Description

Full of details on cheap places to stay and to eat, on local buses and trains, and on beaches and bars, this guide also covers the less expected, from the realities of modern Mexican life to the obscurities of Mayan ritual. Whether the reader is after the high life of Acapulco or remote Zapotec ruins, Caribbean islands or mountain villages, this guide gives all the information needed. There are descriptions of the archaeological sites - many with plans - and a survival guide to the world's most populous city.show more
