About the Author

Michael Luongo has written on Argentina for the New York Times, National Geographic Traveler, Bloomberg News, Out Traveler, and many other publications. He is also the author of Frommer's Buenos Aires. His debut novel, The Voyeur, was published by Alyson Books in 2007, and he has written several other travel books. 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. Visit him at www.michaelluongo.com and www.misterbuenosaires.com.

Charlie O'Malley is an Irishman who lives and works in Mendoza, Argentina. He has worked on several Frommer's guidebooks for countries all over South America and Central America. He edits his own magazine in Argentina called Wine Republic.

Christie Pashby has written for Frommer's for a decade. She covers western Canada and the southern regions of Chile and Argentina. By the time she was 25, Christie had lived in Berlin, the Cote d'Azur, Chile, and Costa Rica, and studied in three Canadian provinces, earning degrees from McGill University and University of King's College. But the mountains were calling; along with her Argentine husband, she splits her time between homes in Canmore, Alberta, and Bariloche, Argentina, two of the world's finest alpine playgrounds. She is a freelance translator, journalist, and also runs a small guiding business in Patagonia. Her website is www.patagonialiving.com.

1.0 out of 5 stars Argentina via Chicago Nov. 10 2007
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?

4.0 out of 5 stars Helpful Guide Nov. 1 2007
By Jan L. Deur - Published on Amazon.com
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars A disappointment Dec 7 2008
By M. L Russell - Published on Amazon.com
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars classic frommer guide Nov. 4 2007
By P. J. Soricone - Published on Amazon.com
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.

Of all the travel books available on Argentina, I like Frommer's the best. I like the way hotels and restaurants are categorized, I like the suggested itineraries, and I like information about sights and activities.

i was disappointed as it did not cover all of argentina,mostly tourist areas ,larger cities. but having been there before ,i know more about the smaller places that are great for vacationers. if you are hitting the tourist areas ,this book is great. if you are wanting great smaller towns and areas ,choose another book.
