Product description

Amazon Review

For those looking to experience South America for the first time, Ecuador is a decent choice, being both small and relatively safe for visitors. There is also a wide range of options for learning Spanish in Quito--one of the most pleasant capital cities on the continent--and the jungle in Ecuador contains the richest birdlife in the world. But, on a continent where things can go wrong, it is vital to have a good guide, and this book fits the bill. Here you will find tips on where to wash your socks and have your teeth pulled in Quito, as well as a richer look at history and culture than is provided by some of the competition.

Guidebooks can give travel writing a bad name, but Rough Guides are rarely among them, and it is good to see that this new guide to Ecuador is part of an expanding list for Latin America (other recent additions include Argentina, Chile and Cuba). Illustrated with photographs of high quality, and written by old Latin American hands, the book comes with essential information for visitors while casting an erudite eye over everything from flora and fauna to the fascinating histories of Andean weavers at Otavalo and Darwin's visit to the Galápagos. The South American Handbook remains the best overall guide to the continent but, for Ecuador alone, this book will prove hard to beat. --Toby Green --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Format: Paperback
An excellent and much more objective travel guide for those of us who are tired of Lonely Planets constant hidden political messages and suggestive americanized writing style. Highly recommended.

Having spent over a year travelling the world, I have read or purchased most of the major guidebook brands at one time or another. I have always like Rough Guides as a brand as they are concise and straight to the point with less of the extraneous stuff that fills Lonely Planet that no one ever reads. The print is also easier to read tan some guidebooks in poor light( which is always when I seem to be reading it!)

It is easy to forget that whilst formats are the same guidebooks vary in quality tremendously with the author, who, in this case has don an excellent job.
