  • Publicaciones A La Medida grows

    2011 saw a notable increase in book and guidebook production created especially for Mapas clients, including the Guía aromas y sabores con Patricia Quintana, a celebration of Mexican cuisine (for Banamex) as well as Acuérdate de Acapulco—and the English-language Remember Acapulco—a travel guide to the contemporary city featuring local histories and anecdotes (for the Guerrero State Government). The February 2012 issue of Travesías included a guide to France, Atout France, custom-designed for the French Tourism Office in Mexico; MINI commissioned the Eco chic guide; and we annually publish StyleMap—a pocket-size city guide especially created for foreign visitors (on behalf of the Mexico City municipal government).   

     

  • dF con humor (Humorous dF)

    Mexico City never stops—and that’s why we update our dF guides every year. dF con humor (2011) expands the series that began in 2008 with dF de culto. This time around, we’re focused on Mexico City’s funnest, most carnivalesque pleasures; but as in the past, readers discover hundreds of restaurant, shopping, museum, style, book and art reviews, along with tips for making their way through Mexico City’s more-than-three-ring circus.
