2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 24 Aug 2013

This review is from: Lonely Planet Brazil (Travel Guide) (Paperback)
I just returned from a month-long travel in Brazil with this book. I was disappointed many times by the level of detail of the book and the recommendations made by the authors. While I understand that with the country that big there is a limit to the level of detail that can be covered in a guidebook, the book often includes entries about towns or locations that are full of generalizations (beautiful nature, etc) but contain very little practical info. I was also shocked on a few occasions when checking into recommended "pousadas", several times what was described by the book as a very tasteful and cozy place turned out to be a cheap and extremely spartan one with not a hint of taste or care. While I assume some things may have changed for worse since the book was written, a few of these places did not look like they were ever tasteful or cosy. Finally, the book is simply outdated.
