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. We found it all, and a lot more, while making side trips to Cancún and Puerto Vallarta.

9 Mexico City Mags

Judge the town by its covers: Fashion newspaper Folio, the downtown El Fanzine, and art-heavy La Tempestad all celebrate Mexico City’s vibrant street culture, while stylish Animal and 192 go glossy. Vice Mexico does the brand’s thing across the border, while Marvin focuses on gay culture, and the thematic quarterly DF por Travesías and monthly Chilango keep travelers posted on off-the-beaten-path attractions.
