"This is a comprehensive bird-finding guide that contains a wealth of information on many sites. Costa Rica has one of the richest avifaunas in the world. There is no better place in the world to begin birding the tropics."--Victor Emanuel, Victor Emanuel Nature Tours
"Though I'm an old Panama hand, the appearance of this comprehensive birdfinding guide to Costa Rica's avian riches has me salivating to return to that wonderful country. Meticulously researched, Barrett Lawson's well-organized book describes the country's amazingly wide range of accommodations that are suitable, indeed ideal, for birding. Planning a birding trip to Costa Rica has now been made easy, and that should entice even more birders to get on the next plane bound for San José."--Robert S. Ridgely, World Land Trust-US, coauthor of The Birds of Ecuador

For those interested, my favorite spot was Tapanti National Park. I stayed in the quaint town of Orosi nearby. The advantage is that this area is close to San Jose, easily accessible by bus, extremely safe and quiet, and full of low mountain elevation birds.
Update: We just came back from our 20 day trip to five different Costa Rica locations! We had a wonderful time. We saw 188 species of birds, explored mountains, remote beaches (including Corcovado), and various rain forest habitats. I can definitively say that the reason everything went so smoothly was in part because of the detail, thoroughness and accuracy of this book. Even if you are going on a guided trip arranged for you by someone else, I would read and bring this book!
If I were to write a trip report from our 2 weeks in CR where we used this book to pick places to go it would be called "A Lifer A Day and Then Some"
