A fully updated edition of the exquisitely illustrated, comprehensive guide that deftly captures Mexico's vibrancy, colour and rich history. From Baja's whale-filled bays and alluring resorts to Mexico City's colonial charm to jungles filled with Mayan ruins, the author describes the best sights to visit - and how to visit them - with plenty of lesser-known ones as well. You'll find 3D drawings, including one of Copper Canyon, and museum floor plans - the Museo de Antropologia in Mexico City, for example. Guided driving tours take you down Baja's coastline and along the road to Mitla, while a stroll around historic Oaxaca is among the featured walking tours. An extensive section on the country's history and culture leads the guide, while wonderfully detailed sidebars - on whale watching, cave painting and Tapiato traditions, for instance - delve deeper into Mexico's allure. And no visitor, equipped with this guide's indispensable regional and neighborhood maps, should get lost.
The guide is divided into 11 sections, beginning with Baja California and continuing on to Northwest Mexico, Northeast Mexico, Central Mexico, Central Pacific States, Mexico City, Around Mexico City, Central Gulf Coast, Oaxaca, Chiapas, and the Yucatan Peninsula.
