Customer Reviews

As usual for every Lonely Planet guide, a very useful and easy to read book.
Guto
Maps are very clunky and difficult to use, though I suspect this is largely due to limitations of the Kindle interface.

And after cross checking and supplementing plans with TripAdvisor, that's all you really need for a great trip.

I sat down and looked at 4 other options for Books on visiting Argentina. This one is great for those planning to road trip and visit other smaller cities. You can investigate all the smaller cities and look at other places to eat/sleep and visit. Pictures and recommended excursions are also indicated here. If you are traveling on tours or on a highend budget, then this book may not suit you. DK Eyewitness book may be better for those on tours, but both have great pictures and highlights. A map in the back on Buenos Aires is included.. almost a freebie! I would recommend this to anyone 18-50, who plans on freelance, unguided travel through Argentina. I cannot complain much about this book, other than the pages are really thin so be gentle with those book.

I must say that this travel guide was incredibly helpful for my first trip to Argentina. The guide includes a map, helpful hints to plan your trip( which helped me maximize funds), great cultural background, and a survival guide to Argentina. Also, the 'do not miss' sections were incredibly valuable. I found other travelers who stayed for a longer period of time than I did, hadn't experienced nearly half of the do not miss sections I visited after reading this guide. Unfortunately, I was disappointed navigating through contents using the kindle edition, so within an hour of struggling with the kindle links, I had to order the paperback version. With that said, this is an incredible guide. I was lucky to travel with my husband, so we were able to read information at the same time. He just had to struggle with the kindle while I read the paperback. Hehe.

I have been buying lonely planet guides in paperback since then. I highly recommend the following LP guides:Ireland, Boston, Galapagos, Montreal, and Alaska.

So... you probably purchase Lonely Planets because in the past these travel books provide information about off-the-beaten-path trips and things to do. This book absolutely does not deliver what I expect from Lonely Planet. You can only find very basic information about towns in Argentina, tour operators, restaurants, and accommodation. NOTHING ELSE. Not even basic information about various treks - you need to purchase the LP Trekking in Patagonian Andes to find that. For my purposes (backpacking in Patagonia, traveling between Argentina and Chile), I would have been better served by purchasing the LP South America on a Shoestring (has nearly the same information as LP Argentina, with info on other countries) and LP Trekking in Patagonian Andes books.

I usually like lonely planet guides but will think twice before ever buying one electronically again. The index is terrible and it's very difficult to find the sections you are looking for.

Not optimized for kindle or iBooks. Terrible. And the info is not very good either. Get the printed edition instead ( same contents, of course, but at least you can find the sections quickly).

This is not the real deal. There is no index, so getting to parts you want to read is cumbersome. Interactivity with maps is poor. If you're serious about travel, unfortunately, buy the book, not this kindle edition. It may save space, but it is woefully lacking.

Lonely Planet is my go to for travel guide books, and while I accept that no guide can be perfect, I felt that this Argentina one did not live up to LP's normally high standards.

The coverage of Buenos Aires, a main destination in Argentina, I found to be particularly lacking. Restaurant recommendations were solid, but nightlife was very off. Other LP books include great walking tours of major cities - nothing like that was included in this book.

I also traveled to Bariloche during my time in Argentina. Here the guide book was very misleading. I was expecting the coverage of this area to be less, considering this is not a huge tourist destination like Patagonia, but the reviews of certain towns in the region really put me off course. Bariloche, for example, was not described as a tourist hub with hotels and cabanas lining the main street for miles. Had I known this, I wouldn't have booked a place weeks ahead outside of town. Villa Traful is described as small and quaint, but nowhere does it mention that there is only one restaurant in town open for dinner - we were expecting the restaurant that LP recommended to be open, but it was more of a snack/tea rather than a full meal place.

I can't speak for coverage on the other areas, but for Buenos Aires and Bariloche, I would recommend looking somewhere else.
