About the Author

A native of California, Shawn Blore has lived and worked in a half dozen countries and traveled in at least 50 more (but who’s counting?). Long a resident of Vancouver, Shawn has for the past few years made his home in Rio de Janeiro. He is an award–winning magazine writer and the author of Vancouver: Secrets of the City and co–author of Frommer’s Brazil and Frommer’s Portable Rio de Janeiro. Alexandra de Vries made her first journey to Brazil at the ripe old age of 1 month. (Alas, few of her food reviews from that trip survive.) In the years since, Alexandra has returned many times to travel, explore, and live in this amazing country. Alexandra cowrites Frommer’s Brazil and Frommer’s Portable Rio de Janeiro about her all–time favorite place to visit. Writer and photographer Nicholas Gill is based in Lima, Peru and Brooklyn, New York. His work regularly appears in publications such as the New York Times , Conde Nast Traveler , Caribbean Travel & Life, and World Hum. He has also contributed to Frommer’s Chile & Easter Island and Frommer’s Central America and written Frommer’s Honduras . Eliot Greenspan is a poet, journalist, and travel writer who took his backpack and typewriter the length of Mesoamerica before settling in Costa Rica in 1992. Since then, he has traveled almost ceaselessly around Latin America, writing articles and guidebooks to feed his travel habit. He feels particularly at home in the neotropics—in its rain and cloud forests, on its rivers, and under its seas. Eliot is the author of Frommer’s Ecuador, Frommer’s Costa Rica, Frommer’s Belize , and Costa Rica Day by Day. Charlie O’Malley is a writer and wine enthusiast who can be found living in Argentina, when he’s not traveling the rest of South America. He has also worked on Frommer’s Central America, Nicaragua & El Salvador , and Argentina . Christie Pashby is the author of Frommer´s Banff and Jasper National Parks and a contributing writer to Frommer’s Argentina and Frommer’s Chile & Easter Island . She divides her time between the Canadian Rockies and Patagonia, where she runs a small guiding business with her husband. Jisel Perilla worked with a nonprofit microcredit organization in Medellín, Colombia, and has written about, lived in, and traveled throughout much of Latin America. She currently resides in the Washington, D.C., area and is the author of Frommer’s Panama . Neil Edward Schlecht first trekked to Machu Picchu in 1983 as a college student, while spending his junior year abroad in Quito, Ecuador. The author of more than a dozen travel guides (including Frommer’s Peru and Buenos Aires Day by Day ) and a photographer, he has lived for extensive periods in Brazil and Spain. He now resides in Litchfield County, CT.

not as it was shown to be 29 Sept. 2010
By DML - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
i have traveled using frommer's books for many years & they never have steered me wrong. my problem is with amazon's "preview" of the book. when i viewed the table of contents, it showed that there was a chapter on antarctica. since i will be traveling there, i considered this a bonus. when i received the book, its table on contents did not match up with what was shown on amazon's website - no antarctica. i double checked this. how can amazon show a table of contents on its order page that is not the same as the one that is actually in the book? i feel that i've been cheated & would hesitate to order a book online from amazon again.

Good, but not great 27 Sept. 2013

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As a backpacker who sometimes splurges, it's more for the splurge part... then again, I'm finding Rick Steves quite good for that too. This is the middle ground between Lonely Planet & Rick Steves. Best for finding good places to eat.

Up to date travel information. Very detailed. Wish it had more photographs and more detailed maps. Worth reading if going to Peru and Galapagos.

Is any guidebook really useful? 12 May 2012
By OCVagabond - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The biggest problem with all guidebooks is that they are not useful beyond the general overview. Don't pay attention to any of the specifics. The other problem is that once you get to a country and want to go a level deeper to areas that are not the top 3 to 5 destinations in a region. Oh, and this book is useless if you are on a budget. Then again, don't pay any attention to the specific recommendations and this problem goes away.

Outrageous prices for written travel guides 19 Oct. 2013
By Steve - Published on
Format: Paperback
I am very disappointed about what is happening to written travel guide books, and I want to say how outraged I am that someone would sell a South American Frommer's Guide for $90.00 and another seller wants $70.00. Good Luck! I guess I will just have to investigate new alternatives such as DK or Insight. To the sellers of these books -- again good luck, and anything for a buck! Right on people! Hope no one decides to buy these books from these greedy people...
