cruising guides to central america?

You won''t find a lot. Freya''s and also Calder''s guides are quite dated now. Since you didn''t ask about Panama, you probably know about the Zydlers'' Panama guide. It and a wide selection of other guides on the *West* coast of Central America are all published by Seaworthy; see

You''ll find some useful routing and major port info in Pat & John Rains'' Cruising Ports, Florida to California (e.g. the El Salvador marinas) but they mostly make power boat deliveries, so I''d look at that book before buying. See

Your best single info source is probably the SSCA CD of the last 8 years of SSCA Bulletins, which include a lot of info abut that area, some of it dated but some more recent...and not a lot changes in that region, either. Go to, Store, Pubs and select the CD. $25 as I recall.
