    Great guide

    We should have bought this map before we planned our trip. We went there for our honeymoon and we had a blast. The roads there are, hmm, different... Street names are rare, but between local directions and this map we at least made it close to where we wanted to be. This has a lot of great features like where activities are located with specific icons, blown up areas of popular destinations, and as it says it is waterproof (great for a rainforest no?).If we had bought this before we planned our trip it would have given us a general idea of what to do where without spending a lot of time online researching. First, let me say that while 3G and GPS signals are strong, we had more issues with the software and directions not being up to date (or correct for that matter) and it's good we brought a physical map as a backup. We ended up ditching the GPS and relying on the map only because it was easier and better. So, my advice, skip the GPS from the start and just buy this... 5/5 Paul G.

    This is the map you want to buy if you are coming to Costa Rica

    Really good map

    0 4/5 Lisa Cheever - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Waterproof Travel Map of Costa Rica (Map) It is durable and accurate and will be used in return trips. It gave a sense of where we were, where we wanted to be and what the relationship was between places and roads. The wiggles and joggles were accurate and the printing was nicely clear. Bring a map with you. It was hard to find a good one there. Even if you have GPS which we did we referred to this well appointed map. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 26, 2013

    Travelogue Adventures

    This is the perfect travel guide to Costa Rica - for both visitors and people who live here!

    There were several things I loved about this e-book:1. It's divided into "what kind of trip you want to take" sections (family, adventure, wildlife, birding, eco-treking... to name a few!), so you can easily go to the section that fits your trip plans the best.2. It covers all the "best things to do in Costa Rica" (in my opinion).3. It has maps, so you know where things are in relation to the whole country.4. It gives you a "trip plan" - based on what you want to do and for what length of time (this is great for those people who are visiting Costa Rica for the first time and have no idea where to start).5. It gives you tons of links to the back of the book for detailed travel information (plane, bus, rental cars, shuttles...) and activity details (websites, prices, phone numbers, hours open...).Personal things I liked about this book:a) Reading about Manuel Antonio (we are going there soon, and I've added a few things to our... 5/5 Jen Beck Seymour - See all my reviews This review is from: Top 10 Costa Rica Itineraries (Kindle Edition) There were several things I loved about this e-book:1.

    Excellent Travel E-book!

    0 5/5 Livia - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Top 10 Costa Rica Itineraries (Kindle Edition) This was a great book. It has everything that you want in a travel e-book. It is easy to read and use. It is short and to the point. You can easily jump to the parts of the book that you want to read or refer back to parts to re-read by using the hyperlinks they provide. I also loved the activities and transportation guides that give you all the practical info you need about how to get around. They even give insider tips like where you need a 4x4 because of bumpy roads (things we wouldn't have known otherwise). All in all, this had been my "go to" book for planning my upcoming trip to Costa Rica. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 21, 2014

    Perfect Planning Tool! Thanks!!

    I've been traveling a lot since last year, with very little time during trips to plan my Costa Rica adventure. I was stressed out because I'm a planner, but I didn't have enough time to read a big guide book before leaving for my trip. I was thrilled when I found out the authors, Matt and Jenn, were releasing a guide/itinerary book just in time for me to plan my trip and make the necessary reservations. I had already read their previous book "Two Weeks in Costa Rica" (which is an enjoyable must-read, by the way), and was excited to read this new book, especially because Matt and Jenn know Costa Rica extremely well. Not only have they been traveling there for years, they've been living in Costa Rica, permanently, since 2013. And that's exactly the kind of guidebooks I like to read, written by people who know the place I'm going to visit intimately.I leave for Costa Rica in a couple of days, and I'm totally relaxed.

    Soothing Costa Rica vibe

    0 5/5 Melissa (Dallas, Texas) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Living Landscapes Costa Rica (Amazon Instant Video) Loved this Costa Rica video. I don't know why I thought it was going to be informational, but it wasn't. It was more of a very relaxing tour through the rain forest of Costa Rica. The sound track and all of the nature sounds are very soothing. I turn it on sometimes just to relax. :) 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 26, 2014
