4.0 out of 5 stars Updated in 2004, January 14, 2005
This review is from: The Rough Guide to Argentina 2 (Rough Guide Travel Guides) (Paperback)
This new edition was published in late 2004, but after having problems obtaining from Amazon(common with new books from British publishers), I ordered from their UK website instead, and paid the extra cost of airmail shipping. (note: the latest editon has the peaks of Fitz Roy on the cover, not the cactus/Jesuit mission image from the previous edition).

As other reviewers state, this is one of the best guides to Argentina. However, I did immediately notice a couple of disappointing flaws:

1. I got this book within a month after publication, yet found that 1/3 to 1/2 of the websites listed were already dead links.

2. It mentions popular US (United, Delta, etc.) and Latin American airlines (Lan Chile, Aereolinas Argentina, etc.) but does not list what are currently the cheapest carriers out of Miami---as Avianca, Lloyd Aero Boliviano, Lacsa, or 202 Taca International.

3. There are some long-standing tour operators serving this region that are not listed here, and their package prices are below those of the companies that ARE listed. If you are a budget traveler from the U.S., check out the lastest info from Arthur Frommers' Budget Travel, available free online by following the "travel" link on msnbc's website.

My Argentine vacation is still a year away, so I can't yet attest to the accuracy of much of the other info. But like other books from the Rough Guides this one is hard to beat for its comprehensive content.
