    Best Overall Travel Book of Belize

    I have used the Rough Guide series for trips to Europe and the Carribean. All travel books seem to sugercoat some of the "non-worthy" sites it does a better job of showing what to skip and gives an honest account of the hotels.

    Good Guide, but not for NOOKS

    As of now, I am pleased with this guide. I am actually going on a vacation in Belize in late February, which is why I bought the guide. It is a quite difficult to negotiate on the NooK because the Table of Contents is too vague. In hard copy, it would be easier to mark or highlight things you might want to go back to numerous times. The maps are way too tiny on the Nook to bother with also. I really wish I had just ordered it in hard copy.

    I will write a more complete assessment AFTER my trip, since I will then know how accurate the information is that is presented in the book.
