1.0 out of 5 stars A poor,vague and incorrect guide, 5 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Rough Guide to South America On a Budget (Paperback)
We are currently using this guide travelling around Suuth America, we have used it for Brazil,Bolivia and Peru so far and will need it for Chile and Argentina. Overall the guide has been disappointing, it is very rough - it seems to miss quite a few features of places,i.e. everyone else in our hostel knew about a free tour in La Paz, yet the rough gude didnt mention it or it will suggest random musuems, which sometimes are gems but miss the main attractions or fail to mention something to see nearby.

It is also inaccurate for a variety of places, either saying buses run which dont, even though routes stopped by 2012 and prices are wrong, e.g. for hostels, museums, buses, some mistakes are inevitable but there are simply too many in this 2013! edition.

NO guide is perfect, but this is a real let down, we find ourselves constantly checking others Lonely Planet and the internet because we are not confident this guide is doing a very good job. Just a little too rough to be honest.
