Fairly straight basic, mainly B and W but full
of sound up to date information. Not so colourfull
as some but nonetheless very usefull.
Good promp service from supplier and good price.
(Do shop around)
For the northern part it was correct, although a bit sparse on background information about the different cities. But it really went downhill when we went to ciudad del carmen. Near this place, in laguna de terminos you could kayak your way through mangroves and spot turtles etc. And it even said so on the overview map on page 3. But first of all the city isn't as charming as described, everybody asked us what we were doing there (because there was nothing to do or see). The tourist office only spoke spanish and didn't know a thing about the kayak thing. So we went to puerto real, a very small place (why it made the main map I dont know). Same thing there, nobody knew about kayaking. Because they want to help we were sent all over town and still got nowhere.
Yes you probably can kayak here, of you are one of those lucky tourist who visits countries with his own 4 meter long and 1 meter wide kayak then you can go here, otherwise don't bother. Relying on the LP costed us 2 days of our holiday and a very large detour.
Near calakmul we understood how some of the information was gathered for this edition, by asking at hotels and not visiting the sites themselves. In this hotel we checked the Moon-guide, it was very helpfull for the rest of our trip. Because here it told us about mahahual which is a very nice snorkleplace in mexico near the belizean border. It was very very sparsely covered in our edition.Read more ›
Other than that is was generally quite useful. It could do with a update even though it is dated 2010.

Very informative book. Would be nice to have more pictures but I know Lonely Planet guides are really good with depth of information so this doesn't matter too much. Read morePublished on 1 May 2011 by Jt
