If you want a chronological synopsis on those conquistadors and archaeologists who discovered Mayan ruins, this book is for you. It talks more about the process of discovering the ruins and the challenges encountered, instead of discussing the actual Mayans and the ruins themselves. It's small and can be easily carried on the go, but just make sure if the topic is of interest to you.

A superb and readable introduction not to the Maya and the their civilization, but to European discovery of the Maya and the slow evolution of how outsiders came to understand them. An understanding of Mayan civilization comes during the telling of that story. The material is deftly organized and expressed. The book is richly illustrated.
