1.0 out of 5 stars Just purchase Lonely Planet, 16 Jan. 2011
I have been travelling South and Central America for 5 months, and have found The Rough Guide frankly disappointing. Lonely planet, despite being slightly outdated, is still the backpackers' bible over here, with better accommodation and restaurant listings, more out-of-the-way areas detailed, and far more insightful suggestions and descriptions. I have met many travellers who have thrown this book away and gone and bought a Lonely Planet. I think LP have just released an updated version anyway, so do yourself a favour and get it instead.
