New Edition of Rough Guide to Belize

New Edition of Rough Guide to Belize - 07/12/01 05:38 PM

My old comrade-in-arms Peter Eltringham tells me the new 2nd edition of the Rough Guide to Belize is hot off the presses. In fact, I just got a copy Peter mailed me this morning -- not exactly sure when the book will be in bookstores and on, but should be soon.

The new edition has a blue cover and has a photo of the Blue Hole on the front. It has coverage of Tikal and the Bay Islands of Honduras as well as Belize.

Peter first came to Belize years ago with the Brit Air Force and has spent a great deal of time in the country since, probably more than all the rest of us Belize guidebook scribblers combined. He has done a number of Rough Guides besides the Belize edition.

His books are all thoroughly researched, and I can highly recommend it.

I want to thank you for all your input on the board. You seem to tell it like it is and don't sugar coat things. I printed out your AC guide and have been making notes on it.
I had a hard time finding a book that devoted much time to AC. Now, thanks to you and this message board, I have one.
Will be there 7/25 - 8/7. If you are around, I'll buy you a drink!
Thanks, Erika

Lan, thanks for the heads up. Sounds like a nice "supplement" to your Magazine! I'm looking forward to receiving my first issue which I requested this week.

News Flash - Amazon will let you pre-order this guide which will be available September 2001. [Linked Image]
