Meet the Author


Regis St. Louis first visited Brazil in 2003, and fell in love with the stunning landscapes, the dynamic music scene, and the open and celebratory spirit of its citizens. Since then he's been a frequent visitor, celebrating carnaval in Rio and Salvador, traveling much of the Amazon and the Pantanal, and exploring sleepy villages and booming metropolises along the entire length of the Atlantic Coast. He is the coordinating author of Lonely Planet Guides to Brazil, Rio de Janeiro, and South America, and his articles on Brazil have appeared in the Telegraph, the Chicago Tribune, the LA Times, on BBC.com and elsewhere. He lives in New York City.

    Poor format

    I'm a big fan of Lonely Planet, but the free sample of this NOOKbook was a very poor format that was akward to read and not worth the effort.
