GuidesThe Paper Kind For your travels around the Yucatán Peninsula, you will want to have a general guide that has more detailed listings of hotels and restaurants than it is possible to give in this volume. Though the guides listed below are recommended, they are far from being the only ones available. Check at your bookstore for others. A good general guide, and an old favorite, is Fodor's Mexico (Fodor's Travel Publications, New York and London). It has information on deluxe to modest hotels (although it does not list them all), restaurants, sights, and so forth.
It is often possible to locate a guide, make arrangements for a trip, and leave immediately. If time permits, however, try to make arrangements the day before, especially if it is going to be a long trip. In the "Getting There" section for a site, if the heading Guide is included, it means you must have one even to reach the site in question. These sites are found in Sections 2, 3, and 5 of this book. The name of the guide recommended for that site is given, as well as where you can find him. More details are provided at the end of "General Information" for that section, under Guides.

They do not show all the structures at the sites. For some ruins that you can reach on your own, a local guide can be of assistance in visiting the site itself, especially if you do not have a site plan. Examples are Muyil and Chicanná. Often the caretaker or one of his children will offer to show you' around, and this will save some time.
