Book Description

Full color photographs and maps throughout. This region is one of the top destinations for America travelers. That means five-star resorts and fancy restaurants, of course, but so much more as well. Dive in Los Arcos, bird-watch in the Marietas Islands, whale-watch in the local waters (a UNESCO site). The guide covers Guadalajara, Laguna Chapala, Tomatlan, Quemaro, Chamela Bay, Costa Careyes, Cuitzmala, Tecuan, Cihuatlan, Platya Boca de Iguanas, Playa Manzanilla and Barra de Navidad/Melaque. All the hotels and restaurants are profiled in depth, as well as the sites worth seeing, entertainment, activities, and all practical details.

Editorial Reviews


As portable as they are helpful, and heavily illustrated in color as well, the volumes in this series remain very reliable in making certain that adventure is a major component of your trip. --Booklist

Packed with information that other series rarely cover. --Library Journal

A great new resource. --Travel + Leisure

About the Author

Vivien Lougheed started wandering at age nine, when she got her first bicycle. At 16, she discovered Greyhound, and took a trip from Winnipeg to Jasper, the farthest point she could afford at the time. That first view of the Rockies stuck with her, and hiking became a passion, mountains a major destination. She moved to Prince George so she could be closer to the Rockies. In the early 80s she started to see the world; China, the Mediterranean, Central America, Africa and the Himalayas of Tibet, Nepal and Pakistan. In 1986 her first book, Central America by Chickenbus, was published. This was followed by a regular column for the Prince George Citizen. Writing and travel became a blend. Vivien started writing for magazines, "Chickenbus" went into its third edition and she wrote the Kluane National Park Hiking Guide, now in its second edition. A trip through the Chang Tang, a prohibited area of Tibet, led to Forbidden Mountains, her only story book. Hikes in the fabled Nahanni area of Canada's North West Territories resulted in her co-authoring Tungsten John, with her husband. Presently, maps are forbidden - when Vivien sees one she is off again. She now has writing deadlines to meet, deadlines that can't be completed on the road.

1.0 out of 5 stars Useless as a actual guide February 18, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I usually buy a travel guide prior to traveling, but got too busy with work to do so and tried to download a book instead. The choices were VERY limited, so I downloaded the two books that looked "promising". They were both absolutely useless to me with no map available with most info similar/less than what you could find by hopping online. Do yourself a favor and get a real guide ahead of time!
