Going to Costa Rica, Belize, Panama, Mexico, Guatemala, or any of the Latin American countries?
We have a new pocket field guide you can take with you - it covers the herbs, spices, and medicinal plants. Take a look at the inside to see all the interesting, full-color, highly-detailed, scientifically illustrations by Enrique C. Leal. As with almost all our guides, it is printed in both English and Spanish. Each illustration is accompanied by the name of the plant in English, Spanish, the scientific name of the species, and the family.
Rainforest Publications' fold-out pocket field guide to the Herbs, Spices, and Medicinal Plants of Latin America includes 100 herbs and spices ranging from the familiar to the exotic. While many herbs and spices have medicinal uses, this guide is not intended to be used as self-treatment for illnesses.
Spices and herbs played a dramatic role in the development of Western civilization. Spices today are plentiful and are used mostly as flavorings. However, in ancient and medieval times they were rare and precious products, used for medicine, perfume, incense, and flavoring.
Buy our guide and read a little more and enjoy the illustrations and your trip a little more. They pack easy. Our guides are also great reminders of your adventures and last for many years.
