In vivid language and 70 evocative photos, they bring you along as they climb soaring pyramids, swim in the world's longest underwater cave system, visit colonial churches, and savor authentic Maya dishes, recipes included. Leaving hotel/restaurant recommendations to others, this honest, often funny travel-memoir gives insight into the people, culture and places of the Yucatan.

Experience the ancient sites of Chichen Itza, Tulum, Ek Balam, Izamal, Muyil, Merida, Coba, Dzibilchaltun, Ake, Mayapan, Edzna and Oxkintok. The perfect companion for travelers going to the Yucatan, it's an inspiration for everyone who dares to follow a dream of renewal.
