Island Library and Reading List
Slickrock specializes in island adventures Belize-style. Because we own the island, we can really invest in our facility which includes seaside cabanas, tons of sport gear, and a huge dining hall which houses our ever-growing library. Hours on the island are spent identifying underwater creatures, or reading up on the Mayans and Belize sea kayaking techniques. This also serves as a reading list while preparing for our trip.
Review of Lonely Planet Belize
Although we have always been partial to the Lonely Planet Belize guidebook since we were featured on the cover of their first edition (2002), still we feel we can state without bias that this is the best of the guidebooks available about Belize. Even though we have been traveling and working in Belize for over 30 years, this book still helps us out enormously when we visit a region of the country we are less familiar with, or when answering questions about Belize we don’t know the answer to. There are many regions of Belize, and this book provides detailed info about each, and also covers the area of nearby Guatemala that contains the huge ruin complex of Tikal. It gives insights into where the crowds are, which restaurants to frequent, all of the ruins and caves, and even nighttime entertainment in each major town. The most recent version was published in late 2016, they will probably come out with a new version soon. We highly recommend this book.
