• The Best of Mexico's Yucatán Peninsula •

The Yucatán Peninsula truly has it all: gorgeous beaches, ancient Maya ruins, non-stop nightlife, pristine nature reserves, vibrant colonial cities, and more. This app covers the best of the best, written by professional travel writers who know the area inside and out. Every entry has a detailed and original review--no PR shtick or internet scrapes. We don't bother with mediocre sights or tourist traps either; with so many amazing things to see and do in the Yucatán Peninsula, what would be the point? If it's in here, it's good.

This app features:

--Expert coverage of Cancún, Cozumel, Playa del Carmen, Isla Mujeres, Riviera Maya, Tulum, Costa Maya, Mérida, and Yucatán State, plus off the beaten path spots like Isla Holbox and Campeche.

--Detailed reviews of the Yucatán's best beaches, ruins, museums, eco-travel, wildlife areas, nightlife, and more, plus travel tips and regional overviews.

--All listings sortable by region, price and category, including Family Friendly, Sports & Adventure, and Authors' Top Picks.

--Hundreds of photos, maps, and hand-selected web links.

--Simple and easy to use format, with most content available offline. Just download and go.

--Written by Liza Prado and Gary Chandler, award-winning travel writers who have lived, worked and traveled in the region for nearly a decade.

Whether you want to relax by the pool, party 'til dawn, clamber up ancient pyramids, or soak up authentic Mexican culture, the Yucatán Peninsula has it...and Yucatán Peninsula Essentials will help you find it.

(By the way, this app does not include resort or restaurant reviews...yet! Stay tuned for future updates—they're free for life.)
