"Belize 101", that is the title for my review of the Belize Handbook. If
you've asked yourself, "Where do I begin?", then let me suggest you
begin with this book. Belize Handbook provides essential, concise,
practical information and advice about traveling to Belize including
background information and activities. There is no fluff or unnecessary
jibber to boost the page count. The information is adequate to plan your
Belize visit and enough activities are covered for you to pick one.
There are plenty of pictures, maps, and illustrations to give you a
glimpse of what to expect, though, I wish they had included more colour
pictures. The authors and publishers are experienced in writing travel
guides and they have brought that experience to Belize Handbook 6 ED. I
highly recommend this book for anyone planning or even just thinking
about taking a trip to Belize.

ecotourist will want to read the chapters on the flora and fauna, and
