Just okay. I found that the maps were inaccurate and format made it really hard to use when you were actually there. We were a month in Panama and although I used it I more often than not just gave up.

La guía más completa de Lisboa, con mapas claros y los mejores consejos para planificar una escapada.

Con edificios de vivos colores y atmósfera festiva, Lisboa seduce con su gastronomía creativa y de inspiración internacional, con sus boutiques de vinilos y ropa vintage en las empinadas calles del Bairro Alto y con sus museos, que albergan desde esculturas de Rodin u obras de Durero y Warhol hasta galerías que custodian el rico patrimonio histórico-cultural del país. Tanto si se brinda por las nuevas amistades en las estrechas calles del Bairro Alto, se disfruta de la música en directo en Cais do Sodré o se toma un ginjinha en Rossio, se hace difícil resistirse a la capital portuguesa.… (mais)

I have never reviewed a guide before and unlike with books there is not much I can say about this guide besides it provides a lot of information that I think will be very helpful to those who live in the USA and visitors to the country.

The guide starts off with a introduction titled "Welcome to the USA. Followed by a map that shows all of the states and the capitals. This is then followed by the USA's Top 25. One quibble that I had with this list is that the authors combined attractions and cities. I wish that they had separated out the lists. A two page "Need to Know" provides a reader with details on the currency of the U.S. (the U.S. dollar), time zones, language, etc. There are also some other sections called "If you Like" that provide details on certain destinations if you happen to like the beach. Following that is a "Month by Month" section provides information on festivals, holidays, etc. that are celebrated throughout the U.S.

Eventually the guide provides information on the different regions in the USA and the states within those regions. I did like the color photos throughout the guide as well as the emphasis placed on certain restaurants and attractions that are popular at those cities.

I still gave this guide 4.5 stars due to the fact that though it contains a ton of detail this is a bulky guide. I can't imagine that many people would want to take this with them on a trip let alone carry it around all day when exploring a city.

Please note that I received this guide for free via the Amazon Vine Program.

I always love the Lonely Planet guide books. They always start off with such wonderful pictures and the top 20 or 10 of places to visit. For example, in Brazil, the best tourist attraction, according to them, is Pão de Açúcar. It's a lovely mountain with a lovely view of golden beaches and green hills with skyscrapers on the shore. Pick up a copy from Amazon, or your local bookstore to find out the rest! I like the beginning most, because each of the places in the top 20, have their own page in the book. For example, you can find out more about Pão de Açúcar on page 59 and 60. I also like how the authors put the history behind the buildings and landmarks. There are also transportation tips, restaurant tips, hotel tips, boat tips, and so much more! You could really flip to any page and learn something new about Brazil. The authors didn't forget to add pictures and detailed information about the wildlife living in the Amazon Rainforest! If you need to know anything about Brazil, this book is one of the best books that you can get to learn more about Brazil. So the next time you're in a bookstore, try flipping through the pages, I am sure you'll find something that sparks your interest!… (mais)
