Product Description

About the Author

Julie Doherty Meade grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area and spent her childhood hiking, camping, and traveling throughout the Golden State. After graduating from college, she took her first trip to Mexico, where she was immediately drawn to the country's warm people and fascinating culture. The following year, Julie returned to Mexico and decided to extend her stay indefinitely.

For almost ten years, Julie lived, worked, and traveled throughout Mexico. She saw Zapatista leader Subcomandante Marcos speak to a crowd in San Cristobal de las Casas, helped run a fine-art gallery in San Miguel de Allende, and taught English to five-year-olds in Mexico City. During her years in the capital, she was schooled in advanced Mexican slang, developed a strong affinity for early-morning cafe con leche in old Chinese coffee shops, and spent hours seeking out the best bookstores, most interesting architecture, and tastiest bites in the city's diverse neighborhoods.

Julie currently lives in Brooklyn with her husband, Arturo, her son, Mariano, and her Chihuahua, Tequila. She writes and copyedits for several New York publications and visits Mexico every chance she gets. Julie is also the author of Moon San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato & the Bajio and Moon Living Abroad in Mexico.

HASH(0x9f041528) out of 5 stars Comprehensive, informative, interesting, very useful Sept. 30 2014
By Chelydra - Published on
Format: Paperback
If you are familiar with Lonely Planet travel guides, this one on Mexico City follows a similar format. Consequently, it contains useful text mainly rather than lots of pictures as you find in DK Eyewitness Travel guides. Since the author had lived in Mexico City for many years, she has first-hand experience of the city from her residence there. The guide includes detailed descriptions, maps, attractions, restaurants, hotels, shopping, museums, galleries and the like. Its coverage is comprehensive, thorough, well written and especially helpful to travelers visiting for the first time. The size is convenient for carrying with you for reference in the course of sightseeing. At the time of my writing this review, it is likely the most up-to-date and exhaustive of the guides to Mexico City currently available. Worth the price and reading before you go.

HASH(0x9f04157c) out of 5 stars Broken down by area/neighborhood Sept. 23 2014

Visiting Mexico city for a couple of days, this book has proved to be a good guide in steering me through almost everything I wanted to do.

Few caveats that you can just get online - Download the Metro & Metro Bus pdf on your phone. There are no maps available at stations. Other than that, this guide is a gem.

Have fun!

HASH(0x9f041858) out of 5 stars Good Guide April 6 2015
By Ship - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This guide is probably the best single book you can get for Mexico City. The problem is that even this guide is not comprehensive. I wish it would have more restaurant reviews and that all of its reviews indicated whether or not a restaurant takes credit cards (Fodor's Mexico guide does this). Like most Americans travelling in Mexico, I didn't have data service, which makes figuring something like this out when I was looking for a place to eat on the fly tricky. If I'm going to a nice restaurant later, I don't want to have to carry 80 dollars worth of pesos all day if I don't have to.

The maps are good, but would be greatly enhanced by better indicating where the subway goes. This guide shows stations (not very clearly), but not where the lines go. It also doesn't include a system map, which to me is a no-brainer (maybe copyright issues?). I took the affordable and easy to use Mexico City subway a lot and downloading a map helped me a lot; it would have been nice if I could have used this book for that too.
HASH(0x9f041750) out of 5 stars well worth it if you're headed to DF Jan. 4 2015

Excellent guide. Delivered us to several highlights grand and hidden. Bonus points for highlighting vegetarian food options, a key worry in advance of the trip but one that proved groundless thanks to DF's amazing food scene and this guide's guidance.

HASH(0x9f04193c) out of 5 stars Maps illegible on Kindle Feb. 23 2015
By Jonathan Francis Roberts - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Kindle edition - maps are illegible. Other than that the book is OK but nothing special - blatant imitation of Lonely Planet style and layout and nothing really that distinguishes it from the pack. Disappointing purchase
