A cross between a guidebook and travelogue, this briefs the traveler, starts him from Heustom, preferably by car, leads him through Mexico City, Guernavaca, Taxec, Aeapul, Pax, Yucatan, etc. Interlaced with heavy sprinkling of historic, architectural and data are road routes, lists of hotels and restaurants, leads on when to tip, when and how much. The appendices include basic rules of Mexican pronunciation, lists of holidays and fiestas. As pleasure reading, there's little of personal interest, too much functional detail. But as a handbook for the tourist, the practical detail beg down in descriptions of what the traveller will see for himself. Nonetheless, with the tremendous increase of travel in Mexico, this has its place.
