A photographic guide that is a great companion for sightseeing and for getting excited about your trip beforehand. Strong on the cultural and historical information, but weaker than some on practical help and listings.
Weaker on practical and logistical information than the Rough Guide, and slightly bulkier, but being packed full of colour photographs accompanied by detailed cultural and historical information makes this is a great companion for the sightseer.
This guide is much slimmer, with far less logistical information than the more practical equivalents, but the glorious colour photographs and cutaways and floor plans of the major sights, ensure that it is just the ticket for getting you excited about your trip and for taking on your excursions.
A popular, colourful guide with detailed historical and cultural information illustrated by plenty of colour photographs. Less useful for practical and logistical informtaion, and we have found it looks a little more dated than the Eyewitness equivalent.
A practical guide for the traveller on a budget with useful hotel listings, details on travel logistics and 40 pages on the Galapagos Islands. However, the cultural and historical information is weaker.
This new, practical guide provides an overview of the country. Six geographically disparate regions are covered in detail with recommended sights, hotels, restaurants, and travel tips. The maps are very basic.
Although it includes less historical and cultural information than the Footprint equivalent, this guide includes great recommendations for hotels and restaurants and a good section on Colombian wildlife.
