3.0 von 5 Sternen Essential - but unfortunately not perfect 1. August 2007
Von Cetusia
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
To be honest, after I was more than happy with the "Footprint South America" few years ago (in opposite to all the complains I heard from people travelling there with the "Lonely Planet"), it was no question for me which one to choose for the trip to Central America (Guatemala, Belize, Honduras, El Salvador).

My friend liked to have an own book, well, no probs, he choose the "Let's go" cos it was the most actual one available at the time of travel (Spring 2007). So we had the chance two ask to guides for the right way ;-)

In my memories the South American guide impressed me again and again with very acurate informations, unfortunately I wasn't impressend by the Central American edititon, even it is published as well new in every year.

Positive before travelling: the countries are sorted from north to south, that means, I could cut the number of pages by appr. 50% (Mexico and south of Honduras) and this is positive for backpackers, when every gramm counts. (some other books are sorted by alphabet, so you will need to cut the book more often).

But the main point are the information inside: Of course, you can't expect very detailled ones if you combine whole Central America in one book, but what is printed should be as correct as possible and it wasn't. The worst example in my memories that I missed a bus from San Salvador because they printed 0215 instead 1415 (24 hours time are usual in this book).

The maps at the end gives you a good overview, but I missed more detailled ones beside the text.

Prices were printed most time in USD, even all countries (except El Salvador) deal mainly in local currency. If this is more acurate by the time? I don't think so.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Precise, a lot of ground well covered 6. Oktober 2007
Von Dirk
This was the guide for our trip to Mexico, Belize and Guatemala. We have visited Maya ruins of Chichén Itza, Tikal and Palenque, then enjoyed the fine beaches in Riviera Maya. The guidebook was precise, and we are satisfied with all the hotels and hostels we stayed in. Only once did we stay somewhere else, and in our view the hotel turned out to be overpriced and hostile to customers (Hotel Xbalamqué, Cancun).

The transport section was also correct in all cases, which of course is very important when travelling in a foreign country. In Belize we compared our FP to a LP, and while our book showed a possible way to go from Flores to Palenque in one day, this information was not offered by the LP. It turned out there was a way, organized by a local travel agency not hard too find. (We travelled for 7 hours in minibus, boat and again in minibus.)

In the end, we enjoyed our trip with this guide book. There are only a few negative sides. A currency conversion table would be nice (even though these change, but at some borders it is better than nothing). Also, the price of petrol (in US-$) at the time of writing could be given so that rises in oil prices do not lead to tourists believing that taxi and bus drivers rip them off. And while the book states that non-Spanish speakers could at times "become very frustrated and feel helpless", this also applies to those who speak the language. ;-)

5.0 von 5 Sternen Perfect 23. Juli 2004
Von E. D Papetti - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
I drove to Panama with a friend of mine this last summer, using this book as a guide. It was accurate, useful, and led us to many places that we would never have found otherwise. I cannot speak highly enough of it. If I am traveling anywhere else in the future, I am buying a Footprint guide. The maps in the back proved accurate, too, succesfully getting us all the way to Panama. I looked at a Lonely Planet guide to Panama once I was there, and found that it was not nearly as accurate or useful. If you are traveling anywhere in Mexico or Central America, this footprint guide is all you need. Buy it.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A very impressive guide which I strongly recommend. 7. Juni 2003
Von fdoamerica - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
I used this guide during my three weeks in Nicaragua and enjoyed the excellent writing style. His accommodations and restaurants recommendations are up-to-date and reliable. I found his recommendations to always be valid and that says a lot about a guide.
Hutchison's writing is succinct and unencumbered by the superfluous. He gives you a solid mental picture, within a paragraph or two, of what to expect and how you can enjoy it. I also enjoyed his "Further Reading & Cinema" sections that he has with each country.
Because this guide covers all of Central America and Mexico, the history, economic, culture and environment sections are abbreviated and you may wish for more. Thus, if you are going to visit just one country, as I did, you may want to buy only that country's guide. For Nicaragua I also bought "Moon Travel - Nicaragua". (see my review)
The guide could improve it's weak, mediocre maps. Also frustrating, in all Footprint guides, is the use a price guide for accommodations. Instead of just stating the price per room, Footprint gives you a cumbersome group of letters that correspond to the cost of the room. The problem is that you may forget that LL=$... and up. Or that the letter "A" next to a hotel means it costs around $... So you have to find the legion again and figure it out. You would think that as many years as FootPrint has been around, they would have realized that just quoting the cost of the room in dollars is the best way.
Also, there was no mention by Hutchison regarding the rising problems with crime and gangs in Managua (Capital of Nicaragua). In fact he recommends seeing the old Cathedral "at night" and, for the past few years, this is and has been, a dangerous area for violent crime. In fact, when I asked to go to this area in the daytime, even then the taxi driver told me be careful using the words: "peligroso, peligroso". While I was there I talked with the Cathedral's resident shoe shine man and he also told me the area was very dangerous at night, and he leaves every day at 5pm because "me gusto mi vida."
That said, this is a very impressive guide which I strongly recommend for those going to various Central American Countries. Strongly Recommended 4.5 stars

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Most Reliable Guide 13. März 2003
Von Leslie Bary - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This is the most complete and reliable guide for everyone - from budget/alternative to business travelers. The information given is useful and accurate, even for the most remote areas. I have spent a lot of time in Mexico, Central and South America over the past 25 years and the Footprint guidebooks have always turned out to b e far more useful than any others.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Information overload 22. April 2003
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
This book is great for those travellers in the mid to upper price range (those tour and hotel ads every few pages can get annoying though). If youre looking for organised tours and comfortable travel then I would recommend this book. If your after a travel experience on a tight budget, then I would suggest another book. It has great background information on everything you could possibly want to know, but most times you have to sift through pages and pages just to get to the point.
Overall, this is a thorough and well researched book and accomodation guide. But not for the budget backpacker.

5.0 von 5 Sternen As always - Footprint Guides are the best! 26. Mai 2007
Von Brianne J. Nelson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
I love Footprint! Since I began traveling I've used these books. Everyone has their opinion, but I trust only these. I'm moving to Mexico in a few months and this is the only guide I'm bringing with me. Very detailed, readable, with good maps and contact info.
