Overview

A complete guide to the populous Mexican capitol and surrounding areas.
Welcome to Mexico City, the oldest city in the Americas and one of the most fascinating cities in the world. Zain Dean introduces you to its unique mix of ancient empire and modern, sophisticated society: “If you’re willing to brave its often misunderstood exterior,” he writes, “you’ll be rewarded by a city that has been fascinating adventurers, wanderers, and explorers for thousands of years.” Mexico’s capital and its environs offer pre-Hispanic ruins and magnificent temples, as well as ritzy retreats, spectacular volcanoes, and picturesque historic areas. You’ll also find dining, shopping, and accommodations to suit every budget.
Sections thoughtfully and thoroughly cover the myths and realities of travel in Mexico, language and monetary concerns, and health and safety issues. More than 100 photographs and detailed maps round out the package, making this guidebook an indispensable resource.
