Cruising guides to the caribbean

Hi there,

I'm looking to get some cruising guides for a season of sailing in the caribbean. A quick search on amazon lists dozens though. Which ones are "the good ones"? What do you use?

Seems like Chris Doyle's for the windward and leeward, and Nancy Scott's for the Virgin Islands.

How about the ABC's then though? And am I missing anything else? Not planning on going to the Bahamas or South America. And the initial plan is to just cruise the eastern Carib.

The Chris Doyle (Cruising Guide Publications) ones are the most popular and reprinted every two years. Virgin & Windward were printed for 2013/14, Leeward is currently 2014/15. The Stephen J Pavlidis (Seaworthy Publications) are equivalent but less popular. There are others, including ones by Don Street, but these are the main series.
