They may still be valid, but should not be listed for this book.

A lot of the book was interesting and helpful but you have no way of knowing which parts before you get there.

I then found a Lebanese restaurant in the guide and walked there, only to find that it wasn't open either.

I am an American studying abroad in Buenos Aires and I wanted to advise anyone who is considering buying this book to save their money. I had been using the Time Out guide in the city, which is infinitely better, but I brought this guide on a trip to Colonia and Montevideo because it had much more information. As it turned out, nothing the guide recommended for Montevideo was true or even open. It listed two vegetarian restaurants, one with three locations throughout the city. I spent the better part of a day walking around the city only to find that not a single one of those four was still in existence. I then found a Lebanese restaurant in the guide and walked there, only to find that it wasn't open either. I thought maybe some shopping would improve my mood... but few of the places listed still exist. We couldn't find the reccomended Baar Fun Fun or the Cafe Brasilero. At this point, I tossed the guidebook in the nearest trashcan. At least for Buenos Aires and Uruguay, its much wiser to stick with time out.

Format: Map
The three positive points to this map are that it is sturdy, waterproof, and colourful. For practical use it is difficult to use. You are constantly flipping the pages to find out which section you are looking for, and often the street you are looking for lies exactly in the part they decided to cut-off. I find it is not comprehensive enough, and think it would only be good if you were touring for one day in the touristy places. It's not really a map to get around the entire city with.

Format: Paperback
Anyone considering buying this book should be aware that the publisher and authors have gotten in trouble with the Argentine and Brazilian governments for suggesting that foreigners could cross the border from Argentina to Brazil at Iguazú falls by using false identification (see p. 157). Anyone attempting to do this might well end up in a Brazilian or Argentine jail in an area where smuggling of drugs, guns and people is epidemic. Visitors should always get the appropriate Brazilian visa.
The rest of the book, while not so bad as this, is awkwardly written, though this could partly be an editing problem--in one instance, there is a curious statement that appears to state that the Buenos Aires subway has been demolished (p. 84).

Format: Paperback
The book was written before the peso devaluation and subsequent crisis and is utterly useless unless you need a paperweight. This 3rd Edition is dated March 2002, and all hotel and restaurant pricing is from pre-devaluation. I spent November 2004 in Buenoes Aires and am headed back January 19, 2005. Buy Time Out Buenos Aires instead: Second Edition 2004. It is perfect!

I used this book right after it was published when it was already out of date in some regards. A lot of the book was interesting and helpful but you have no way of knowing which parts before you get there. The issue with the book is that somebody didn't spend enough time doing their homework.

Make sure you get a good guide for Buenos Aires. This city is too big for almost anybody to know in the way most people know their cities. It's also the city of condos, cafes and art. There is something to do and see without end. You can waste time looking for something that's not there, and things change quickly so you need a very recent guide.

The neighborhood maps in the book were helpful but there were also many unhelpful elements in the book. I found it wasn't realistic to use many restaurants suggested as they weren't the best places nor had the best food, but rather tended to be oversold to tourists. A genuine effort would not list tourist traps when there are so many spectacular venues. The book seemed like a form of advertising.

I took the ferry to Montevideo and recommend it. However, this book set me back in terms of wrong information on Montevideo.

I got this as a gift, so I can't say whether the product shipped is the one advertised. My version is the one advertised. It was a fantastic guide book, spot on with restaurant/bar recommendations in Buenos Aires, the hotel we stayed at in San Antonio de Areco, and a cooking class we took outside the city. It even led us to the "Guia T" - the bus guide which was the fastest and cheapest way to see more of the city.

Great neighborhood descriptions - very informative and interesting. Loved this book. Would definitely buy another Lonely Planet guide.

Most or all of these reviews are NOT of the current edition (the one Amazon is selling)! Look at the dates. This book was published in 2011.

They may still be valid, but should not be listed for this book.

The 3 stars reflect nothing, but is here since a rating is required and I have not seen this version.
