    South America is epic - and so is the Footprint Handbook, now in its 90th edition. Home to the world's highest waterfall, the longest mountain range and the largest rainforest, this continent will baffle you with its enormity.

From Inca ruins and tropical jungles to the vast open plains of Patagonia - Footprint's revised and updated guide to South America provides comprehensive coverage, enabling you to escape the crowd and discover the continent for yourself. * Highlights section so you know what not to miss * Practical information on how to get to each country and around, plus suggested itineraries to help you plan your trip, whether you are travelling for a week or a month * Well researched cultural and historical background sections * Tips for travelling with your kids * The core of the guide provides comprehensive coverage of Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay, Venezuela, the Guianas, and the Falkland Islands. * Each country and region has an overview map which includes 'Don't miss' destinations, local information on how to get around and detailed street maps where relevant * Detailed listings on where to sleep, eat and play are provided for every destination within each country, enabling you to have an even better travel experience.
