The pre-Hispanic architecture of the Yucatan Peninsula is among the most remarkable in the world, and this book should be in the hands of everyone who intends to visit Mayan ruins such as Chichen Itza, Tulum, or Uxmal. Kelly personally visited nearly every one of the 99 sites and museums described in the guide. She knows what a tourist wants to know. Each site is rated by importance in a four-star system. Site descriptions contain a detailed summary of the ruins, recent history of the site, and travel directions. Area road maps and site plans where available complete the package. The general information about each area includes the availability of accommodations and restaurants, car rentals and gas stations. For archaeologists and fellow travellers on vacation south of the border, this is a guide to 91 sites and 8 museums on the Yucatan Peninsula, many of them not in mainstream guides. Includes many monochrome photographs, instructions for how to get there, descriptions of the site, brief histories of the archaeological study, and ratings of the interest value
