Argentina Footprint Handbook Summary

Argentina Footprint Handbook by Lucy E. Cousins

The guide opens with a beautiful colour section full of inspirational photographs and advice to help you plan your trip giving you a flavour of the best things to see and do. The guide then includes carefully selected itineraries giving you advice on how to get the best out of your stay whether you're travelling for a week or a month. From the dry deserts of the north to the frozen landscapes of the south this guide provides extensive, thoroughly researched information which will help you plan your trip as well as advise you on the ground. The Essentials section provides great advice on how to get there and how to get around as well as information on sleeping, eating, drinking and shopping giving you an idea of what you can expect to pay. The heart of the guide is broken in to the key regions of Argentina - Buenos Aires, Buenos Aires province, Cordoba & Central Sierras, Mendoza & the West, the Northwest, The Northeast, Lake District, Patagonia, Chilean Patagonia, Tierra del Fuego - and gives you comprehensive information on each of these regions. Each regional section has an overview map, local information on how to get around with transport and street maps where relevant, a short history of the region, thorough advice on what to see and do and a directory of key local information on banks, embassies, internet cafes, medical and even laundry services. There is a full-colour mini atlas which has maps of each region to help you get your bearings and a distance chart to help you plan your journeys. From the behemoth capital Buenos Aires with its hip bars and chic boutiques to the mighty Iguazu Falls thundering through lush jungle filled with electric-blue butterflies to silent glaciers stretching endlessly before you, Footprint's fully updated 6th edition will help you navigate this immense, intense and dramatic country.
