What are te best Caribean cruising guides

Hello All,

What are the best cruising guides, in your opinion, for the Caribean?
The southern part is most important for us.
Lets say Puerto Rico to Trinidad Tobago.

Thank you.

Mark

I know that to be true!! Back in the early 80s I came across quite a few of them while living in the Cayman Islands-

We were told Chris Doyle guides (Doyleguides site lobby). We haven't gone yet and just bought the leeward and windward guides.

I like Doyle's too.

I like Street's to read on the history, local custom, etc..

Re: What are te best Caribean cruising guides

Hi, Thanks for the response.

A frend told me that he didn't like the Doyle guides. But last time he used them was 9 years ago, so maybe things have changed. Someone knows about major changes?
I don't know what he didn't like about it, i will ask.
Doyle seems to be the biggest for the Caribbean.

I like the RCC books. Are there RCC kind a like guides for the Caribbean?

I can't find anything from The Santo Domingo. Someone got a link?

Thanks.
