Really out of date,
This review is from: Brazil (Lonely Planet Brazil) (Paperback)
We went to Rio using this book and were very disappointed. While the background information in the books is helpful, the book is very out of date, and often inaccurate. In particular:
1) Most of the restaurants recommended that we tried to go to were closed down. Those that we found were not as good as the review suggested.
2) Maps are small, hard to read, and often inaccurate, placing locations on the wrong block, or leaving off crucial information, such as there are buildings blocking routes through neighborhoods. This often caused us to have to backtrack quite a distance to get where we were going.
3) There was not much useful information about Ilhe Grande.
