He has visited more than 80 countries and all seven continents, but few places have stolen his heart like Argentina. Highlights include riding Juan Perón's coffin through the streets of Buenos Aires during his 2006 reburial, and wearing a dab of perfume from the last bottle of fragrance Evita used before her death to a dinner party.

I'd love to see a review of the Frommer's Argentina book which is not via Chicago. Is there a mandatory stop over on the way? When will amazon post reviews of this book on argentina?

Helpful Guide Nov. 1 2007
By Jan L. Deur - Published on
Format: Paperback
We used this guide primarily for Mendoza and for Buenos Aires, and I found it very helpful. There were a lot of useful tidbits on local culture and customs (such as the water bottle shrines along the highway), and the reviews of places to stay and dine and explore were up to date and relevant. My only complaint was that the number of restaurants reviewed in Buenos Aires was quite limited...I would have preferred to have had more establishments reviewed there. I understand the problem...there are SO MANY restuarants there! But, it would be nice to have more of them reviewed...sometimes we heard from others about possible places to eat, but could find no review. Other than that, however, the book was great.

A disappointment Dec 7 2008
By M. L Russell - Published on
Format: Paperback
I have great respect for much of Frommer's work but this book was a disappointment. I had found a terrific place to stay through the internet and was looking for more information about the city, its history, and the culture. I find that once restaurants have made the guide books, they often fail to live up to the hype. Consulting "local knowledge" seems to be the best way to find restaurants and entertainment. Even the maps were sometimes misleading.

Sorry I can't suggest another guide. I'm a big fan of the Eyewitness Guides but there doesn't seem to be one for Buenos Aires.

classic frommer guide Nov. 4 2007
By P. J. Soricone - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I sure like this edition overall, though it had some shortcomings for my specific trip's purposes. Classic Frommers style -- concise, tight, useful info. Good complement to my other guides -- TimeOut Buenos Aires, Footprint and Fodors. Some key items about towns and lodging in Mendoza region I only found in Frommers. But, was weak on info for NW-Salta-JuyJuy region as compared to the others.

The lack of and veracity of this booklet are problems. Having moved to Costa Rica I have found many items mentioned in the book to be unsupported.
Frommer's Argentina Jan. 21 2013
By Sue - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Frommer's are great reference books. We have used Frommer's books over a period of years on our travels to different countries.
We have also tried different reference books but we prefer Frommer's (they seem more personal).

We travel twice a year independently and we wouldn't think about travelling without one.

Now I have a kindle it is ever better as I am always looking for ways to lighten my load.
