Highly detailed with many insets, laminated, easy to fold, portable and legible. This is a must for anyone travelling to Buenos Aires for the first time. The maps you get in guidebooks cannot compare. I found it especially useful in booking hotels- I almost booked one in Villa Crespo without truly appreciating how far it is from both the Centro and even Palermo. The entire series is especially handy for travellers who tend to walk or use transit while visiting a new city. Sure, a little pricey, but it pays for itself with the advanced knowlege you get while planning your itinerary.

Upside down map Jan. 27 2013
By Traveler50 - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I started out using this map as it is easy to mark on and has detailed neighborhood maps. I finally gave up on it because the top of the map faces South. I have used maps and traveled the world for four decades. I have become accustomed to maps that face North on the top. For three days I used this map and found I instinctively turned the wrong way at a street intersection and had to retrace my steps in the opposite direction. If you turn it to the North all the street names and landmark names are upside down.

I found a correct one in a bookstore and off I went.

Streetwise BA map July 7 2013

Horrible, I spend a lot of time in Buenos Aires and I bought this map for my house guests and I had a hard time following it. The free maps at the paper stands are 1000% better.

Excellent Map of Buenos Aires July 17 2011
By David Carnes - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I spent a month in Buenos Aries in early 2011, splitting my time between staying in an apartment in San Telmo for the first part of my visit and staying in an apartment in Palermo for the last part of my visit. I bought the map with me from Amazon.com before I left. The map was of high quality and I found it to be very, very useful in finding my way about this beautiful and big city. I highly recommend it!
P.S. This review was inadvertently previously posted by me a a review of the Rough Guide to Buenos Aires.

Streetwise Map Jan. 11 2011
By Paul Woods - Published on Amazon.com

Not a bad map, but a little difficult to use due to small fonts. The street index is very helpful. I would have been happier with it had I taken a grease pencil along to temporarily mark routes of interest and locations directly on the map. It did seem accurate.
