    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. They've freshened up a lot of descriptions, removed... 5/5 Ray D.

    Outstanding traveling companion

    0 5/5 Erik Dolson (Central Oregon, USA) - See all my reviews, December 16, 2014

    Another fine LP planet book - covers the whole country - a bit heavy to carry

    In anticipation of a cruise which I booked which was stopping in Puerto Limon, I got this new Lonely Planet book. I've always found the LP series to be first rate. If there is one "issue" with this book it is that it is heavy - almost a pound and is bulky. I'm not deducting any stars but making you aware. 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 no pull-out maps so you might want to either copy them or just tear out the ones you need. There are nice sections on history and even photos identifying wildlife you will see.. I don't use these guides for accommodations - and the listings are limited - but that's the only part of LP guides I don't use. I also like that the books are well bound. Costa Rica is a BIG country and most visitors only go to one part, so there will - of course - be sections that are not relevant to your trip. But... 4/5 Steve Ramm "Steve Ramm "Anything Phonogra...

    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...

    Useful, but not as much as Fodor's 2015 CR Guide

    0 4/5 F KEITH BUMGARNER - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) 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

    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

    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.
