    Fortunately they're on a strong up with the 11th edition

    Lonely Planet Costa Rica has had its ups and downs over the years with some of the editions (starting around the 7th) suffering from some stale information and some strong opinions about the over-commercialization of Costa Rican tourism that came across as preachy to many readers. Fortunately they're on a strong up with the 11th edition. They've done a great job converting to full color using it to make things clearer and to give a better picture (literally) of what to expect and look for. The maps especially have benefited immensely from the addition of color. The specialty blurb sections (What's New, Itineraries, Eat and Drink Like a Local, Activities Guide, Travel with Children etc) that in previous editions seemed to be tacked on as a sort of lame attempt to appeal to the internet generation's expectations of brightly colored graphic heavy splashes of information have matured into useful and informative short chapters.

    Best for those looking purely for activity/tour suggestions

    I got this from Amazon Vine in advance of a trip to Costa Rica (which I took last week). The trip was a prearranged adventure tour, and we also added in some extra activities for our "free" time. However, the areas that we visited (Tortuguero and La Fortuna/Arenal) are included in this book. The book is selectively informative, alternately going into lots of detail about what you can expect at a certain place and then turning around and having whole paragraphs just bouncing back and forth between "highlights" that are distinguished by being in bold text. It is mostly helpful, though, if it suits your needs for helping you learn about the country and/or plan a trip there on your own. You will certainly get a taste for it by reading the chapters and looking at the pictures. If you, like me, already have a trip planned out, this will probably be less helpful. To be honest, I left it at home and didn't feel like I was missing anything.This book is best if you... 3/5 Ryan Winkleman (CA) - See all my reviews, December 10, 2013

    Glad I had it!

    I wasn't holding out much hope for value on this little "brochure" of wildlife but it turned out to be very nice to have. We just returned from a trip to Panama and Costa Rica and the guides - experienced naturalists with National Geographic and also from the parks and the Smithsonian - used it along with others. They are available for different regions and types of wildlife and I purchased two more when I was down there. Easy to carry on a hike, easy to refer to and great for the kids. They are certainly very basic but we were in isolated areas and some of us only got glimpses of an anteater or agouti so as the naturalists were talking about it, we could look at the guide and try to spot it again. Then if I only saw the tail, I knew what it looked like! Hiking up 300-500 ft. on muddy uneven trails with a camera in one hand, binoculars around my neck and a small backpack with water and such, it was hard to pull out a book for reference so if your trip is going to be at all like... 5/5 C.
