Eyewitness Travel Guide to Mexico
Mexico is a heady sort of place; it inundates you with sights, sounds, smells, tastes, and tactile sensations. A dry text, no matter how informative, just doesn't do justice to Mexico's allure. DK's Eyewitness Travel Guide series, on the other hand, does. Sure, it provides the necessary data points. The "Travelers' Needs" section contains 168 recommended hotel options and another 168 restaurants--as well as a beautifully illustrated guide to the foods of Mexico. And there are pages of practical information on visas, health precautions, time zones, electricity, taxis, security, banking, communications, and the like. 

But DK's guide provides far more inspirational than a mere collection of data. The two-page glossy color map of Mexico is not just clear and easy to understand, it's beautiful. The hundreds of color photographs throughout the book are exquisite, depicting the sere hilltop archeological site of Monte Albán, fishermen preparing nets on a Yucatán beach, the vibrancy of a fruit market in San Cristóbal de las Casas, the green lushness of the wetlands, the scrub of the Sonora desert, and the intense vegetation of the Tehuantepec rainforests. There are 3-D aerial-view layouts of towns and ancient sites, cutaways and floor plans for churches and pyramids, as well as wonderful explanatory texts for each region, delving into history, traditions, sights, fiestas, foods, music, and activities. DK's is a guide book that is actually a pleasure to use--one that adds excitement to the necessary task of planning your vacation. --Stephanie Gold -

Moon Handbooks: Pacific Mexico 5 Ed: Acapulco, Puerto Vallarta, Oaxac, Guadalajara, and Mazatlan
by Bruce Whipperman
It is the age of specialization, which is a good thing if you're traveling to Pacific Mexico. Let's say you're heading off to Mazatlán or Guadalajara, Oaxaca or Acapulco, you no longer need to lug along every detail on every town, city, and hotel in Mexico. Just the pertinent particulars will do, and that's what Bruce Whipperman delivers in his Lowell Thomas Award-winning Pacific Mexico Handbook. 

Stretching over 1,000 miles along the Pacific coast from Mazatlán in Sinaloa down to Bahias de Huatulco in Oaxaca, the choices of tropical, palm-lined lagoons and soft sandy beaches seem without end yet easily accessible, thanks to Mexico's Highway 200 on the Pacific coast and a plethora of airplane access. Yet not each beach resort town is the same in character and opportunities. One of the great services rendered by Whipperman's handbook, before you ever set foot on Mexican soil, is the concise yet evocative description of the distinguishing personalities of the many towns and cities along the water. Especially useful if you're venturing south for the first time, Whipperman's introductions help you plan your itinerary to suit your mood and style. Of course he backs his narrative up with all the facts one might need, the hotels and restaurants, means of transportation and nightlife, shopping, sports, sights, and beaches. But he fleshes these guidebook details out with his sensitive and scholarly attention to the people, history and culture, the land and sea, the vegetation and the animals to be seen and experienced. All the options are spelled out, from the hedonistic immersion in resort relaxation to a glossary of helpful Spanish if you choose to explore further afield. --Stephanie Gold -

Motorcycle Journeys Through Southern Mexico
by Neal Davis, Lisa Dionne
Neal Davis was bitten by a travel bug early in life and has spent his years seeking a cure all over the world. As an accomplished sailor and pilot, Davis was also able to ensure that his wife and two children were infected as well, and together they shared many adventures on land, sea, and air. In fact, Davis first got his start motorcycling off-pavement when his young family was taken with the sport. Years later, when he had retired from owning a small business, Davis took to the street on an organized motorcycle tour of the Alps--and he quickly saw the appeal of two-wheeled travel. Since then, Davis has ridden in 21 countries in nearly every corner of the globe. Over the years, he has also served in various leadership capacities to introduce other motorcyclists to organized touring in Europe and Mexico. Davis now spends nearly 200 days of every year on the road, living the life we all dream about. Although he has been a long-standing fan of Mexico since the early 70s, he still rode more than 18,000 miles South of the Border in the last year in preparation for this book, most of them on a Kawasaki KLR 650. His favorite street bike, a Honda VFR, currently resides beside his wife's BMW R1100 at their home in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. The Publisher
