Can anyone recommend a detailed road map of the Yucatan peninsula that I could purchase? You can buy a road atlas of all the states in Mexico, city maps or state maps. I bought some nice maps in the Cancun Walmart. They are by a company called Blue Map and the maps are royal blue with big while lettering. They have them for Cancun, Merida , Mayan Riviera, etc. Very detailed and they even show archaelogical zones, dive zones, shopping malls, and other areas of interest.

We do not own a GPS, but have read that Garmin is typically the superior product. However, when I look at the maps they offer, they often appear incomplete or outdated.
The free, user-submitted maps are confusing, as I am frantically researching them and not making much progress. Can somebody please advise on the best GPS unit, ideally with preloaded maps or downloadable maps. Thanks so much. The challenge you may find is that most people who haunt these forums spend a lot of time in Yucatan , and may very well not use GPS-based products to get around. My limited experience with various GPS electronic products has not been positive. I rely almost exclusively on old-fashioned paper maps.
For the most part, roads in Yucatan are limited and point to point. Signage is pretty good. This is the map I use to travel city-to-city: amazon. Once I'm in the city or town I rely on signage to get where I need to go. The one exception is Merida. I purchased a map of Merida when I was down there and pull it out all the time. That's probably the one place a GPS would come in handy. But I also know the city pretty well, so if it takes me the wrong way, I can usually find my way to where I want to go.
If it was me, I'd buy a good map of Yucatan before leaving the Texas , and then buy a map of Merida when you get down there. I'd have them as backup, regardless of what GPS system you get. Yes roads in the Yucatan are basically point to point but if you are going through some small towns you can get lost easily without a GPS, I use the Garmin with Garmin Mexico map In Merida I use the intersection function, imputing say calle 62 y 57 took me to the block my hotel Montejo was located Also you can take your handheld GPS with you on a hike or site seeing in a large city, just put it into Pedestrian mode and you will never get lost I have driven 95, miles in Mexico in the last 4 years and never been lost, love my Garmin Garmin maps are fine for the area and are updated frequently.
Do note that not all Garmin units come with Mexico maps - if the package doesn't explicitly state that it does, keep looking. This topic has been closed to new posts due to inactivity. We hope you'll join the conversation by posting to an open topic or starting a new one.
