In print since 1924, and known as the travel bible to South America, Footprint South American Handbook is the longest running travel guide in the English language. Covering the entire continent, from Colombia to the tip of Argentina, this updated guide provides the adventurous traveler with everything needed to plan a trip, including tips on how to get there, where to stay, and where to play, from little-known attractions to exciting getaways, with extensive city maps and festival guides. This guide also provides information on staying healthy and keeping in touch from Footprint's acclaimed "Responsible Travel" perspective. From the practical "traveler's tips" easily located in the margins to the highlighted "best of" selections, this handbook provides the where and how of South American culture. Special sections cover how to plan a first-time visit, avoid the crowds, and find the best festivals and adventures. Now celebrating its 81st edition, the travel guide that set the standard features a major redesign and full-color highlight maps.
