Written in nontechnical terms for learners who have a basic knowledge of simple Mexican Spanish, the book presents easily understood, practical information for anyone who would like to communicate with the Maya in their native language. In addition to covering the pronunciation and grammar of Maya, Bevington includes invaluable tips on learning indigenous languages "in the field. A Maya-English-Spanish glossary with extensive usage examples and an English-Maya glossary conclude the book. Note: The supplemental audiocasette, Spoken Maya for Travelers and Students, is now available as a free download.

Xcaret is an eco-archeological park that highlights the culture of the Yucatan with fun activities. The park was huge so there was so much to do! It was actually very overwhelming at first, but once we walked around for a bit we figured out what we wanted to do. I personally went on the underground river tour, which was amazing!
We visited an aquarium, butterflies garden, traditional cemetery, cultural reenactments and sea turtle exhibits. We went to lunch at the cafeteria where we picked up the Xcaret passport activity book. This made the day super fun, I actually wish I should have gotten it earlier. It takes you around the park to collected stands. We got 19 stamps of the 24!
It was fun trying to find them around the park. In the evening, we went to a show that described Yucatan history and culture. The clothing, singing, dancing, and reenactment of the Pok de Pok game were amazing! Viewing the show was very worth it! For the rest of the time in Playa de Carmen, we spend our days shopping and enjoying the beach. The beaches are beautiful with lots of places where you can rent chairs and enjoy meals.
