Comment I only bought the online PDF for the northwest chapter, but the prices are largely out of date already (as of Dec 2011). Prices for tours in the Misiones province are now double that stated in the book. A hostel rated in the F category is now in the C category. While this is due to the rampant inflation in Argentina (estimated at 20-30%) rather than any fault of the guide, it`s something to bear in mind (maybe there was a disclaimer in the full book that I missed).
I also found it maybe a bit optimistic of what you could do if you only spoke only a little beginner`s Spanish. In San Ignacio no one really spoke any English at all and so it was hard to get basic tourist information (the information centre had only one pamphlet in total), or organise a visit to Santa Ana of Loreto than it perhaps have made out in the book.
