Books About the Maya

Just Updated! A perennial bestseller in the bookstore, this reader-friendly book is an excellent choice for those who want to learn about the Maya.


This volume, also by Michael Coe, covers Mexico's history up to the time the Spanish arrived, from the Olmecs to the Aztecs. Does not have much information on the Maya, who's range stretches beyond Mexico.

The sacred book of the Mayas. This is the story of the  how the Maya people came to be.

This book will allow you to communicate with the Maya in their own language. Gives an excellent background on how the language formed as well as a phrasebook and Maya/English dictionary. Also tips on how to learn the language "in the field".

Our Favourite Travel Guides - Carrying a good guidebook is like bringing a good friend with you on your trip who knows where all the best places are. We like to carry several to get different views.

Intelligent, well-researched and hip, this book covers our area well. Includes a mini CD with an ebook version of the guide and links to check out.

This guide is updated every year and always points you to the best of the Yucatan including Puerto Morelos. Comes with a free map in the back.

The most popular guide to our area. This edition is hot off the press. Just released in October, it's what the well-informed traveler is carrying this year. We currently have this in stock in the bookstore.

This is the book you must have if you are bringing your RV to Mexico. Teaches you everything you need to know about camping in Mexico, from crossing the border to where to sleep. The new edition adds lots of new places to camp and updated information you need to know. We're even listed in the acknowledgements! We currently have this in stock in the bookstore.

Living, Working, Retiring in Mexico

Freshly updated, this book will help you live in Mexico, either with a similar lifestyle you enjoyed in your home country or a more "Mexican lifestyle". Descriptions of scenic, vibrant places, as well as essential information about the resources and activities, allow you to make an informed decision about selecting Mexico as your ideal location to live or retire.

If you have done any research on moving to Mexico, chances are you have run across the name "Rollybrook". If there is an expert in jumping through the hoops of moving here, it's him. Now he's written a book. This is the mother of all expert guides.

Do not even think about making the move without this book! This will teach you more about Mexico and its unique culture than any other book, and it's a great and fun read too. I've read it dozens of times and I still am entertained and educated by it. Buy it!

The imagery in this book will make you (almost) feel like you are in Mexico even if you are stuck in a Northern snowstorm. The true story of a couple who try to escape the hectic life of LA in San Miguel de Allende

You can't get more of a local read than this! The story of a couple who follow their dreams and build a home in Puerto Morelos.

A passionate travel memoir from a couple who dreamt of building a B&B in Mexico. The author takes you on their journey as they try to build a new life in a new country. Best book I've seen on some of the wacky things that can happen to you here in Mexico as you try to pursue your dreams.

Learn Spanish!

A new approach to learning Spanish. Most of our customers who learned to speak using a book recommend this one.

Our bestselling phrase book. Provides just enough espanol to get along in Mexico. Covers everything from going to a restaurant to dating! Also has a Spanish/English dictionary in the back.

This website is all about Puerto Morelos, a beautiful Mexican fishing village on the ocean, between the resort towns of Playa del Carmen and Cancun, Mexico. Puerto Morelos is unique because it has maintained it's genuine "fishing village" atmosphere. Here you can snorkel, fish, explore jungle and Mayan ruins without being in a crowded resort town. Our beaches are wide, clean and practically deserted. Puerto Morelos features top restaurants serving great food to all budgets. Our shopping is unique and low-pressure, like our bookstore. A unique collection of 20,000 books  in a small Mexican fishing village. It's quirky and cool...kind of like Puerto Morelos. Sign up for our free newsletter on this page to sample the town, and plan your next vacation to Puerto Morelos.
