Publisher Comments:

Insight Guide Guatemala, Belize & the Yucatan is an essential guide to this colorful region, brought to life with hundreds of evocative photographs. Our inspirational Best of Guatemala, Belize and the Yucatan section highlights the area’s unmissable sights and experiences, while a comprehensive Travel Tips section gives you all the practical information you need to plan your trip, and our selective listings bring you the best hotels and restaurants.

Lavish magazine-style features offer a unique insight into certain aspects of this part of the world, looking at Mayan ruins, Guatemalan textiles and eco-tourism in Belize. A detailed Places section, with full-color maps cross-referenced to the lively narrative, guides you around the entire region, from Lake Atitlán in the Guatemalan Highlands and Belize’s Barrier Reef to Chichén Itzá, one of the greatest Maya cities.
