Insight Guide Belize

(please note this review is based on the 1st edition)
If you are looking for a travel guide that captures the true essence of Belize then Insight Guides Belize is that book. It uses colourful, descriptive and enjoyable language that creates a unique Belizean flavour. The contributing authors have lived in Belize long enough to know exactly what to write. Take for example the section on foods; the author writes that "...many Belizean families would be at a loss without their salad cream, tinned luncheon meat and condensed milk...". In another place the author writes in talking about the night life at the Blue Angels Club in San Ignacio, that "...the scene gets increasingly rough as the night goes on, and locals insisted that the wire grilles were put over the second story Blue Angel's Window because too many people were being thrown through them in drunken brawls...".  Such insight! No wonder the guide is aptly named Insight Guides Belize. For an understanding of Belize and what to expect I highly recommend this travel guide to the would be traveler to Belize. This is not 'Club Med' y'al this is Belize, the book makes it clear.
