    One thought on “Costa Rica”

    1. I wrote this when I first bought it: "I'm reading it for Peace Corps, but so far it seems Costa Rica has little to offer except toucans, monkeys, a lot of pretty trees, and decades of uninterrupted democracy. Boring.""Written by the guy who wrote the Moon Cuba book and that was really great, so the book has a good pedigree at least."Well, two years later and yeahwhat I wrote above was sort of true. But obviously not entirely. It is just that to see "real" Costa Rica is pretty impossible as a tou [...]

    2. I wasn't thrilled with the organization of this book - I just found it more difficult to find information than in my past Footprints and Lonely Planet guides. There was some great info in here and it was very detailed. The author recommended a fabulous restaurant in San Jose (Grano de Oro) that we loved. The "About Costa Rica" section in the back was also very detailed and really interesting. There were a few things that I would have changed (in addition to the organization): we stayed at a phen [...]

    3. One of the major differences in this guidebook is that on the maps inside, not only are all the spots identified, but they're identified in English. Plus, you don't have to look at one map for hotels, a second map for places to eat, and a third map for anything else (hospitals, museums, etc.), though separate maps are available also.

    4. while the dk book gave a nice overview of the regions, this guide gives a lot more detail, including for smaller towns barely mentioned in other books. the practical info re: getting around in the country seems very helpful.

    5. this is an awesome series of travel guides. let's hope it serves me well on my trip to costa rica in two days.

    6. A lot of info packed in here. Still, at a hand sized 850 pages it's a tote. It was arguably the best book I took and I took too many.
