A readable and informative guide

Reviewed on September 03, 2018
Paperback | Verified

This 312-page book - the 7th printed edition of August 2018 - is an interesting and readable (the two are not always found together) guide to attractions of the Caribbean island of Jamaica.

Unlike many guides, this is not a glossy booklet dotted with colourful photographs to make it look superficially attractive, but a (literally) rough guide in terms of comparative paper finishes, but well-designed and presented, with readable text, useful maps, and (well-chosen) photographs only where space allows. The excellent design and layout means that you don’t need unnecessary spot illustrations to break up column after column of small-printed data.

The Contents are
P004: Introduction (Where to go, when to go, what to see, itineraries, etc.)
P020: Basics (travel, transport, accommodation, food & drink, shopping, and other “essential” stuff for visitors)

The Guide:
P045: Kingston & around
P085: The Blue Mountains and the east
P125: Ocho Rios and the north coast
P159: Montego Bay and Cockpit Country
P197: Negril and the west
P231: The south

P254: Contexts (articles on history, environment and culture, etc.)
P297: Language (always be polite!)
P304: Index
