Moon Spotlight Compact, focused guidebooks for the no-nonsense traveler.

You know where you’re going, how you’re getting there, and exactly how you want to spend your time. Maybe you’ve been there before and all you need are a few suggestions to round out your itinerary, maybe you’re a first-time traveler just looking for the snorkeling beach of the bunch or the city’s hottest new restaurant with five-star risotto. If you’re short on travel time, taking off on a last-minute getaway, or testing the guidebook (and travel destination) waters, light and easy is a great place to start.

The compact guides listed here focus on the most popular travel destinations and cover much smaller geographic regions than other Moon series. Short and sweet, Moon Spotlight guidebooks work best for those who would rather spend more time exploring a locale with a little guidance than reading about it.
