Overview


Geared toward sophisticated and savvy travelers who generally avoid swarms of tourists, this extraordinary guidebook documents the real Caribbean vacation. Completely revised from its previous edition, it boasts improved maps and more easily navigable information on hotels, restaurants, bars, and beaches, going beyond the t-shirt stalls of Ochos Rios, the casinos in St. Maarten, the all-inclusive resorts of Jamaica, and the cruise ship traffic jams of St. Thomas. Such features as Rum & Reggae's Touristo Scale, Island Friendliness Climate, and the Superlatives section all maintain the creative flair that defines this opinionated, irreverent, funny, and—most of all—informative series.
