About

Overview

Full color photographs and maps throughout. This region is one of the top destinations for America travelers. That means five-star resorts and fancy restaurants, of course, but so much more as well. Dive in Los Arcos, bird-watch in the Marietas Islands, whale-watch in the local waters (a UNESCO site). The guide covers Guadalajara, Laguna Chapala, Tomatlan, Quemaro, Chamela Bay, Costa Careyes, Cuitzmala, Tecuan, Cihuatlan, Platya Boca de Iguanas, Playa Manzanilla and Barra de Navidad/Melaque. All the hotels and restaurants are profiled in depth, as well as the sites worth seeing, entertainment, activities, and all practical details.
