Kurzbeschreibung

21. Juni 2010 Bradt Travel Guide Uruguay
They won the first soccer World Cup. There's a lot of beef raised on the pampa. That's all most people know about Uruguay. Bradt's "Uruguay", the only dedicated English-language guide to a country that's small yet bursting with character, shows that the adventurous tourist can uncover much more. It provides in-depth coverage of the capital Montevideo, where the colonial Old City is being restored. There's also detailed information on the coastal city of Colonia (which is on UNESCO's World Heritage List) as well as Punta del Este, to whose beaches the Buenos Aires beautiful crowd flocks each summer. There's advice, too, for active travellers who can rattle their whips on cattle-ranching estancias and spin their sticks in a game of polo or two and for nature enthusiasts keen to watch wildlife in the western wetlands and birds in Cabo Polonio and Santa Teresa. Plus, the book investigates the Brazilian influences behind Uruguay's music and dance, and the country's Afro-Uruguayan culture, most noticeable in Carnaval.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Finally a travel book about Uruguay!! 19. August 2010
Von GaryTucson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Ever since returning from living for two years in this wonderful South American country, I have been looking for a book to take me back. Even though this brand new travel guide has almost as much information in it about Argentina as it does Uruguay, it is the first definitive book ever published about the Eastern Republic of Uruguay. It is detailed enough to explore the changes that have occurred in the towns where I lived 35 years ago and esoteric enough to relive those days without going back.

If you are looking for a very good book about Uruguay or an excellent guide to help plan a trip to Uruguay's main tourist destinations (Montevideo, Colonia, Punta del Este, etc.) or the Buenos Aires area of Argentina across the Rio de la Plata, you can't go wrong with this well written, enjoyable guide. I highly recommend it for anyone wanting to know more about Uruguay.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Richly detailed but badly in need of an update 24. November 2012
Von Coolcaesar - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I received the Bradt guidebook to Uruguay as a Christmas gift from my sister last year. Having just returned from my long-planned weeklong vacation in Uruguay in November 2012, I can say that the Bradt book is good but not perfect.

The best thing about this book is that it is the only English-language guidebook out there that gives a fully detailed and nuanced treatment of Uruguay's history, people, cuisine, and culture, without which most of Uruguay's peculiar quirks, such as drinking yerba mate nonstop or naming an entire department of the country after the "treintas y tres" would not make sense.

All other guidebooks focus primarily on Montevideo, Punta, and Colonia. This book exhaustively covers those areas plus the rest of the country for people who actually want to go inland and see what rural Uruguay is like. The only other major option is the Footlight book on which is simply an excerpt from the huge Footlight guidebook to South America (and in turn suffers from the terseness typical of guidebooks that attempt to cover too much in one book). All other English travel publishers either do not cover Uruguay at all, or they cover it as a brief add-on to their books on Argentina or Buenos Aires.

The downside to this book, as several have noted, is that it appears to have been written during the early stage of the global financial crisis in 2009 and has not been updated since. But many, many things about Uruguay have changed since then, which are unfortunately, the things that are really, really important to tourists. For example, the book mentions that there are English-language newspapers available at Plaza Independencia. This is incorrect as of 2012; I know because I actually asked at all of the kiosks around the Plaza. (My guess is that the slowdown in Northern Hemisphere tourists during the recession probably caused the local retailers to stop carrying newspapers for those tourists.)

The Bradt book does not explain how to use the bewildering "estacionamento tarifado" system for tariffed parking in Ciudad Vieja and Centro from Monday to Friday which was first implemented in 1996. Indeed, several expats have loudly complained about the system on the Internet because it is so bizarre and confusing (relative to the far more elegant and easy-to-use parking meter solutions found in the United States). Even the locals at the tourist information offices in Montevideo were unable to explain how the system works in English.

There is no explanation of car guards, who are now prevalent in both Montevideo and Punta. I was lucky in that I had encountered car guards before in South Africa a year earlier (and they are thoroughly explained in guidebooks for that country), but visitors unprepared for them may find them strange.

The book does not adequately explain toll plazas, which is strange as they are ubiquitous on the national highway system. It would have been sufficient to explain that all toll plazas charge the same amount for automobiles (currently 55 pesos) to vehicles traveling in both directions.

There is no coverage of Montevideo's rising crime rate; I did my own research on the issue and was able to enjoy a wonderful crime-free visit, with the help of sources like the U.S. State Department's Overseas Security Advisory Council's annual Crime and Safety Report. But again, someone in the market for a travel guidebook like this would expect it to thoroughly address such basic issues like parking, tolls, and crime.

Finally, there was no warning that the observation lounge at the Torre de las Telecomunicaciones is often booked for special events, which means it is essential to call ahead because if an event is going forward, the visitor tour for that day will be canceled. Unfortunately, I discovered that fact the hard way. Visiting the Torre's observation lounge was not a must-do priority on this trip since Montevideo's skyline is so mediocre (relative to say, Chicago or New York), but it was still disappointing.

Overall, the Bradt book is still an excellent resource for anyone planning a trip to Uruguay, but with the above caveats in mind, be prepared to do your own additional research on online sources (like OSAC and Wikitravel).

3.0 von 5 Sternen Good, but suffers from some inaccuracies 16. Januar 2012
Von Ian C. Murphy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Just used this book on my recent trip to Uruguay.

While I found it informative, it had some inaccuracies that, while perhaps time dependent, were really frustrating.

One rule is that if there is something in this book listed as a great bargain, assume it will be double or more the cost listed in the book. I encountered this multiple occasions. And its definitely not exchange rate related.

Also, make sure you take tons of cash, because the ATM situation in Uruguay is really horrible for foriegn travellers.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Uruguay Guide 16. Juli 2011
Von Barbara Garcia - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I bought this book as a gift for my husband. He was estatic! The picture capture the gauchos that live there. The culture description was exact and the history was more informative than he realized.

He can't wait to share with his family. He and is family are from Uruguay and he was a vision of the country that he loves.

He asked me how I found the book. I explained I read reviews from Amazon and the review for this book captured my attention as well as the ability to read parts on Amazon.

Perfect book from anyone who wants to visit or just for those Uruguayans who want a real story about their beautiful country.
