Présentation de l'éditeur

Award-winning author and Costa Rica expert Christopher Baker guides you through this incredibly varied and alluring country, one of Central America's premier ecotourist destinations. Illustrated with 120 vivid photographs and 20 full-color maps, the book starts with a detailed introduction to the country's history and culture--including a section on its unique flora and fauna. You are then guided through each of the country's regions: the capital city of San Jose; the lush Central Highlands; Guanacaste and its volcanoes; sea-fringed Nicoya; the Central Pacific; Zona Sur; the South Central and its cloud forests; the Northern Lowlands; and the Caribbean. Special features give comprehensive information on topics ranging from snakes and butterflies to volcanoes and rafting, while ten guided drives and walks take you into some of the country's most fascinating areas, including a stroll through San Jose's Otoya and Amon barrios and a drive along the Inter-American Highway. Sidebars on experiential travel abound, revealing how to save macaws, learn Spanish, and best enjoy the coffee culture.

HASH(0x95040954) étoiles sur 5 Best for those looking purely for activity/tour suggestions 11 décembre 2013
Par Ryan Winkleman - Publié sur Amazon.com
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.

HASH(0x95048204) étoiles sur 5 Great for Planning 17 janvier 2014

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.

HASH(0x9503ead4) étoiles sur 5 Very good guide to Costa Rica 8 novembre 2013
Par HardyBoy64 - Publié sur Amazon.com
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.

HASH(0x9504b78c) étoiles sur 5 Helpful for planning a trip and knowing what to see. 27 mars 2014
Par Ramesh Gopal - Publié sur Amazon.com
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.

HASH(0x9504e348) étoiles sur 5 Pretty, but Light on Information 21 novembre 2013
Par choiceweb0pen0 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
This is a beautiful book with many full-color photographs and maps, with lots of photos of plants and wildlife. In short, what anyone would expect from National Geographic. While it does offer some piratical advice, but I would hesitate to use this as my only reference or resource. If I had to take just one travel book, I would more likely go with the latest Lonely Planet Costa Rica that may have less pictures, but has more information and advice especially when it comes to accommodation and restaurants.
