Top Customer Reviews
After an good overview, this book is divided into sections/areas of Belize. I like this as we only plan on visiting two main areas: Cayo and San Pedro. A section on Tikal in Guatemala is included along with advice on how to get there.
I like that it included many lodging and "things to do" recommendations. It took a little searching to find a chart of what the icons meant, although some (like Fodor's Recommended) were obvious.
The author hangs out on some of the Belize travel forums and is happy to give current advice without hawking his book.
Overall, I can recommend it without hesitation whether you are an armchair traveler or planning your first visit.

This was a "used" purchase for me, but the book is very clean [I used to buy "used" books in college that were really scruffy], It is very detailed and factual. Read morePublished 22 months ago by B. J. in Oregon
Tend to cite the most expensive hotels as the recommendations - easy info to find elsewhere. Not enough off-the-beaten-path gems. Found Lonely Planet to be better.Published 22 months ago by JonRode

we enjoyed reading this book, and was thinking about going there on our own, but reading this book made us decide at our age(70's) not to attempt it.Published on February 3, 2014 by carolyn cockrell
