Full colour Costa Rica.
on 15 March 2012
Nice full colour guide, divided by geographical region and with additional sections on 'Top 25 experiences', 'Top Itineraries', 'Shopping', 'Culture', 'Activities', 'Family Travel, 'Food and Drink', 'History' and 'Getting Around'
The layout is clear, with headings colour-coded for each region (e.g green in the north, pink on the caribbean coast), and a reasonably sized font, though quite a lot of weird symbols are used that weren't instantly obvious to me (the scary-looking radioactive symbol actually means 'air conditioning'!).
Prices are given for hotels and restaurants, and there's a glossary of common Spanish terms. Also, I liked the fact that essential information like emergency telephone numbers are on the inside of the cover to be found quickly and easily.
Good size and weight, combined with loads of information makes this book ideal for actually taking on a trip, not just using in the planning stages.
