    A fine travel book - though heavy - on Costa Rica- best for longer stays.

    In anticipation of a cruise which I booked which was stopping in Puerto Limon Costa Rica, I got this new travel guide from the always - user-friendly Frommer's Guide series. (I've been using Frommer's Guides for over 40 years. This book is really comprehensive and therefore weighs in at 1 ½ pounds (!), so it's not convenient to carry in in a tote bag. But it is comprehensive and great for planning. But it's great to make notes from. Each regional chapter segregates info on Where to go, when to go, what to see and how to get around. The print is easy to read and so are the maps. There are nice sections on history. I don't use these guides for accommodations - and the listings are limited - but that's the only part of guides I don't use. I also like that the books are well bound.The book is primarily aimed at someone spending at least 21 days - in the country. Still there were enough sections for me to learn about the country.There is a detachable map bound in... 5/5 Steve Ramm "Steve Ramm "Anything Phonogra...

This review is from: Frommer's Costa Rica 2015 (Color Complete Guide) (Kindle Edition) It was useful, but not as much as the Fodor 2015 edition. As wholly expected and as it should be, there was redundant information between the two, but Fodor's often included more information about the same thing and the recommendations were more spot on for restaurants. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 20, 2015

    Best Guide for Planning a Trip to Costa Rica

    There are a lot of Costa Rica guides out there these days. The question is "which is the right one for me?" Of all the guides out there, this one you can't go wrong with for planning a trip to Costa Rica..I prefer this guide to the alternatives for the following reasons:1. The information in the guide is accurate, particularly the information on the hotels. If the guide says a place if good, it has been my experience that it is.2. There are plenty of choices and options listed for most tastes and budgets. The smaller hotels and restaurants in Costa Rica can save you money and frequently offer superior service compared to the larger resorts.3. The information is well organized by geographic region so if you settle on a region such as Guanacaste you can access the information.4.

    Short read, full of good info!

    Greg has offered a witty and very informative little book full of useful tidbits about life (or even visiting) in Costa Rica. He's really filled a great niche that hadn't otherwise been well-filled. Books like my own (Unraveling the Mysteries of Moving to Costa Rica) or his wife's (Costa Rica Chica) give great detailed accounts of people's move to CR, but Greg has taken a different tack and provided a down-and-dirty look at lots of the odd little details and experiences when you spend any time in Costa Rica -- from the mysteries of the lockers for your backpack at the grocery store (and the insight that took us a long time of living there to understand, that the baggers in many grocery stores are *not* actual employees and their *only* compensation is your tip!) to often shocking (to visitors) reality that in many bathrooms you can't put the toilet paper into the toilet, needing to put it in the provided trash receptacle instead.

    A Must-Read (and Keep) for Anyone Recently Arrived or Planning to Move to Costa Rica

    0 5/5 dustymar "dustymar" (Wilmington, DE United States) - See all my reviews This review is from: Living in and Visiting Costa Rica: 100 Tips, Tricks, Traps, and Facts (Kindle Edition) Wow! Such useful information packaged in a concise AND fun-to-read format! Greg tells us at the start that he wished he'd had such a guide to refer to before he moved to Costa Rica -- I second that! Like Greg, I spent about two years absorbing every stitch of information I could find about moving to and living in Costa Rica -- and many of the books I read were helpful -- but often so personalized that they didn't really relate to MY issues. What is different about this book is that Greg has spent the last year and a half ANSWERING every question that he had -- and that others have -- and he's now sharing it. I love his warm and friendly style as well -- it's like sitting around the dinner table chatting with him. It's also obvious that Greg has a deep love and respect for his adopted country and its country-persons (i.e. Ticos). Read this book BEFORE you partake on your adventure and then keep it as your main reference once you're in-country. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 16, 2015

    I'd feel comfortable handing a good friend this book and wishing them well on their journey.

    My friend and I were in the process of planning our trip to Costa Rica: I bought this book as I'd looked inside it and it seemed very well written and thorough; my friend started using this trip planning website, planapple, as it seemed convenient and easy to use. The website was convenient however it was just information through weblinks, and a way to share that information with your trip mates. One day we are sitting side-by-side at her computer, her adding link upon link of potential activities in the trip planner website, opening browser window one after another, with us both being overwhelmed by all the choices and options. I opened my book and read while I left my friend to try to narrow down our list of hundreds of possibilities of things to do, which involved looking through companies' websites, finding good reviews for these websites, finding methods to actually get to these activities.

    I usually buy Fromer’s or Lonely Planet travel books but this book caught my attention as it captured my interests exactly. I was planning on spending a month in Costa Rica in November/December 2014 and wanted a book that would be able to help me plan my itinerary from day trips to overnight trips.Once I bought the book I was not able to put it down, marking it with little sticky notes throughout and it travelled with me throughout Costa Rica. The author had excellent recommendations on places to see, things to do,It was extremely informative indicating “the best of,” explaining the driving in Costa Rica and the addresses, which prepared me beforehand.

    but those are easy to come by online

    0 5/5 Sam Martin - See all my reviews This review is from: Costa Rica: The Complete Guide, Eco-Adventures in Paradise (Paperback) My wife and I are planning an anniversary trip to Costa Rica and this book is by far most authentic guide we could have gotten. There aren't hotel reviews or listings, but those are easy to come by online. Plus, Kaiser has a number of them listed on his website.The best part about the book is the insider's view of what it's like to travel Costa Rica, talk to the locals, and see what the country has to offer -- both old and new. It's written from the view of someone who has lived in the place, not just visited to write a guidebook.Side note: I last traveled to Costa Rica in the mid 90s. Boy, has it changed. Kaiser has uncovered some gorgeous and adventurous new locations while also re-visiting the old haunts and giving them a new perspective. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 23, 2015
