NEW FULL-COLOR GUIDE!

Completely updated every year, Frommer's Costa Rica features gorgeous color photos of the lush rain forest, the amazing array of wildlife, 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.

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.

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. You'll even get a color fold-out map!

    Wonderful

    The Frommer's Costa Rica 2010 book was so helpful for planning my trip. Frommer's had great accommodations recommendations for all budget types (some, like Foder's, did not have good low price options). There were wonderful restaurant reviews, too. Another feature that I really appreciated was that Frommer's had sections for each town telling you how to get there by car, bus, ferry / boat, or plane. As my party traveled primarily by public transportation this information was invaluable! Frommer's 2010 gave the travel time, where the bus stops were, what to expect on the ride and so on. The pictures and illustrations were helpful and detailed and the tour and taxi information included was spot on! Overall, the best Costa Rica travel book I found--and I looked at Fodor's, National Geographic, Time Out and a couple others. Highly recommend it!
