let me down. I'm particularly interested in cultural, architectural, and historical sites, and the Moon Handbook has directed me to many wonderful things, some well frequented by tourists, others less so. I've found it to be a perfect combination of seriousness and brevity.

This is a superb guidebook. Thorough, yet concise. Well-written and well-organized. Good maps. Sturdy construction. Ideal size for carrying. Lots of reviews and suggestions. Interesting to read. Covers all of Mexico City and day-trip destinations.

This is a good Mexico City book, though getting a little old. It also isn't quite as user-friendly as it could be. I don't like the really glitzy books ... and this isn't that. But somehow it didn't seem quite the book to make you feel real comfortable as a new comer to Mexico City. One suggestion would be more helpful Spanish phrases.

My wife and I used this for a Christmas visit to Mexico City.
The writing style is very good - fluid, easy reading without dumbing it down for our low attention span age.

When it was accurate, it was very informative and useful.

But...it is getting long in the tooth, which makes any of the information in it a bit hit & miss... we trekked across the city a couple of times to find that a restaurant wasn't there any more, etc.

So I give this 3 stars for being potentially excellent -- if only it would be updated.

This is an adequate guide book on Mexico City and since it is the only one I was able to find that focused exclusively on the Distrito Federal, I suppose it's the best!
