4.0 out of 5 stars Great format, should have covered twice as many animals and birds., July 29, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
We chose this book as a single volume to take with us on a month long trip to Costa Rica. The drawings were accurate and helped us identify a lot of wildlife, however we often saw birds and mammals that were not listed in the book. It covered the most common wildlife from mammals to insects and would be a great guide for a short trip to Costa Rica. However, if you are planning an extended stay or planning on spending a lot of time looking for wildlife, I would suggest investing in individual books for different wildlife types: mammals, birds and reptiles, insects and butterflies, and even one for plants. We wished we had the extra information at our fingertips despite the extra weight and bulk. The overall format was great, we just wished for a more comprehensive guide.

5.0 out of 5 stars Indispensable, July 29, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
We just spent four weeks in Costa Rica, driving ourselves to nine different cities and back to the airport. We truly couldn't have done it without this map. The maps provided by the rental car company are inadequate, to say the least. Unlike in the states, few roads are named, and street signs are even less common and hard to find on the sides of buildings. The insets as well as the main map were accurate and easy to read. Having a waterproof map was essential as well since we saw rain almost every day and everything is very slow to dry out.
