Costa Rica is much more than a verdant paradise. It's a land of diverse landscapes and cultures. This collection of regional guides reveals unknown facets of Costa Rica and helps travelers understand what makes this country so unique. In this volume we introduce Guanacaste, a place of world-renowned surf spots and great natural beauty. It is a country within a country, with its own distinct climate, culture, and identity. The cradle of the nation's folkloric traditions, it is also the place that witnessed the rebirth of the last tract of tropical dry forest in the Americas. Includes a colorful fold-out map of key tourist destinations.
