Makes me want to book a flight today,
This review is from: Fodor's Costa Rica 2010 (Full-color Travel Guide) (Paperback)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I'm used to Fordor concentrating on cities and was pleasantly surprised to find that a good portion of this book focuses on Costa Rica's national parks. There's pretty heavy emphasis on outdoor activities but not the ultra strenuous kind. Well, surfing is there and there's a brief mention of off road bicycling but the bulk of the book is strongly geared towards those of us who are interested in the beauty of this country.
The photos are wonderful and add a lot to the brief natural history sections. Descriptions of location along with short bits about the history and ecology are included. It's even a bit of a nature guide, though that part is a bit token. The included full size map isn't token at all, but quite complete. I'm a bit sorry that I've already booked this winter's vacation to Mexico, though I'm sure I'll have a great time.
