07.22.08 - A really, really excellent guidebook. All the recommended hotels and restaurants were exactly as described. The book was also informative and well-written, with some excellent descriptions of local culture and history. I highly recommend it if anyone is planning a future trip to Guatemala.

06.08.08 - So far, this book seems really helpful. Will update when I get back.

04.29.08 - I'm starting to get excited about the Guatemala trip Dave and I have planned!

I clicked with the author and found this guide to be a good fit for me. Lots of info on outdoor pursuits, village immersion, and the like. Enough high end stuff for people who want that, but not so much it cluttered the book and crowded out the things I was looking for, like good-value deals, social enterprises, and ethical, safe, low impact travel.

I'll update the rating after my trip but this has been much more helpful during trip planning than the Lonely Planet that's out there. I lucked out since a new update of this was just published a few months ago. lots of pictures to show why you would want to go somewhere, and what sounds like solid advice. we will see when we get there!

The best part about this book as with most Moon Handbooks is that when they give a restaurant or hotel/hostel a "moon" you can count on it being awesome. Stayed at several locations and tried several restaurants in this book and loved every one. As another reviewer commented, phone numbers seemed to be off in some cases. I paired this with Rough Guides and word of mouth from other travelers.

Absolutely accurate. Was very helpful when deciding where to stay and where to eat. Great traveling advice. The sidebars added interesting commentary to the travelogue.

Eh. I thought I was requesting the Georges Perec book when I got this from the library. Some interesting short essays about life, grouped together by topic, some good, some not.

All the phone numbers in this book are wrong, not current, or disconnected. I dont know why this is, but I know that I cant call any hotels mentioned in the book. ...more

A decent guidebook but lacking certain key information, most notably prices. I would take a Rough Guide or LP over this.
