Product Description

About the Author

Claire has had an attachment to all things Latin ever since she backpacked around South America five years ago. Being bitten by a piranha in Bolivia and undergoing a brain scan following a sand boarding accident in Peru did not dissuade her from further adventures. She worked as a researcher with animals in the Peruvian jungle, but a close shave with a tropical disease reluctantly sent her back to the UK. Unable to resist the attractions of the continent, she returned to work for FootPrint as a contributor in Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador and Cuba, attempting to learn salsa along the way. A former journalist, Claire lived in Guatemala sticking her nose into the life and times of this Central American nation.

I usually have one or two gripes with a travel guide, however, Footprint, on this occasion, has left me with absolutely nothing to moan about. The book is wonderfully written with an obvious fondness and respect for the country and its people. Not only that but it directed me to some wonderful places to sleep and eat and drink as well as places that were not covered by other guidebooks. A true pleasure and a rare experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars best travel guide for Guatemala 19 Dec. 2004
By M. Moore - Published on
Format: Paperback
We lived in Guatemala City for 2 years and found most of the other guidebooks for Guatemala spoke of really interesting things the average city dweller couldn't get to on long weekends out from Guatemala City (such as Alta Verapaz). Footprints is chock full of interesting things to do within a four hour drive of Guatemala City which made it perfect for us. We found Footrints far superior to Let's Go and Lonely Planet.
