The New York Times: 36 Hours Latin America & The Caribbean Flexibound – by Barbara Ireland (Taschen)

The books is beautiful and includes insights into places that sometimes not even the natives know which is a huge plus. But In Latin America and the Caribbean is common for places and restaurants to close after only a couple of years so a lot of the information regarding Brazil, Argentina, Peru is not updated. I followed their online articles for up to date tips.
