I used 'South America on a Shoestring: Big Trips on Small Budgets (Lonely Planet Shoestring Guide)' for my time over there and i cant really complain, comprehansive and to be honest one of the better lonely planets. I wasnt a fan of their guides for the state or SEA but i think they hit the nai lon the head with the south american guide. No really expereince of the others apart from looking at fellow travellers, to be honest i dont think there is a great deal of difference. I just preffer the layout in LP.

Regards
Mike
