Severely Lacking Feb. 21 2012
By Kirsten Miller - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book for my several month trip around Chile and because it was updated in 2011 therefore making it more current than the current release of Lonely Planet. I should have just bought the Lonely Planet. It's missing several cities - Concepcion (2nd largest city in Chile), Valdivia, Pichilemu, and probably more but after it being completely useless for the first few cities, I chucked it. These are not insignificant places and have their fair share of tourists but wasn't even in the book. Not only that, but they offer very few budget options. I will only buy Lonely Planet from here on out.

Informative April 3 2012
By emka - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book has everything you would want to know about Chile and Easter Island. It includes reviews of some of the biggest attractions in each city(mainly they tell you if the site is worth seeing). They also list hotels and places to eat according to price. There are also good tips about traveling in each city and how best to get around whether it be via bus or walking. Very good purchase if you are traveling to Chile and need some travel advice!

Just Good March 16 2012
By F. Fernandes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This guide has all the basic necessary information and it is useful for the first trip plan, but when you want to go to the details, than it lacks information. It is just a good start for your plan, but you will need extra source of information for a better trip planning.

Not for the budget traveler Feb. 20 2012
By Jonathan S. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This guidebook is ok (not great but better than nothing), but it is not intended for the budget traveler. If you are looking to spend less than $100/night in Chile (lodging for two), this is not the guide book for you. Most towns have few, or no options for inexpensive lodging listed. The restaurant guide also seems to lean toward the expensive side. The maps and general information about cities and activities are ok, but sometimes a little slim (For instance, couldn't find a section about Concepcion, one of the largest cities in Chile. Also couldn't always find helpful info like the location of local laundry services). I've always bought Lonely Planet guide books before this. I only bought this guidebook because it was more recently updated than the LP Chile guide. However, after using this book on my Chile trip, I wish I had bought the older LP guide.
Numerous inaccuracies Dec 19 2012
By Lana Abernathy Bump - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This was worse than useless, as it actually misdirected us, rather than simply not directing us. Too many inaccurate listings to count: bad addresses, wrong hours/days of operation, extremely low price estimates, etc. Also, the Kindle version of this was needlessly difficult to navigate. Do not buy this--you'll be better with no guide book at all than this one.
