Excellent book to take on holiday I used it for a trip to St Lucia Lots of information Not to big so easily packed.
Very little information on what to do or see A bit pointless actually Thank heaven I only paid for the Kindle version.
I got this right before I went to Barbados in late September The book seemed to be fairly up to date The book was small and compact, convenient for traveling, and easy to read One negative is the lack of photos and visual aids in the book There are a lot of helpful and colorful pamphlets and brochures for free once you arrive at Barbados airport We ended up using the travel office at our resort hotel to get information and purchase tickets for excursions I do want to pass along these free pamphlets and brochures to the professional travel guide companies though Free internet sites with travelers opinions are informative for getting up to date frank feedback, especially for rare destinations, such as Barbados Of course, the points of views may be swayed and tend to be a place for people to vent about bad experiences This book is not too pricey, so I did not expect too much Unlike Planet Lonely and other competitors, I believe that Fodor s intention for the In Focus series to be starter travel guides to help beginners learn a few basic things about the destination Let me put it this way, it s better than nothing if you are a planner with spontaneity not being your strong suit Have fun PS By the way, I did my first all inclusive vacation at Barbados, which reduced the stress about having to find a place to eat and things to do every day Of course, we wanted to get away from the resort hotel sometimes, so the book was one way to spark our interest to get information on particular excursions.
Not helpful at all If it wasn t such a pain to return,I would have.
A perfectly reasonable travel guide to a holiday in Barbados or St Lucia Plenty of colour photos, hotel reviews, attractions, places to eat etc Yes, the info is online as well, but if you re going to Barbados, you can afford a few pounds for this book, easier to access and reliable than the internet.
