Last Tango in Argentina

Certain things are uniquely Argentinean; the seductive tango, soccer mania, or the dulce de leche (milk caramel) that is widely used in cooked food. Argentina offers a wide variety of attractions for tourists to enjoy; the best Argentinean wines, unique food, and nightlife in Buenos Aires, hiking, mountaineering and skiing. Walking in front of Mount Fitz Roy in Patagonia's Parque Nacional Los Glaciares is breath-taking: Snow-covered Mountains with blue sky in the backgroun

in Argentina, almost every tourist is carrying this book. This means that you run into LP tourists in almost every place you go suggested by the book!
That said, the book was helpful for planning my 3 week vacation. All the descriptions made everything sound so great - it was sometimes difficult to choose one place over another. THis is the 2005 edition, most prices have doubled since then (now - 2007).

Our edition was from 2005, but the prices ran about 2 or 3 times what the guide listed for the most part. It was outright wrong about Argentina not observing daylight savings time. Temporal anomalies anyone?

It's intended to be a guide, not a rule book anyway.

The answer to everything seemed to be mostly, "Maybe in Buenos Aries." The people are friendly. We saw some amazing sights. The maps helped out for sure.

The organization of the content made things a snap to find. However, it doesn't have as much information as the Rough Guide, which I would recommend. Both on a trip is perfect because they compliment each other well, but if you take one I'd suggest the RG simply due to its massive wealth of information. Note that prices in the book are already outdated (much lower than what you'll find) due to Argentina's economic recovery.

I've used this guide for two months I Argentina now, and it hasn't let me down. I have the 9th edition from 2014. It is written in a quite lavish language, but not as commercial as most other travel guides. Be aware that the inflation in Argentina's economy has rendered the prices listed in the book obsolete (generally you should multiply every price by a least 2).

Next stop, Argentine.
Don't cry for me, Argentina. LP always handy for a leg up. Not the only resource though but good enough for the starting leg. I usually mix and match WWW resources, Rough Guide and LP depending on the country and my mood. This is another solid LP offering - recommended for your trip and can't wait to put it into action.
Great resource before and during my amazing Argentinian adventure. Hotel and restaurant recs were dead-on.

Armchair traveling to Argentina is pretty fun with this book in hand. Now I need to go real traveling to Argentina...
