4.0 out of 5 stars Good info but limited accommodation 11 Jan 2013
Format:Paperback
This is a typically useful LP in the new format. As easy to use as ever. Lacks some detail in terms of accommodation choices and doesn't really point out how difficult getting around Costa Rica seems to be.

1.0 out of 5 stars Rubbish, pointless, left it in Costa Rica 26 Mar 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book was no help to me at all, each section had a very basic map and then after detailed the places to see etc but with no map reference? How exactly you are meant to find the places I have no idea, it was hard to use. On a backpackers perspective, I'd suggest buying something more generic.
