Overview

Mexico's Yucatan peninsula offers a spectrum of attractions: dazzling tropical beaches in Cancun and along the Caribbean coast; luxuriant coral reefs; charming colonial cities like Merida and Campeche; the world-famous ancient Mayan cities of Uxmal, Palenque and Chicen Itza. Cadogan's guide covers these celebrated sights in full, but also goes deeper to out-of-the-way hotels with miles of empty beach, to ruins still half-buried in the forest, into the quirky way of life of sleepy country towns and Mayan villages, and on adventure trips into jungle reserves. It gives you all you need to know - whether you want to enjoy the local culture or just mellow out in a hammock by a palm-shaded beach.This guide includes practical travel advice; 400 carefully selected places to stay; over 600 restaurants, bars & cafes; details of newly excavated Mayan sites; 44 maps & site plans; stunning color photography; essential information on diving, snorkeling and watersports. (5 1/2 x 8 1/2, 540 pages, color photos, maps, illustrations)
