Still closely remembering my own experiences in Belize, I can definitely attest to the fact that this book is a very complete and useful guide to all that the small country of Belize has to offer. Berman considers activities covering a variety of interests, budgets and ages, which makes the Moon Handbooks Belize a great companion for almost any traveler. You will find in-depth information about nature reserves, national parks, ecotourism, wildlife sanctuaries, and community tourism, as well as Mayan archeological sites, diving, snorkeling, nightlife, and entertainment....The book is well organized using tabs which allow the reader to quickly locate any of the seven regions described in the book. As all Moon Handbooks, the Belize guide also has a useful section with practical information located at the end of the book. The "Background" section provides information about the history and culture of Belize and its people, and the "Essentials" section offers useful information about practical travel matters. -- TAzine, July 2008
