This book is not horrible, but that's about all I can say. It recommended restaurants that were horrible and misquoted a number of prices. It also didn't cover huge chunks of both Haiti and the Dominican Republic, and its coverage of history and culture were un-enlightening. It's a first edition, so maybe this will be corrected in a few years.
