Formerly part of the legendary 'Travellers' Bible', this new edition of Footprint's guide to Central America has been extensively researched and updated. Taking you along the Ruta Maya, through beautiful colonial cities and sleepy villages, to deserted beaches and lush rainforests, it provides recommendations for all budgets on where to eat, sleep and sample tequila, as well as the low-down on the region's best fiestas and adventure activities.

* Extensive listings for all budgets

* Includes information on how to get there and how to get around plus carefully planned itineraries to help you have the best possible experience whether you're travelling for a week or a month

* The heart of the guide is divided by country and region, giving comprehensive information on Guatemala, Belize, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Panama

* Also covers Yucatan Peninsula and Chiapas

* Each country and region has an overview map which includes 'Don't miss' destinations, local information on how to get around and detailed street maps where relevant

* Detailed listings on where to sleep, eat and play are provided for every destination within each country, enabling you to have an even better travel experience

* Includes key Spanish words and phrases helping you get the most out of your trip

With activities galore, ruins aplenty, year round sunshine and amazing food and drink there is something for everyone and Footprint's Handbook will help you see and experience the real Central America.

More About the Author

Richard Arghiris is a freelance writer, journalist, blogger, and long-term traveller. He has been wandering the highways and unpaved back roads of Central America since 2003, contributing to a range of guidebooks by Footprint, various websites, magazines, and newspapers, including The Independent, The Observer, Perceptive Travel, and Intercontinental Cry. Central America's diversity of remote landscapes, its vivid tropical ecology, its patchwork of indigenous, Latin, and African-descendent cultures - not to mention its swashbuckling sense of drama - are an on-going creative inspiration for Richard. He is particularly drawn to far-flung frontiers where civilisation ends and the wilderness begins. His blog, Unseen Americas, www.unseenamericas.com, features news reports, narrative journalism, and street photography from the sketchy US-Mexico border to the teeming rainforests of Panama.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Footprint Classic 4 Aug 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I fell in love with these guides after years of using Lonely Planet.

They are so easy to get used to and also I found that the places recommended are different than the ones LP recommends and are jam packed with tourists, rendering a last minute reservation next to impossible.
Will buy FP guides again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good value 11 Nov 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I judge this to be the best available guide to the whole of Central America - the alternatives being too preoccupied with people wanting to slum it. The style is similar to that of the South American Handbook, concentrating on information more than glossy pictures.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good all round information. 28 Jan 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Good in all respects but could have been easier to read. The print is small.
It met all our demands and provided good advance details.
