    All You Need! This is one fabulous book

    We just returned from the trip of a lifetime to Costa Rica, and it wouldn’t have been half as good without the guidance in this book. And Costa Rica is really a place where you need good guidance. First off, the author led us to the BEST wildlife guides and eco-lodges. They made everything we saw really come alive and the people at the lodges were just the best. Many apparently knew the author, and in one place, when they saw us carrying the book, they gave us a free dessert with our meal! And the suggested itineraries at the front were invaluable. They helped us set up a logical trip so we were able to travel on our own (which we prefer) without feeling overwhelmed. We also loved the photos and maps (gave us a good idea what we were getting into). We actually ran into friends from home at a restaurant and they had another guidebook, Fodors I think, which they were throwing away because it kept leading them to places that were closed or not that great. That didn’t happen... 5/5 MilfordMom - See all my reviews This review is from: Frommer's Costa Rica 2016 (Color Complete Guide) (Paperback) We just returned from the trip of a lifetime to Costa Rica, and it wouldn’t have been half as good without the guidance in this book.

    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. (And if that last one made you go "ewww" then... 5/5 Arden Rembert Brink - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    I LOVED THIS BOOK!!!!!

    Having lived for three years in Costa Rica without having had the benefit of this book before moving, I can certainly vouch for the fact that it would have been incredibly useful. It's an easy read but chock full of incredibly practical information that informs the reader of much of the uniqueness that is Costa Rica. Now, reading from the standpoint of someone who knows that all Greg writes of is 100% true, I chuckled my way through it and, at times, laughed out loud at the absurdity of some things; the inefficiency of others; and the total inability of us Gringos to figure out why some things are the way they are. They just are. And Greg is so right--a good sense of humor is a "must-have" quality for anyone intending to spend much time in the land of pura vida. On the other hand, as Greg also points out, there are many positive lessons to be learned by us Gringos from experiencing Tico culture. I could go on but I'd rather you spend your time reading this book.

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

    5/5 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.

    Soothing Costa Rica vibe

    5/5 Melissa (Dallas, Texas) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Living Landscapes Costa Rica (Amazon 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. :) Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 26, 2014

    Great Handy Wildlife Reference

    5/5 Ray D. Krueger Koplin - See all my reviews This review is from: Costa Rica Wildlife Guide (Laminated Foldout Pocket Field Guide) (English and Spanish Edition) (Pamphlet) Thin, laminated, waterproof - this vividly colored guide is easy to fold up and slip in a pocket so you actually end up using it to identify some of the ~200 species (mammals, amphibians, reptiles, birds & butterflies) depicted. We've used this id card on a couple of trips and while the adults enjoyed it the kids were the ones constantly passing it around trying to figure out what that bird on the telephone wire was or planning which birds, butterflies and animals they would see in the next ecozone we were headed to.
