I have read and used this book to go all over El Salvador. I have family members who live in Antigo Cuscatlan (outside of San Salvador) who have never even heard of some of the museums let alone have been there. But then again you are never a tourist in your own city. What's great about this guide book is that these places aren't touristy. They are hidden gems...

Possibly going to Nicaragua in January. LP's title seems to be pretty in-depth in regards to a country that is not covered extensively in the travel guide industry (that goes for El Salvador too). Though I did find it interesting that the guide covers two countries that are not linked by borders - even though they are near each other - you'd have to go through Honduras to go from one country to the other.

I completed the Nicaragua portion of the book, as I recently had the opportunity to visit there.
The minimum history and background contained in the book, sparked even more interest and excitement in visiting this country combined with my love for traveling. The book does need a little updating with facts and a small change in prices, but overall I think it was a great help to me.

Pretty good book for travelers, however sometimes town names and places were misspelled which made it hard to figure out where they were talking about. El Salvador is changing fast though so some things were already out of date (in a good way - like there not being ATMs in Suchitoto! Theres one now ;)
