Reviews - What do customers think about Bolivia, 4th (Footprint - Travel Guides)?

If you are a outdoor buff you need this guide.   Oct 7, 2006
There was a day when `Rough Guide' and `Lonely Planet' were the best South America guides available for travelers that go "off the beaten path." But slowly, year by year, `Footprint's coverage of South America has improved, and now this Footprint Bolivia is one of the best guides out today.

If you are an outdoor buff you need this guide. This edition has an excellent section on `Trekking near La Paz' as well as a great section on ` Hiking, Biking and Climbing' in Bolivia. Like Alan Murphy's previous Bolivian guide, the History, Economy, Culture, People and Environment section is not to be skipped. Excellent.

The maps are very good and will help you locate accommodations and eateries quickly. The guide's recommendations for accommodations and restaurants are reliable. None of the restaurants that I visited were outstanding, but then, people do not go to Bolivia for the cuisine.

On the "downside", the section on language schools (p.134) is not listed in the index and only by luck would you stumble upon it. All Footprint guides continue the frustrating codes used to tell you the cost of rooms and food. Instead of just telling you that a room is $25-30, they use LL, L, AL, A, B, C, D, E, F, G. For restaurants they use dollar signs, $$$, $$, $. They should just tell us the cost of a meal -- $8 to $12. Simple. Offensive is Footprint's insertion of advertisements (hotels, tour companies and travel services) throughout the guide. Is it not enough that you paid $24.95 for the guide? The advertisements also cause one to question the integrity of the guide's recommendations, especially when an advertiser, with a full page ad, is also strongly recommended by the authors. Hmm.

Among the many Bolivian guides that I have taken with me and reviewed, two currently are recommendable: "Pocket Adventures Bolivia" (see my review) and "Footprint Bolivia". You won't go wrong with either one.
Strongly Recommended.
