Good coverage of everything on Riviera Maya
on 17 February 2013
I wanted this book for planning a trip to the Riviera Maya - going down the coastline south of Cancun and so far it seems to be really helpful. I always go for the Lonely Planet books and so far have not been disappointed. This guide gives you info on accommodation, how to travel between places, what to look out for, what to avoid, restaurants and places to see. We have booked 2 out of 3 hotels that were recommended in this guide. We initially struggled with choosing accommodation in Isla Mujeres as the places recommended had differing views with Trip Advisor but would advise looking at the B&B options on Trip Advisor too as there are some really cute places that seem to offer character at cheap prices too. The guide also has some beautiful pictures at the start to get you inspired & excited about the destinations, as well as background info on dishes to try, and the culture/history which I always like to read too.
