Overview

  • Full-color throughout, with a free full-color foldout map and a new wildlife chapter with photos. With Frommer's in hand, you'll experience the wonder of Costa Rica's amazing biodiversity, as we point out the best places to see hundreds of unique, colorful species of animals and plants.
  • Completely updated every year, Frommer's Costa Rica features gorgeous color photos of the lush rainforest and the spectacular beaches that await you.
  • Personally researched by a longtime resident, it's the only truly up-to-date guide that gives you such in-depth coverage of this fast-changing country, with recommended accommodations in every price category. This edition also features expanded coverage of the Central Valley, the Nicoya Peninsula, and Guanacaste.
  • Insightful commentary and opinionated reviews. You'll visit rugged wilderness preserves and sleepy beach towns, spectacular orchid gardens and mineral hot springs at the foot of a steaming volcano. There are adventures here to suit all ages and abilities: swooping from treetop platform to treetop platform on a canopy tour, taking a dip in a jungle swimming hole, spotting playful spider monkeys as you hike through lush foliage, windsurfing on Lake Arenal, or watching endangered sea turtles nest on the beach.

We found this guidebook an excellent source of information, whether it be for hotels, restaurants, or things to do. Updated information, clear and concise, and a bit more comprehensive than other source material for Costa Rica. Worth the cost. We purchased this for the Nook.

I am trying to plan my honeymoon to Costa Rica right now, and I am using a combination of this book and Trip Advisor. Often the two sources conflict, and I get the impression that this Frommer's guide is out of date. It highly recommends some places, which the reviews on Trip Advisor say are dated, formerly nice places. I am not sure that I trust the hotel reviews. On the other hand, it provides a good overview of the layout of the country and how to get around.
