What’s New in this Edition:
These completely redesigned guides are for people who have booked their travel and accommodation and are looking for the next step: inspiration and information. The all-new structure is simple to use and matches how our readers now travel and use travel content:
Discover—find out what the destination offers and then plan your dream trip
Experience—see and do the things you love
Need to Know—sort the practical stuff: get ready, get around, stay safe
Welcome: A letter from the publisher giving a real flavor of what is special about the Caribbean and how the guide will help you discover it.
Reasons to Love: Two spreads of gorgeous photography and inspiring text that capture the essence of a destination and all its possibilities: not just the major attractions but its sights, sounds, and experiences, inviting you to delve further into the guide.
Whole Area Map: A double-page map of the entire area covered by the guide, with color-coding in a contemporary palate dividing the destination into manageable chunks for easy orientation on the ground, and to direct you to the corresponding chapter.
Getting to Know: A handy snapshot of each area’s ambience and highlights, enabling you to decide easily where you want to spend your time—we show which areas are best for discovering the culture, nightlife, and markets, and where to find the top sights.
Itineraries: Easy-to-follow walks and drives, from five hours to two weeks, which take you through different areas of the destination, linking the best sights and experiences in a relaxed itinerary to fit your schedule, with food and drink stops en route.
Themes: This is the core of the Discover section: 10-12 beautiful spreads designed to get the traveler excited about their trip and, crucially, to decide that this is the guide for them. The themes cover a mouthwatering array of experiences, serving up inspiration and ideas to make this trip your own: Art, Architecture, History, Politics, Scandals, and Families—imagine yourself there!
