Some reviews of the book

Fascinating read
Fascinating read. It will make you want to grab your backpack and embark on your own adventure. Would recommend to anyone Tristan Harfield (Amazon)
Good book
Really enjoyable book only let down by the atrocious punctuation and a few factual errors. plurals do not have an apostrophe and the mayans are a long gone civilisation! That said, well written travelogue, would buy more of Mr Macklin`s ebooks Shelley2802 (Amazon)
Better than Bryson?!
This has to be the best narrative of travel writing I have read since Bill Bryson. There are laugh out loud moments, as well as sheer shocking ones. A great, easy read. I recommend it highly, especially if you've travelled in the same regions, as it will be a great reminder of some fantastic travel memories. DGG (Amazon)
