About This Book

One Hundred & One Beautiful Small Towns in Mexico broadens the successful One Hundred & One Towns series with a tour through the virgin coastal hamlets, sun-kissed terra-cotta villages, and lush green hilltop towns that abound in Mexico. This is the armchair traveler’s escape and the serious tourist’s companion, featuring exceptional photography referencing a rich cultural background steeped in ancient Mayan folklore and religious tradition. This book ventures through the countryside providing in-depth histories of the smaller, less trodden towns that speckle Mexico’s varied terrain, and introduces readers to the sights, sounds, and scents that are all a part of Mexico’s powerful allure. Towns are organized by region and are accompanied by information on local delicacies, nightlife, and must-see hot spots. A complete appendix with addresses and phone numbers of recommended hotels, villas, bed-and-breakfasts, restaurants, and more can be found at the back of the book, as well as a suggested reading list to round out your trip.

  • "The stunning photographs by Sinchez and Oropeza's chatty text are reason enough to forget about trans-Atlantic's time to discover new destinations--not too far from home." ~El Paso Times

    "Anyone is bound to be surprised by the diversity of towns profiled here." ~The Chicago Tribune

    "Most of us go to our familiar corner of Mexico, bask in the sun and leave with a smile. The fact that dozens of other beautiful towns in this sprawling country remain unexplored never fazed us. That is, until we opened (this book)." ~Endless Vacation
