4.0 out of 5 stars Enormous guide to ALMOST all the Caribbean 7 Oct. 2013
By Jon L. Albee - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a fantastic, comprehensive guide. There's just one problem: It excludes Cuba, Haiti and The Bahamas.

Everywhere else is exhaustively presented. Each location includes recommended lodging, dining, shopping, exploring and outing introduced by brief historical and cultural descriptions. Maps are good. Practical information is complete. Recommendations are made with an insider's insight called "Word of Mouth," and each listing includes a "pro & con" section that gives you a well-rounded review. The book has some special features that help you drill down into its vast vault of information. The "Island Finder" is a really cool feature that does exactly what it sounds like. It matches your interest and budget with location. Too bad there's no history or culture identifier in this tool. There's a lot of information for wedding planners as well, which is a feature not found in other guides.

Photography is all in color, and there are many sidebars, labeled "Close Up," inserted into the text to present topics of particular interest. Some of those topics include, "Where does rum come from?" and "Famous Pirates."

I took one star off for excluding Cuba and The Bahamas. Lonely Planet includes all the islands included here PLUS Cuba and the Bahamas, and is a better book, but it's older. If you're not going to Cuba or the Bahamas and you want the most up to date information, this is your book.

2.0 out of 5 stars No substitute for the printed book 30 Dec. 2013
By Tony - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
For a recent Caribbean holiday, I mulled the purchase of the Fodors Caribbean book and then looked at the Kindle edition. The book is a massive tome with very comprehensive articles on all the islands. I thought that by purchasing the Kindle edition, I would get all that information in a much more convenient travel package for my iPad. Bad decision.
The digital edition is very poorly organized and for almost every reading session I found that I constantly had to make trips back to the main index to switch from one topic on a particular town or island to another. For example, you want to find hotels or restaurants near a particular beach - it is practically impossible to do. You want to see a map of an island to look at a particular town? - back to the main index. All of these things are easily accomplished with a book as flipping back and forth between sections is easy.
In spite of the weight, I would strongly recommend that the serious traveler buy the print edition. You will appreciate the well-thought-out organization that comes with years of producing printed travel guides.

5.0 out of 5 stars works good for us 25 Jan. 2014
By Norman S. Stickney III - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
everything seems laid out good. the printing has a big gutter? ( the space in the binding part i think) so it is easier to look at than other books

Handy tips for the entire Caribbean. I would have given it five stars, but some places we visited weren't in the book.
