This guide takes you to places not covered in competing guides. Take to the mountain trails, swim in hidden cenotes, watch the sun rise on a beach near the ancient Maya port of Polé where the authors celebrated the dawn of the new millennium). Visit Bohemian Playa del Carmen, or history-rich Cozumel, where the Spanish first set foot on the North American continent.

This travel guide is aimed at the active traveler in this part of the world. Not only does it cover the basics - customs, immigration, how to get around, when to go, where to stay and eat - but it also gives extensive background on the region's history, from mystical Mayan civilizations to Spanish "discovery" to modern cultures and the American influence. It looks at the plant and animal life you will encounter, as well as offering practical travel tips and pointers on the language. But adventures are the main thrust of this book, and the authors tell of anything and everything there is to do on foot (hiking, walking, trekking and sightseeing), on wheels (4WD trips, bicycle rides, driving excursions), in the air (hot-air balloon rides, flightseeing), on or below the water (windsurfing, fishing, waterskiing, scuba diving, snorkeling), and on horseback (group activities and individual itineraries). Cultural sites and eco-tours offer adventures for the mind.
