    Out In Mexico: Your Guide to Mexico City, Puerto Vallarta, and Cancún Starts Here

    Your guide to Mexico City, Puerto Vallarta, and Cancún starts here Let our editors and contributors loose in Mexico for a week and what do you come back with—apart from a mezcal hangover? We hit plenty of bars, but the real discovery was Mexico City's dynamic culture and vivacious spirit: from a boy-turned-girl club queen to a thriving gay soccer league; from an elegant rooftop restaurant to the best tortilla soup ever; from a chic hotel hideaway in Condesa to an island of delightfully creepy dolls in Xochimilco.

    Zemmoa: How a fey schoolboy with big dreams became Mexico City’s reigning disco queen

    How a fey schoolboy with big dreams became Mexico City’s reigning disco queen Photograph by Fabiola Zamora Mexican singer Zemmoa’s first memory is of The Little Mermaid, and—thanks to Ariel, the lovelorn heroine trapped under the sea — it was formative. “Since the beginning, I felt like I always wanted to be part of another world,” she says. “I felt like a mermaid in the sea wanting to get out.” She wanted a hada madrina, a fairy godmother, and she also wanted attention. Though uncomfortable with the

    Los Lobos: Mexico City’s gay football players

    Mexico City’s gay football players use sports to expand rights Photography by Adam Wiseman A sure-fire way to win friends and influence people in Mexico is to be good at football, or as we call it, soccer. It’s more than Mexico’s national pastime; it’s also one of its earliest political vehicles. In 1910, after the revolution, the government cultivated goodwill by sponsoring teams and building fields, a method that won over voters and helped level the proverbial — and literal — playing field for the working class.

    Disco Ruido: The men behind Mexico’s electro-pop revival

    The men behind Mexico’s electro-pop revival Photograph by Adam Wiseman If you think Mexican music is defined by sultry boleros, you must be going to all the wrong places. There are as many musical styles as there are neighborhoods in sprawling Mexico City, but in the clubs around posh Condesa and boho Roma, electronica prevails. It hasn’t always been that way. “For a long time, the clubbing scene in Mexico was really bad — at least for us,” says Julian Placencia, frontman for Disco Ruido, an electronic dance band

    Inside Mexico City: Visit Condesa/Roma

    Why these boho neighborhoods will keep you coming back for more Photo (above) by Aaron Hicklin If the neighboring hoods of Condesa and Roma don’t disabuse you of any ideas of Mexico City as a noisy, dirty, polluted metropolis, nothing will. This gentrified area, with its art nouveau architecture and café society, could be twinned with New York City’s West Village or L.A.’s Silver Lake, but with several advantages over those boho counterparts, including more trees and better nightlife.

    White Spider: The Mexico City art collective keeps things interesting

    The Mexico City art collective keeps things interesting An abandoned Porfirian house. Office buildings. A parking garage. These are the disparate spaces in which the two-year-old art collective White Spider has mounted some of its 14-plus shows. “We wanted to show how an art exhibition should be,” says Karen Huber, the group’s primary curator. Rather than leaving the artistic experience in prescriptive museums or pristine galleries, White Spider wants the viewer to take art with them. White Spider invokes the
