4.0 out of 5 stars A great book Feb. 6 2014

Wowee' a heavy book with 1,848 pages of great information.
The letters in it are quite small, the pages are very thin.
But i guess it had to be, as it has loads of pages & lots of maps.
It includes helpful info on entertainment, hotels, fun places to visit.
The maps are at the back of the book, it's quite easy to read them.
Anyhow i'm enjoying this book, i just with that the pages were a good bit wider.
If they were, it would be easier to handle & easier to read with larger photo's.

South American Handbook, 88th (Footprint) Excellent very useful information book, but too heavy for a backpacker, if you are going to one country makes it difficult to carry with you.

my youngsters are taking a backpack trip in spring to S. A.
can tell you when they are back, if the book was helpful.
When I was backpacking in Latin America I found it quite hlplful, it's ages ago, though..
