This book was pretty informative and was what turned us on to the state of Michoacan in general and to Moralia in particular, for which I will always be grateful. There were some great food recommendations like La Inmaculada and Churros Rellenos. Hotel info was so-so, some of the places were definitely not as advertised especially when it came to connectivity. Also there were a few epicly bad sets of directions (the path to the waterfall ended at what looked like a place for dumping bodies and a...more
As always, Lonely Planet provides great recommendations making travel a virtual no brainer. I was able to easily find clean hotels to stay in in Oaxaca city and Puerto Escondido, as well as websites to make reservations for bus trip from Mexico City to Oaxaca city and a combi ride from Oaxaca to Puerto Escondido. The descriptions clearly described what I could expect when traveling. Yeah for Lonely Planet making budget travel so easy!!
Pretty informative in the places it covers but too biassed and too many places missing.
I don't think LP guides should include information on hotels and restaurants anymore, at least not for major cities and big towns where there are a lot of options and often those recommend by LP aren't the best.
LP's books are generally my go-to travel guides. This one on Mexico was good, but not great for info on the state of Oaxaca. If your looking for a region specific book you are better off going with a "Moon Handbook."
Not the BEST travel book of all time, but the maps and hotel listings were used heavily during our trip across Mexico. Definitely helpful.
I"m reading this throughout the semester either:
1) in the bathtub;
2) while wearing my new swimsuit.

And it's keeping me sane.
Excellent, thorough guide. Lonely Planet always covers travel that is more reasonable and less "touristy," which I love!
Do guide books count, because I have several trips to plan for. Yippee!
