    Surprisingly Lightweight

    0 5/5 Amazon Customer "elgordo42" (Rural WA, USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Waterproof Travel Map Of Costa Rica (Map) This is a great map, big enough to include lots of detail. The waterproof feature does not make it a plastic brick, as I expected! Appears to be a nice medium weight coated paper. [see below]EDIT: From the map maker himself, "Thanks for the great review and we're glad you liked the map!...It's actually printed on a synthetic medium developed for maps where waterproof, lightweight and tough are the main desirable characteristics...much tougher than coated paper and totally impermeable to water." 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 21, 2013

    Quality Guide to CR

    0 5/5 Robert Whitney "Roberto" (Deltona, Florida USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: DK Eyewitness Travel Guide: Costa Rica (Paperback) DK always produces quality Guides. I have always valued their Backpacking Guides and now this beautiful Guide to Costa Rica. I have found this guide to be the most informative and useful of the guides I have used. It is my 1st choice by far! It may not go into the depth of some other Guides about a specific place, like Frommers or Fodor or the nitty gritty of off the beaten trail like Lonely Planet and others, but it gives you a wonderful overview of the country and the full color pictures jump out at you. They give you a taste of what to expect, that just words can not. The 3D drawings of places in San Jose and the Central valley are really most helpful in understanding what you will be seeing and experiencing. This guide introduces you to the essence of this beautiful country. I found the maps give you a great sense of where things are. Be sure to check out this guide before making your final selection of a Costa Rica Guide. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 19, 2012

    Funny, even hilarious, but needs copyediting

    0 3/5 Amazon Customer - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Happier Than A Billionaire: Quitting My Job, Moving to Costa Rica, and Living the Zero Hour Work Week (Kindle Edition) I enjoyed most of the stories in the book and the author does a great job at the buildup to the move. She makes Costa Rica sound like a wonderful place and details her transition from wigged out city dweller to laid back jungle cat with humor, both at her own expense as well as her husband's. The first half of the book is much stronger than the second half, and some of the vignettes seem like they came directly from a first draft rather than getting the polish they need.Sadly, the usage errors in the text (prospective vs. perspective, taught vs. taut, etc) were a big distraction for this reader. It's too bad the book didn't get more editorial attention -- it really deserves a good couple of rounds with the red pen. And by deserves, I mean that in the nicest way. I have spent money on flawless books that weren't nearly as good (or funny) as this one was. A star and a half deducted for the errors. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , October 17, 2011

    Loved this Book

    0 5/5 Tom D. - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Happier Than A Billionaire: Quitting My Job, Moving to Costa Rica, and Living the Zero Hour Work Week (Kindle Edition) I just finished reading this book on my Kindle and loved it. It had me laughing out loud, in fact my wife kept looking at me like I had lost my mind! She will read it next, than I can throw barbs at her. This book was funny, sarcastic, insightful and just downright a pleasure to read. Her style of writing is light and fun, but also very insightful into what her daily life is like living in Costa Rica. I can't wait to read her next book about her continuing adventures in this exotic land. I highly recommend this book !! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 22, 2011

    Living vicariously through Nadine and her Vin Diesel

    I started and finished reading this book in one day. The author's style of writing made the book a real delight to read. Her ability to mix personal stories with factualvinformation about the trials and joys of her life changing decision is excellent. I found myself laughing out loud at many points and marveling at the courage this couple showed at others by simply dropping everything and starting a new life in Costa Rica. Having to navigate a foreign country where you don't speakvthe language has got to be a challenge but the author makes it seem like the most practical and joyous experience. Imagining her husband going through a game of charades to get his point across still makes me laugh.I think anyone who is caught invthe rat race and fed up with simply going through the motions of waking up, going to a job that is not what you really want to be doing, fighting the commute home just so you can go to bed and do it all again will find themselves living vicariously... 5/5 Lvatty "lvatty" - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    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
