Crusing Guide Bahamas to be purchased in Puerto Rico

Hi,

I am desperatly looking for a shop where I can buy some cruising guides for the Bahamas in Puerto Rico.

I am currently in Martinique, I have already searched several marinas and libraries, but buying english literature in a french environment is like trying to make gold out of charcoal.

Any recommendations or suggestions from your side?

Many thanks
Klaus

There are some Kindle cruising guides. I have just downloaded one, but it is too early to comment.

Yes, heard about them as well, but not kany good things. I really need something with navigational aid, approaches, anchorages etc. I heard that the Pavlidis guides fall short here.

Would appreciate if you could comment on this once you have read your downloadeed one.

Thanks
Klaus

There is a West Marine Store in Fajardo in Puerto Rico. You should be able to order from them and have it delivered to the store if they don't have it in stock. Might be worth a call to the store.

US mail to the US Virgins or Puerto Rico after ordering online. Or use the West advice above - order online have delivered to store for pickup.
