4.0 out of 5 stars good book 27 Mar 2013
By bear
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
i'm happy with this guide book, just went to guatemala for a month and this had enough info for what i needed and enough cultural and historical information as well (that's important). i prefer this book over lonely planet and foot print, but i'm not loyal to any of these... i've found it all depends on the author and the particular book and year E.G. - i might hate the next rough guide for guate, but love the foot print one (as i have in the past). i've found that lonely planet have seriously gone down hill, their name alone is carrying them.

Great book. Took a bit too lonng to arrive as it came by standard delivery. Purchasers should be aware that if you take the one click purchase option the default appears to be the standard delivery. It took over three weeks to arrive

5.0 out of 5 stars Useful Guide 27 Oct 2009
By Abraham Lincoln - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I traveled by myself at the age of 20 to Guatemala during the summer of 2009. This guide greatly assisted me during my travels. For much of my time in Guatemala, I stayed in Quetzaltenango or Xela. Every week I traveled to different areas in the country, only having the information contained in this guide, there were enough details in this guide to allow me to conduct my travels in this fashion. I never once encountered a situation where the guide book was inaccurate.

If any readers are interested in traveling in this fashion I would highly recommend that you learn some spanish, because with any guide, obtaining clarification from the locals is what will be most effective in understanding exactly what the guide books are referencing. For example when I traveled from Xela to the volcano Tajamulco I was actually traveling with a local Guatemalan, if I would not have had this guide or was unable to speak spanish I most definately would have had to go through an adventure travel agency. Although in reality, I did meet other Americans down there that barely spoke any Spanish and were able to successfully travel from Xela to the surrounding areas by simply using guides similar to this one. Let me know if you have any questions...

4.0 out of 5 stars Thank heavens we finally have a serious update..... 28 Feb 2009
By D. Shreve - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was seriously disappointed with recent guide book updates by other travel guide companies about Guatemala. So, it was natural that I would immediately send for the newest one from Rough Guide.

Although I will probably only look at it in depth next year, when my annual Maya travels will again have me in Guatemala, I looked at enough pages to determine that this author actually visited Peten to update accurately about some of my favorite places there and near there.

If you are looking for the best travel guide for Guatemala, this one is currently THE one to buy. The only reason I didn't give the book 5 stars is that, being half Norwegian, I just don't do that sort of thing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of the pack 22 Oct 2009
By Ojala Chapin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have all three of the main travel guides for Guatemala, Rough Guide, MG, and LP, this is by far the best one, with MG second (MG's just a little out of date since it was published 2 years ago). Very detailed information, of the several areas I've traveled to in Guatemala the Rough Guide has been quite accurate and helpful, whenever I travel somewhere new I carry it with me.

By Waffle - Published on Amazon.com

Stayed in Guatemala city and the restaurants were not existant that were listed in the book. The map of Guatemala City was also incorrect with regards to musuem placement. Admission pricing was outdated too. Decent background information on Guatemala though.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Guide Book for Guatemala 31 Dec 2010
By H20-Engineer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My wife and I just got back from Guatemala. In preparation for this trip, I researched all the guidebooks out there on the subject and ultimately chose this one. Our trip was focused on 3 areas, Antigua, Lake Atitlan and Tikal. In all, this guide book was a tremendous resource for each of these areas. There were a number of very helpful tips/ideas that we used or looked into, which added to the enjoyment of our trip. In addition, the sections in the back which go into more detail of the Mayan's is a nice read.
