One of the drawbacks is the time taken between writing, editing and publishing, which inevitably causes the information to be slightly behind the times.
Recent natural events e.g.earthquakes,tsunamis and volcanic eruptions necessitate referral to the internet to get the latest accurate info. to avoid plans coming 'unstuck'.
Tourism is receiving a lot of emphasis in Chile and there are constant improvements being made in communication infrastructure e.g new roads, improved roads and bridges, but even the Tourist Offices are not aware of all that is going on! perhaps that's all part of the adventure.
Another thing it says is 'you can rent horses outside the park'. I interpreted this to mean that I could rent a horse OUTSIDE the park. So I arrived there expecting to find horses OUTSIDE the park only to discover that 'outside the park' to lonely planet means there are farms along a 5km stretch of road leading up to the National park, which once you have walked it after first going to the park you will find that all the horses have already been rented! because you're hours later than everyone else... Oh how i was annoyed and disappointed.
So this is the last time I will be buying a lonely planet guide book. Maybe I'm just naive for believing in all the details, but I at least expect distances to be told correctly in a guide book. If they are going to feature a place and talk about the things you can do there, at least include all relevant information and correct distances otherwise it's very misleading.
Would definetely buy again!
