--Purchased as a keepsake book for a couple going to Costa Rica for the first time. It contains beautiful pictures with helpful information for all parts of Costa Rica--the country and the wildlife. This is a lovely reminder of a trip that was taken, one that is being planned for the first time, or a return trip.

Beautiful Costa Rica is captured well in this book. It is a large hard cover and cannot be packed easily in a suitcase. It does however teach you about the wildlife, fauna and beauty of Costa Rica. Definitely recommend this book!

This is a great little book - we keep it in our guest bedroom and everyone seems to love it! Gets you in the mood to go out exploring this beautiful country instead of just gawking at the beach - LOL!!!

We saw this book in Costa Rica but waited to get a better deal on Amazon when we returned home. We LOVE it! It covers all of the major regions, their geography, climates, flora and fauna. The photos are stunning. It is a wonderful memory book and we keep it on our coffee table. We love to revisit the areas we saw, learn more about them, and enjoy the fabulous photos of the birds, animals and frogs we'd seen.
