One of TWO Frommer Guides on Costa Rica- Lighter and easy to pack. 2 Feb. 2015
By Steve Ramm - Published on
Format: Paperback
In anticipation of a cruise which I booked which was stopping in Puerto Limon Costa Rica, I got this new travel guide from the always - user-friendly Frommer's Guide series. (I've been using Frommer's Guides for over 40 years.) There are actually TWO different CR guides from Frommer's. The more comprehensive guide - which I also reviewed today on Amazon - weighs in at 1 ½ pounds (!), so it's not convenient to carry in in a tote bag. This one is thinner and much lighter - the paper is thinner - and may better serve your purpose if only going to a few areas for a short stay. Each regional chapter segregates info on Where to go, when to go, what to see and how to get around. The print is easy to read and so are the maps. There are nice sections on history. I don't use these guides for accommodations - and the listings are limited - but that's the only part of guides I don't use. I also like that the books are well bound.

Like the heavier book, there is a detachable map bound in the back - a nice touch - and a few other maps. Because of weight, this is an easy book to take with you.

The book is primarily aimed at someone spending at least seven days - in the country. Still there were enough sections for me to learn about the country.
Though I was limited on my trip to Costa Rica this time, I did find the book helpful and gained some historical and social history background and can highly recommend it - especially if you are planning a longer visit there.

I hope you found this review both informative and helpful.

Okay but left much to be desired 24 April 2015
By Frank Cullen - Published on
Format: Paperback
A workmanlike report with somew useful basics, but overall an unimaginative effort. Reads as if it were written for a 1950s American family. Very little about the arts of Costa Rica. Reviews of eateries offer no information about vegan/vegetarian diners. Nothing for disable travellers or GLBT visitors. Lonely Planet guidebook is of more use to contemporary travelers. It didn't fit our family's wants, but it is still useful.

I prefer a travel to guide that has a lot of pictues especially when travel to a place I have never been before. This one has NONE. I received the Lonely Planet 2015 travel guide as gift and it is much better. I wish I hadn't already bought this one for myself.
