Format: 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

1.0 out of 5 stars Unreliable, sloppy descriptions 20 May 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have been traveling around the world for a while and this is the worst guide book I have ever used. The maps are inadequate. The information is far from complete. The descriptions seem to be more political propaganda than a picture of Central America. This book tells you what to think instead of letting you know what to expect. It took the joy out of traveling and it's lack of information put my safety at risk.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cental America 5 Aug. 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I found this book adequate for my needs of traveling from country to country in Central America over four months. It was lacking in some detail at points, but I enjoyed its easy to follow format and thought the maps were great. If you're spending just a bit of time in each country this is a great book to consider. If you are going only to one or two countries in the region, consider buying books specific to those countries. The format was easier to follow than lonely planet's central america guide.
