And that is just the beginning.
So how to figure out where to go? With so many choices?
Buy this book. I live in Mexico, and I can be intimidated by how big Mexico City is and overwhelmed by the variety of choices. But with this guide book I have gone on wonderful walks in beautiful neighborhoods, seen some amazing art, and eaten some world class food. Do yourself a favor.
The book is light in weight and might be useful. Just don't expect too much.
We were only there for 4 days but the author's advice and suggested walking tours were extremely helpful in each part of the city we visited. We rode the metro too - it's a lot less crowded after 10.
The author has some nice restaurant suggestions, but we used our phones for Yelp and Trip Advisor, since more restaurants have opened since then. I'm so glad this book was available. We just got back and can't wait to visit again!
Jim has a very good Mexico City blog as well.
