I hope to use this guide to get me to Belize and try out the local delights! But primarily for snorkelling in those amazing waters!

In addition, the formatting of the kindle edition looks rather unprofessional, imo.
Finally, but most important -- I'm very disappointed in Lonely Planet's recent trend of omitting the Cultural/Etiquette sections of their books (both kindle and print). It seems in the most recent editions (the ones that use the cover as the table of contents, ahem) that they are further cutting costs by catering solely to the "ugly American" audiences who are uninterested in being respectful to local cultures.
It's a pity that now even if one wants to interact with local people "off the tourist track", i.e. beyond objects of photography, there is simply no information in these books of how to do so in a culturally respectful manner.
I was a devout Lonely Planet customer but am slowly switching to the Moon series guides as this LP trend takes hold.
So for us, its a disappointment. Its almost as if the authors haven't actually experienced the places. So now we are going shopping for another guide book, and we will be a bit more circumspect in our rush to Lonely Planet tour books from now on.
But hey, if you are planning a trip to Costa Rica, the Lonely Planet guide for that country is perfect.
