The Mexico guide is a good, complete guide. Filled with information, history and beautiful pictures about almost every corner of this gorgeous country. Reading the whole book gives you a good update on your history and geography knowledge! (Something to do if you are trekking around by bus like I did!)
I have always been satisfied with the LP guides. The information given is good, just what you need to get around. The only negative with this book (and the reason I give it 4 and not 5 stars) is that it was completely outdated on prices etc. Another thing (that goes for most of the travel guides) is that many of the hotels that are listed in the book has gotten so much (too much?) business so that the service is down to a minimum. This we found especially in Isla Mujeres where the price was the double of what the book said, and really lousy customer service, if any.
I've been living in Mexico for over 15 years and I've been using this book in all my travels ever since I got it. The problem is that this edition is from 2000, and things in Mexico change a lot. The prices are all wrong (much, much cheaper than they actually are), the directions on getting to places are outdated (there are over 1000km. of new highways and the conditions change drastically from season to season), the hours are not always right (museums, archeological sites, churches, etc.).
This book used to be a great source for the budget traveler as well as the a-little-more-money one, unfortunaltely it has not been updated in a long time. Now I use it only as a reference on interesting places and things to do wherever I may be going. If you're interested in getting "off the beaten track" this book has little to offer, it's main focus is on the "touristy" Mexico.
Lonely Planet makes great books, they just should keep them updated more frequently. Hope this helps.

OK, you'll get tons of practical information with this one, with pages of hotels sandwitched between listings of restaurants and yellow pages of bus lines. Read morePublished on January 21, 2003
