Mexico City: A Travel Guide Updated 2021!

Mexico City: A Travel Guide Updated 2021!

Sharing is caring!

The Mexico City Travel Guide that I’ve been talking about for months is finally here. I have poured my heart and soul into this guidebook. I’ve toured the city, searched for unique sites to enjoy, eaten my fair share of Mexican delights, and put it all together in what I hope is an easy-to-read digital guide that you can take you with all over Mexico City.

The book was updated in February 2021 to reflect all of the changes that have occured in the city during 2020. Unfortunately, many small businesses, boutique hotels, and restaurants, and bars around the city were unable to reopen their doors after suffering financially during the pandemic. 

The book includes an extensive table of contents, a street food guide, the best tour companies to book with, history about each of the six neighborhoods that are broken down throughout the guide. You’ll get recommendations for things to do as well as the best hotels, restaurants, bars, and cafes in each of the different neighborhoods mentioned.

I’ve also included a link to a map where you will find every single place listed in the book. You can download this map straight to your phone and take it with you as you explore Mexico City.

Why I Wrote a Mexico City Guidebook

Just before I moved to Mexico City, I did a ton of research on all of the best restaurants, bars, places to hang out, and tourist spots too of course. The trouble was, two years ago there simply wasn’t that much information available in English. When I arrived, I was disappointed to constantly find myself surrounded by other tourists who’d read the same two or three websites about Mexico City that I had.

I decided early on that I wanted to make it my mission to help others who wanted to see more of Mexico City. As I’ve gotten to know this amazing metropolis over the years, I’ve come to see this project not only as a way to show you some cool spots, but also as a tool to let the world know just how awesome Mexico City really is.

What You’ll Find Inside My Mexico City Travel Guide

This book contains all of the things that I love. Inside you’ll find tips for visitors like what street foods to discover and how to get around the city on public transport.

You’ll also find neighborhood guides for my favorite areas: Centro Historico, La Roma, La Condesa, Juarez, Coyoacán, and Polanco. Each neighborhood guide is packed with things to do, places to eat, boutique hotels (you won’t find any chain hotels in this book!), and my favorite bars and cafes in each neighborhood.

In every neighborhood chapter, you’ll also find a map that shows you exactly where the different recommended hotels, restaurants, and bars are located with street names and points of interest labeled.

I’ve written about safety in Mexico City, where to get the best street food, and day trips that are worth making time for in your itinerary.

This book is truly everything I know about Mexico City packed into over 100 digital pages.

This book is the most comprehensive Mexico City guide out there at the moment, I’m certain of that.

Mexico City really has a lot to offer. I'm sure we'll pass through again, though we tend to stay in smaller towns when possible. Thanks for sharing!

Laura, is the Mexico City book available in hard copy. It would save me the bother of printing it for myself. My wife and I are planning to be there over Mardi Gras.
