LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

T raveling in Mexico: Sure, the bordertowns are generally tourist traps and Mexico City has the world's worst pollution. But what about all the other places in-between? Seasoned tourists love them because they're relatively inexpensive, they're exotic, and there are sparsely populated beaches aplenty. Want to know more? Writers at the Austin Chronicle have taken a look at several of the cities and resorts worth your time in the Big Tamale. And they've even thrown in a photo essay and a review of some of the country's finest dining establishments for good measure. So take a look. Es muy bueno!
