I found this book to be very helpful and insightful. It was honest and didnt try to sell me on everything in Belize but gave me the real opinions of the writers. Thanks!

Disenchanted With Lonely Planet Jan. 2 2011
By Bill - Published on
Format: Paperback
Just back this morning from a 4 day first time trip to Belize.
I have used the Lonely Planet guides for other countries so when I was planning a trip to Belize from Guatemala City, I tried to find another guide. I was getting tired of misinformation, incomplete maps, and snarky comments of the authors. I didn't find anything, so I ended up with the LP guide again. Most things were helpful, but others were misleading. For example, I really enjoy carved wooden pieces so I followed the LP's advice to visit the Hattieville Prison gift shop. In the book it talks about the high quality items for sale as well as the great variety of pieces carved by the inmates and sold in the shop. There were only about 10 items on display, they were poorly crafted and overpriced. I feel like I wasted a whole morning of my short trip on a wild goose chase.

Some of the maps were incomplete and it's frustrating when you're trying to find something and all you get is a little arrow at the edge of a map with a distance notation. Come on! How hard would it be to add a few more map pages? Cut some of those little information boxes out. They're a waste of space anyway. I wish Fodor's was available here. Next time I'm back in the states, I'm grabbing a copy.

Hopelessly out of Date Aug. 14 2011
By Birddogthecat - Published on

Hopelessly out of Date - Do yourself a favor and skip this travel guide - jump straight to the Rough Guide to Belize The Rough Guide to Belize 5th (fifth) edition Text Only. We just returned from a month in Belize (July & August 2011) and the Lonely Planet Guide is a waste of time. And, is not time for Lonely Planet to provide a truly useful Index? We all know that Lonely Planet's Index has been and remains quixotic. If you want to investigate a particular site, hotel, shop, or restaurant, you must first already know what district in which to find what you are looking for. Well, if it your first time to Belize, how are you supposed to know this information? Yes, LP does provide maps to help you sort all this out, by why do we have to bother? Rough Guide is a much more intuitive and thus highly user-friendly. While we are on the subject of maps, the LP maps contained within the Belize guide are just barely useful. Why do we have to buy an additional LP map kit?

I have been a great fan of Lonely Planet and have bought dozens of their guides over the years. When there were very few choices of useful guides, LP was the way to go. But, now the choice is clearly the Rough Guide series.

The information in this book is out dated and should not be on the market...there is a new one coming out that you should wait and purchase.

the worst Aug. 7 2010
By frustrated - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This guide is the worst e-guide I have ever seen. There are no page numbers. The index doesn't give locations where you can find the topic and index titles ARE NOT interactive. How are you supposed to find the items listed? The Rough guide is much better. You can follow along the road you are traveling--much like the AAA triptychs plus many of the accommodations and points of interest are interactive. Rough is best.
Outdated travel guide that is no longer useful. Aug. 17 2013

Maybe it was my mistake but I did not realize this used book was 8 years old. Many of the restaurants and hotels and other things advertised no longer exist. BUt otherwise I love the Lonely Planet travel guides
