A fine guide for planning a trip to, and exploring Mexico
on February 13, 2016
I bought this guide for a recent trip to Mexico that included 3 days in Mexico City and a week in the Yucatan. The book helped us plan our trip in the Yucatan, with good information on small towns and recommended sights in them . We tried a couple of the recommended restaurants, and they were good. The colorful images give you a sense of what to expect, and the walking tours with their detailed maps and directions are informative. One of the features that stood out for me are the good layout maps of the archaeological sites such as Chichen Itza and Izamal, with snippet descriptions of the key structures - by no means exhaustive, but adequate. Despite the breadth that it covers, the book often surprises you with details of specific locations, for e.g. the layout and highlights of the National Museum of Anthropology in Mexico City. Overall, happy with the purchase. This was the only guide I used, so I cannot speak for how it compares to other guides.
