But we also lead you to new discoveries, turning corners never before turned, helping you learn about the world in a new way – Adventure Guides make that possible.

Product Description
This book offers tons of recommendations for everything from tour operators to restaurants to hotels in every price budget. All are based on first-hand experience from authors who know the Yucatan intimately. Comprehensive background information - history, culture, geography and climate - gives you a solid knowledge of each destination and its people. Regional chapters take you on an introductory tour, with stops at museums, historic sites and local attractions. Places to stay and eat; transportation to, from and around your destination; practical concerns; tourism contacts - it's all here! Detailed regional and town maps feature walking and driving tours. Then come the adventures - fishing, canoeing, hiking, rafting, llama trips and more. Never galloped along a beach on horseback, trekked up a mountain, explored ancient sites? "Adventure Guides" include extensive lists of recommended outfitters, with all contact details - e-mail, website, phone number and location.

I am the author of the thriller/adventure "A Tourist in the Yucatan" and I recently reviewed "Adventures Guide to the Yucatan." In my opinion, this is a "must have" book for the adventure minded traveler! Bruce and June Conord have done an excellent job in putting together the ultimate adventure guide book to the Yucatan. For many travelers, a trip to the Yucatan means mostly sitting on the beach soaking in the sun. The typical tourist only sees a small fraction of what this fascinating section of Mexico has to offer. Inland are ancient Mayan ruins hidden in the jungle and colonial cities that date back to the 1500's. Available activities are diverse from scuba diving on tropical reefs or into cenotes or caves to kayaking, camping, or just getting off the beaten track and meeting the "REAL PEOPLE." This book does a great job of outlining all the possibilities available in a straight forward and easy to read style. The introduction section should be very helpful to the first time traveler and there are lots of maps to help you find your way. (James Brumfield, Amazon Reviewer)

If you are looking for something to do besides just sitting on the beach this is the book for you. I am just back from two weeks in the Yucatan, I bought this book mainly because it was so new. Originally was planning on visiting only Cancun and Cozumel, but thanks to this book I drug myself away from the beach. Went to Chichen Itza, Merida, Uxmal, Lotune, Ect, and was blown away!!!! I am now fascinated buy the ancient Mayan culture and old Mexico. (Sasha Turkus, Amazon reviewer)

Second edition of a highly-recommended guidebook to this fascinating corner of Mexico, a region which the authors describe as "a big hitch-hiking thumb." Their interest and hard work has paid off in both editions. The book is loaded with hotel and transportation info, great maps and interesting art work. Eco travelers will love this guidebook. The Conords provide full details on kayaking, hiking, rappelling, and camping in the region.

Tourism Woes Threaten Retail

THE LAST THING beleaguered high-end U.S. retailers need right now is for another big chunk of their customer base to go AWOL. U.S. shoppers pulled back from luxury purchases in the wake of the Great Recession, leading stores to become more dependent on Chinese, Brazilian, and European tourists to pick up the slack. Now they’re caught in a geopolitical pickle. More international visitors are cutting back on trips to the U.S. because of the perception that the country is becoming inhospitable to foreigners, the travel ban on citizens from six countries, and global headlines about hassles at cus

Where Are All the Tourists?

Henry Goldman and David Biller Foreign tourists may be showing their displeasure with President Trump by planning to take their holiday dollars elsewhere. According to Tourism Economics of Wayne, Pa., the U.S. can expect 4.3 million fewer visitors from abroad in 2017 from a year earlier because of anger and anxiety triggered by Trump, especially over his original ban of travelers from mostly Muslim countries. That translates into the loss of 62,000 jobs and $7.4 billion in revenue, says Tourism Economics, which analyzes data to predict and measure travel activity for clients in government and

A Blow to the Soul

Donald Trump has a heart full of fear. The world terrifies him. It’s not just the terror threat he overstates or his overt dread of facts, science, or democratic processes. No, Trump also apparently fears schoolchildren in sunny American suburbs—immigrants and refugees often left with nothing but the scars of war. We know this because he has prioritized turning the might of the most powerful government in the world against these innocents. Rather than addressing the threats posed by an ill-intentioned Russian government or following up on his tough talk about a rising China, the new president
