Please note, I only used this book in Nicaragua.
Don't be put off buying this book by "only" a 3-star review. Travelling in Nicaragua for three months, this book was a very good source of information on where to go, how to get there and where to stay. However, there were some inaccuracies. The Little Corn chapter in particular, completely focuses on a resort-style hotel on the island run by americans, where you can book online from home, go and enjoy their private beach, eat every meal at the hotel and go scuba diving with the same company. This is not the type of place I would expect Lonely Planet recommend at the detrimental expense of other locally-run hotels. However, this is a first edition, so this may improve with subsequent publications. In the meantime, most people I met were pleased with the "Moon" guide

Not great, but your only choice 12 Jan 2008
By jcs - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This guide to Nicaragua and El Salvador isn't great, but if you're traveling to El Salvador, this is all there is.

The book would benefit from better organization, better maps, and less snarkiness. (and why did they put Nicaragua and El Salvador in the same book -- the two countries don't even share a border!) Alas, no other publishers offer a current El Salvador guidebook, so you have no other choices.

When Moon publishes an El Salvador guidebook, I'll be the first in line to buy it...

happy traveler 2 April 2013
By buyer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have used Lonely Planet books for years. They always give great information, and they please very different travelers - from rich to poor, students, retirees, families....etc. They tell you what's most practical and important for safety. They give very different options in terms of eating, sleeping and seeing sites. The maps and travel information help a lot!

Lonely Planet is the best out there... 16 Jan 2007
By Ernesto Hernandez - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Lonely Planet is by far the best travel series for independently-minded, backpacking folk. That notwithstanding, my only question for this particular book would have to be: Why did Lonely Planet put Nicaragua and El Salvador together in one book? This seems a bit arbitrary, since (as a native-born Nicaraguan) these are both very different countries with substantially different things to offer a traveler. Additionally, both countries are vibrant enough to each warrant a separate book. But all in all, I think it's still the definitive guidebook for travelers.

Really Disappointed 22 Dec 2012
By Amy L. Frost - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Although I knew that this was a paperback, I thought for the price, (over $50.00) that it would be more substantial. It arrived a little beat up, and was the size of a supermarket paperback. What really upset me was the fact that publisher's price printed on the back cover was $19.99. I bought this to give as a Christmas gift to a family member, and ended up just including it as a stocking stuffer. Over $56.00 with shipping! I felt completely ripped off.

Let's put it to the test! 16 Nov 2007
By E. Boeker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book came highly recommended and when we decided to visit my husband's country of birth, I thought I better prepare myself. Reading through this book, marking up where I think I might like to go, made me wish I would not have to wait till December to get there. I particularly like the fact that it was a bunch of women on their own who did the research to this book - not being Latina, I know I will stick out when we get there, but I feel that I am warned now and that things might not be as bad as they used to be. I think I might write an update to this review once we have been and tried some of the places described in the book!
