  • Pointers on where to find the finest seafood straight from the sea, the hippest dance clubs right on the beach, and accommodations to suit your taste and budget—whether in the lap of luxury, a beach hut without electricity, a restored hacienda, or a cozy colonial inn
  • First-hand advice on the most dazzling, secluded, or liveliest beaches to suit your taste; the richest dive spots and cenotes; the busiest nesting grounds and flyways for birdwatchers; and the best times and seasons to fish for marlin, tuna, barracuda, and other Caribbean species

  • Insightful commentary on Maya architecture, from Tulum on the coast to Chichén Itzá in the interior, Palenque in Chiapas, and more
  • In-depth coverage of nearby Tabasco & Chiapas, bordering the peninsula, with a strong indigenous identity
  • Opinionated reviews. No bland descriptions and lukewarm recommendations. Our expert writers are passionate about their destinations--they tell it like it is in an engaging and helpful way.
