Book Giveaway: DK Eyewitness Travel Caribbean, Puerto Rico, Cancun & the Yucatan

This giveaway is now closed – thanks to all who entered!


I’ve been invited on some wonderful trips in the months to come — including Puerto Rico and the Caribbean island of St. Kitts — and feel like sharing the travel love.

To inspire some romance, fun and exploration in a tropical setting: I’m giving away three sets of three DK Eyewitness Travel’s guides to the Caribbean, Puerto Rico, and Cancun & the Yucatan!

I love DK Eyewitness Travel Guides, and have only rarely taken a trip in the last 10 years without consulting and/or bringing one along.

Ideal for independent travelers who like to get their ducks in a visual row, these books specialize in glossy photos, colorful maps, cutaways and floor plans of major sights and 3D aerial views of city districts. A well-culled selection of hotels, restaurants, stores and entertainment venues, coupled with detailed sections on a location’s specific history, culture and food give me a sense that the book’s writer has actually been to these places.

Like a great blog in book form, Eyewitness Travel Guides inspire me to seek out experiences that I might otherwise miss. 

Here are the three guides I’ll be giving away to three lucky winners:

DK Eyewitness Travel Guide: The Caribbean explores every facet of the Caribbean’s 130 islands, from Harrison’s Caves in Barbados to Nelson’s Dockyard in Antigua, Jamaican rum distilleries to  rainforests on Martinique, and the best beaches of the Dominican Republic. In addition to features on nature reserves, music and cuisine, this guide highlights the best Caribbean islands for history, architecture, hiking, snorkeling, sailing and more.

An example of what you’ll find inside DK Eyewitness Travel Guide: Caribbean

DK Eyewitness Top 10 Guides offer dozens of lists — divided by area, city and region — of the 10 best restaurants, bars, neighborhoods, hotels, local attractions, events, festivals, beaches, nature trails, etc.; there’s even a Top 10 list of things to avoid in each destination. Each of these guides contains a removable pull-out map which tucks into a transparent sleeve in the back and includes transportation maps and 60 great ideas on how to spend the day.

The two Top 10 guides I’m giving away are:

  1. I’m going to the Caribbean this spring, so these guides would be perfect for my trip!

  2. I have been dying to get to Puerto Rico because I have been told there is a margarita bar with a zipline, and a lot of culture.

  3. I LOVE Puerto Rico!

  4. Would love to visit all those places, but right now Cancun is on our minds:) Such a fun giveaway!

    I’d love one to plan a trip to Puerto Rico!

  9. I’d really love to travel to the Caribbean because there are so many islands I have yet to discover! These books could surely help me narrow the choices down 😉
