Interesting and informative,
This review is from: The Rough Guide to Central America: Belize, Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Panama (Rough Guide to Central America on a Budget) (Paperback)
As i am going to Honduras this year i really needed to get some reliable information about where i was going to help my group create a good itinerary and find out abit more about the country. Whilst there are really no good guide books on just Honduras, i found that the Rough Guide to Central America had the largest, and most imformative section on not only Honduras, but all the Central American countries - and all in one book!
I have found the content a good mixture of general travel info for the area, cultural and historical background, and useful information about the practicalities of life.
At first i concentrated rather on the Honduras section, but now that i am planning a gap year i have also read the other sections of this book and have found them equally as helpful.
The only real qualm i have with this book is that it can be a little verbose (wordy!). They could perhaps have given some of the information in a more easily read format (breaking it up into bullet points, for example). Other than that it is laid out sensibly and is easily read though, or just dipped into for what you want - a good buy, and value for money
