A full range of must-do travel experiences are featured such as trekking on horseback through the Andes and wildlife excursions around the Valdés peninsula, famed for its penguin colonies and whale-watching.

I'm in Buenos Aires now, after a week tasting wine in Mendoza, and this book has been authoritative, current (given publication date) and correct, which I can't say for Lonely Planet and DK books I dragged along too. Nice incisive text with a touch of gentle wit tossed in for good measure. I've used it throughout my journey. Bradt should commission Erin McCloskey to do an update because it's a classic.
