    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. For those planning to go with no specific destination, this guide offers suggested itineraries and best experiences (birding, family... 5/5 z - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Excellent overview, better for the library than on the ground, but great either way

    I recently recommended the current version of this fine guide to a friend, and she returned with glowing reports. All of the comments from my original Review apply to this edition. in her opinion. So, unchanged except for a few updates, my original Review:A good friend used this fine guide during an eight day tour of Costa Rica in the fall of 2011, and I used it during three stops during a cruise along the coast line a couple of weeks later. The guide made wonderful reading for both of us before the trips, both of which had set itineraries with very few optional excursions; the pictures and the excellent text whetted the appetite and gave us leads on questions to ask our guides while we were actually in the country.As always with the Eyewitness series, the binding, the paper and the photographs were excellent.

    pretty photos

    0 4/5 Jen (NY, NY) - See all my reviews This review is from: DK Eyewitness Travel Guide: Costa Rica (Paperback) Gorgeous book with amazing photographs. Lovely for pre-trip planning, but I wouldn't necessarily take it with me on a trip for day-to-day activity advice. (Lonely Planet or Frommer's would be better on that front.) This book gives you a fantastic idea of what to expect in CR and shows the beauty of the country! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 22, 2014

    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.

    Informative and Well Thought-Out

    As someone who has visited Costa Rica and been to some of the locations discussed in this guide, I found the authors' descriptions to be very accurate. It contained a lot of useful information and takes into consideration some very important things that the first time visitor may not think of.The transportation guide is a great addition with tips on travel and especially the typical road conditions in certain areas. There are many roads that can be all but impassable without 4 wheel drive and I love the fact that they point these types of things out as you travel from point to point along your itinerary.I'll be sure to use this book on my next trip. I love to explore new places, but I hate the planning. With the basic itineraries laid out for you, the optimal amount of time can be spent in each location and then you can move on to somewhere new and exciting without worrying that you missed something.I'm not one to st sit around on vacation and the... 5/5 Jonathan Harris - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    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
