Best for those looking purely for activity/tour suggestions 11 décembre 2013
Par Ryan Winkleman - Publié sur
Format: Broché Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
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 are looking for location-specific activity suggestions. If you're looking for restaurants, hotels, etc. then I'd suggest a traditional travel guide.

I expected more from National Geographic 31 décembre 2013
Par Dr D - Publié sur
Format: Broché Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
Costa Rica is such a beautiful interesting place, it should be easy to create a top notch travel guide but National Geographic missed the mark here in my opinion. While the book is a nice size for travel, a lot of pages were wasted on things that are more appropriate to an encyclopedia than a travel guide such as pages on what volcanoes are and how they are formed. Also, when one thinks of National Geographic, one thinks you are going to have better more local more up-close-and personal photographs of everything including hard to reach or out of the way places, but in the 4th edition travel guide of Costa Rica, they often use drawings/illustrations instead such as pages 180-181 showing animals in their natural habitat in the Lowland Rain Forest. It does have a lot of useful information though so it is better than nothing but really...... National Geographic, come on, live up to your standards set over the years in photography.

Very good guide to Costa Rica 8 novembre 2013
Par HardyBoy64 - Publié sur
Format: Broché Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
I really enjoyed the glossy pictures of this guide and I found the information to be concise and accurate (according to what I have studied about Costa Rica). There is heavy emphasis on the flora and fauna of this country, which may not be to your liking. However, Costa Rica as a nation has built up an important eco-tourism business with intense conservation efforts and by definition, a guide about Costa Rica would have to put this element at the forefront. This is a very good guide in my opinion.

Great for Planning 17 janvier 2014
Par DJLA531 - Publié sur
Format: Broché Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
I'll admit it - I'm a Lonely Planet die-hard. I usually travel pretty cheaply and LP always offers the biggest bang for your buck as far as the nitty gritty of what hotels to book and what restaurants will work within your budget. What I do prefer from guide books like this one from National Geographic is the country overview approach with lots of photos. This type of book is more geared towards setting up your itinerary and getting a feel for the country before you go. Now I have lots of ideas of what to do while I am in Costa Rica, but when I make my trip, I'll likely leave this at home and bring my LP.

Helpful for planning a trip and knowing what to see. 27 mars 2014
Par Ramesh Gopal - Publié sur
Format: Broché Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
This book was very helpful in planning a trip. It provides a list of high priority places to visit on the first few pages. The country is divided according to geographical sections which are dealt with in different chapters. At the end there is a section on accommodations and restaurants. The pictures are very nice. I wonder how up to date the information is, however. I visited the Irazu volcano because of the picture showing a colorful pool in the crater. When I got there I was informed that the pool had dried up a long time ago. The JW Marriott at which I stayed is not listed among the accommodations. Also, hotels and restaurants are not listed separately. The idea seems to be that only restaurants that are part of hotels should be included. Apart from these criticisms, it is a useful book.
