Mexico City Links

Because we visit Mexico City so often we frequently get asked for advice. Here you’ll find a variety of resources to help you plan your adventures.

BOOKS

The very first thing you should do if you are staying more than a few days is buy Jim Johnston’s Mexico City – An Opinionated guide for the Curious Traveler.  It is a well written, interesting and very helpful guide.  There are lots of walking tours included.
