4.0 out of 5 stars SCARY, 15 Aug 2011
By 
This review is from: Lonely Planet Healthy Travel - Central & South America (Paperback)
I think this book is completely informative about all the important things you need to consider when in South America
However i do find tapeworms, dysentery-(bloody diahorrea to me and you!) and all things that will scare you out of your trip of lifetime a little excessive at first
However, it has given me the determination to go, as these things do occur (unfortunately), be more realistic and do 4 of the most important things:
1)wash hands before eating- and after loo thoroughly - don't touch face,eyes ears with hands- especially if you are roughing it
2) dont go barefoot anywhere, even on beaches and when swimming/to protect feet no matter what as they carry you everywhere
3) be wary of mosquito bites- a real must!! clothing/insect repellent
4) take thermometer! if you get ill- and are away from medical care- this will be a way to monitor your illness and ensure you get help in time if illness becomes severe

i think it will be indispensable when I go, and the first aid section- with diagrams is brilliant

5.0 out of 5 stars Useful, 9 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lonely Planet Healthy Travel - Central & South America (Paperback)
I bought this for friends soon to embark on trips to Central and South America. I used a previous version on my travels and it was very useful. Concise but detailed enough. Useful advice for pre-departure precautions and when/if problems arise in-country. Small size made it handy to pop into my luggage.
