Puerto Rican Travel Guides.. 3 of 4
Over the course of last winter, I read these travel guides. This is not an inclusive list. They were cheap and newly published. Of the Three, my favorite is…
‘Let’s Go Puerto Rico’
‘Off the Beaten Path Puerto Rico’ was pretty good too. I would buy both again. My trip was planned around the pair.
However, ‘Fodor’s Puerto Rico’ only briefly mentions the Tren Urbano mass transit system in San Juan… one paragraph on page 95. As if it was an after thought. It makes me wonder just how current the rest of it is. I do want to qualify, I’m not finished reading it.
There is one other PR travel guide I would have read, but ran out of time, ‘Lonely Planet Puerto Rico’. It was published in 2008. The Lonely Planet series came highly recommended by a close friend for folks on a budget like me.
Update: I did finish reading the Fodor’s guide while on the last leg of my flight into San Juan. I had the good fortune of meeting a resident of Puerto Rico… she drew issue with several other references (which I did note directly in the book). I plan to verify them before I pass judgement.
