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.
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.
