Insight Guide Guatemala, Belize and the Yucatán is a comprehensive, full-colour travel guide to this fascinating region and the legacy of the Maya peoples who once inhabited it. The countries and their people are brought to life with hundreds of evocative photographs. Our Best Of Guatemala, Belize and the Yucatán section highlights the Mayan world's unmissable sights and experiences, while a comprehensive Travel Tips section gives you all the practical information necessary to plan your trip. Our independent listings are selected by local writers to bring you the region's best hotels and restaurants.

Lavish magazine-style features offer a unique insight into contemporary life of this part of Central America, from Guatemelan clothing and eco-tourism in Belize to the Tikal ruins in the Petén jungle and a new feature on nature in the Yucatán.

A detailed Places section, with full-colour maps cross-referenced to the lively narrative written by multiple experts, guides you around the region, from the Yucatán's ancient Mayan city Chichén Itzá and Belize's world-renowned dive sites to Guatemala's Lake Atitlán in a collapsed volcano.
