FYI, the new Fodor's Belize 2007, which I researched and wrote, has just been published.

The 347-page guidebook is the first one Fodor's/Random House has done just on Belize. Former editions combined both Guatemala and Belize in one book.

Editorial content aside, I think the layout and design of this guide (and indeed all the new Fodor's guides) is much improved, with a lot of sidebars and breakouts, many, many maps, and even color photos.

It should be in bookstores worldwide shortly.

The only bad thing is that I've already spent most of the money I was paid to write it.
