Disappointing for Bay Islands 6 mars 2014
Par roxette521 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
It was hard to find a guidebook for the Bay Islands, and unfortunately this one is both outdated and incomplete. There are several important issues we experienced on Roatan that the Lonely Planet book should have prepared us for. If I had known the information below, my trip would have been much more pleasant.

1. Bring US dollars with you! The book mentioned that prices are quoted in USD, and also that there is an ATM in West End. What it fails to mention is that every single vendor and business prefers USD as the form of payment and that the ATM - and most other ATM's don't work properly half the time - they're turned off, out of cash, or don't take MasterCard cards. When they do work, they charge exorbitant fees. I've never paid this much in fees anywhere in the world for taking out cash. Many businesses take credit cards, but they charge a whooping 15% extra for using them! The best thing to do is to bring a wad of US dollars in various denominations with you. It is the cheapest and least frustrating way to pay for everything on the island. Lempiras are worthless, and local residents seem to feel that way as well. Everyone offers a very favorable exchange rate when you use USD (unlike some other countries). I know this book is older, but I seriously doubt this problem has changed much over the years.

2. Airport departure tax is high and using a credit card cost a ton. You have to pay nearly 40 US dollars per person to leave the country. Bring cash for this - using a credit card will mean processing as a cash advance, which is super expensive.

3. Bring a flash light. Roatan has power outages. It also has imperfect roads. To walk home safely after dinner it's best to have a flashlight.

4. Bring a first aid kit with basic medicines. Finding them on the island is hard. We went to a pharmacy, and it was completely out of any topical antiseptic.

Great book for student traveler. 29 novembre 2010
Par Travis - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I was wary about buying this book after reading the negative review. I was also getting nervous about my trip to Honduras, because all the websites have really expensive hotels, more than $100 US. Thank goodness for Lonely Planet because I can now enjoy a trip that I can afford. It's got just what I need, plenty of places to stay, eat and visit, all for much less than online. I guess that the places in Honduras that can afford websites charge an arm and a leg. I'm all about budget travel, and this book is the perfect companion. And it's slim, so it won't take up much valuable backpacking space. In response to the earlier review, as a student on a budget, I'm not too concerned that the history may be inaccurate. I'm going to Honduras to have a good, and inexpensive time. This book has saved me tons of money and let me relax and have a good time. Thanks Lonely Planet.

On the positive side, it's better than nothing. 1 juin 2010
Par J A - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I have just read most of this 2010 guide. I have been to Honduras for 7 days previously, not exploring much on that occasion. Now I am looking to go again soon and see much more of what the country has to offer. This is my first Lonley Planet (LP) guide book although I do subscribe to their travel magazine.

Examples of contradictions:

First of all in the history section we are told "a military coup removed President Zelaya" and yet it is also written that the exile of the President was authorized by the Supreme Court! First, a "coup d'etat" as it was also written in LP, did not take place. Secondly free elections were held within a few months of the event, so it is undisputable that the constitution of Honduras was followed in order to prevent Zeleya from clinging to his position for ever.

About Copan Site: "is certainly overpriced" then a few words later "a day-trip is well worth the price of admission.

Unclear English:

Writing phrases like "hillsides dating from the Postclassic" or "the longest inscription discovered in Mesoamerica." is unhelpful. Replace or explain it please. It looks as if history sections are cut and pasted into the guide when they read like this - clearley not the author's/reader's every-day language.

Overly cynical tone and attitude towards San Pedro Sula:

"Go figure most people leave Honduras' second city as soon as possible." This sort of attitude is not helpful if you ARE staying in San Pedro, since as you admit, "most people do" it's a shame more effort is made of slighting the city than informing the reader what he CAN do. You are supposed to be my guide for the city, to provoke enthusuasm for the traveller on his sometimes tough or lonley travels, not be a moaner.

"Sights & Activities" listed for this city: look at the cathedral and 3 museums.
"There are few museums or urban attractions to make it worth your while."
What about the two waterparks? The market? Going for a walk or jog up Coca-Cola Mountain? I don't know much about San Pedro but the fact I know more than this guide cared to research is very sad indeed.

On the positive note this guide is useful as opposed to having no information at all, but I really didn't like the tone or way of writing (full of rubbish like telling me I will catch up with friends I have met on my travels in Copan). Try another guide if you can find one!

PS Mr lonley Planet Author, did you know if you try to get to Honduras from Peru and several other countries you can't? They won't let you in or even board the plane without a yellow fever immunization certificate. This is a huge deal if you don't know about it, since you can't have it injected and covering you the same day, it has to be done in advance to cover you. If you know this then why is the part that mentions yellow fever vaccinations so so vauge as if you paste it into all your books you produce. It doesn't say it is neccecarry for Honduras. I expect specific information about the place I am visiting.

Limp & lazy 27 février 2011
Par Samuel Dram - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Some Lonely Planet books are better than others. Seems to be that the older ones have had a few years to mature. And let's face it: some countries are more interesting to visit than others. Sometimes, the author is just not feeling it and would rather be doing something else.

I think this edition has all three problems. Regardless, it's not a great guidebook by any measure. It is uninspired, sometimes wrong, and lazy. It will not do much to get you pumped about a visit to Honduras.

But if you're a Lonely Planet reader, what are you going to do? Buy a MOON Guide? Get real.

Let's just hope the next edition is better.

Don't go without it!! 27 juillet 2012
Par run4fun - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I have the lonely planet Spain and Chile books as well, and I wouldn't go without one. The Honduras one was no exception. We relied on it heavily during our travels. To give you an idea, my boyfriend and I went on a three week vacation there and though we knew where we wanted to go before we left (and we sorta had a plan for the order) we didn't even know where we were going to stay our first night there. Our flight landed around noon, took a taxi to the bus station, took a 6 hour bus ride to Copan Ruinas, and then looked for a hostel there. We stayed there for 3 nights and then moved again. Every time we were going to change city, the night before we'd look in this guide to see how to go about getting to our next destination, and every bus ride on the way there we'd look in here to see about what hostel we'd want to try to stay at. This book allowed us to just go with the flow and plan our trip as we went. It even got us into Guatemala without problems. With the use of this book, while on a bus to Guatemala, we realized that the boarder's visa office would be closed by the time we got there (so us Americans wouldn't be able to get through) so we ended up getting off the bus and staying in a beach town a few miles from the boarder and continuing the next day.

If I hear of a good place to stay by word of mouth, great. But if not I'd rather go with a cool hostel recommended in one of the Lonely Planet books. I've stayed in too many bad places to trust my luck without it.

Final note, I'd recommend Honduras over Guatemala. Honduras had less tourists so the locals are much nicer overall (in Guatemala we had to be on our guard) and Honduras has many of the same types of adventures. I'm not sure if there are volcanos in Honduras though.
