The Mexico City based chain of El Péndulo bookstores are a stalwart recommendation when it comes to where to buy your books in the Mexican capital; however, we particularly recommend the Roma branch due to its gorgeous multileveled layout and the balcony seating available in the attached café. Plus, the neighborhood in which it’s situated is tranquil and full to the brim with cultural hotspots perfect for exploring after you buy your books.
Another Mexico City bookstore named after a famous author is Alejandro Rossi. The reasons for recommending this bookstore are threefold; firstly, its architecture is nothing short of spectacular, secondly, the books sold there are fantastic and the layout is unique but easy to navigate, and thirdly, it’s located within the jaw dropping Biblioteca Vasconcelos. Librería Educal Alejandro Rossi is, therefore, unmissable.
