Braulio Carrillo National Park, Rara Avis Reserve, La Selva &
Sarapiqui, Tortuguero National Park, Barra Colorado &
Parismina, Puerto Limon, Cahuita, Puerto Viejo - these are a few of
the places to see along the Caribbean Coast. This guide tells you
everything you need to know. Here are some review of the full guide
from which this one is taken: Despite the title, the book is not
all rafting, rappelling and rainforests. A full 117 pages of the
386-page volume are introductory and background material covering
history, culture, nature and, of course, all the nuts-and-bolts
travel essentials. Useful, descriptive listings of hotels,
restaurants, nightlife, shopping and, true to the title,
adventure-travel options fill the remaining two-thirds of the
guide. But if your adventure tastes lean toward shopping in the
artisan town of Sarchi rather than scaling Chirripo you'll find
recommendations too. Peppered throughout the text are quotes from
literature, music and popular sayings, from everyone from Gilbert
and Sullivan to Martin Luther King and The Beach Boys. All fit the
text, and you'll be excused from breaking away from the travel
information and thumbing through to see who the Conords will quote
next. The book recommends locking your passport in your hotel safe
and, when you go out, carrying a photocopy that you've made before
you leave home. That advice generates much debate in travel
circles, a question of balancing authorities' insistence on seeing
the original document with the risk of losing it. In any case, a
copy made before departure without that all-important entry stamp
into the country would never suffice. But these matters are small
and forgivable in a guide packed with such solid information. --
Tico Times. I am here in Costa Rica in an internet cafe and had to
take the time to tell everyone what a good book this is. It really
gave us everything we needed to plan our trip and now that we are
here, we use it to find just about everything. If you have not
visited Costa Rica yet, get a copy of this book and come on down --
it is fabulous. PURA VIDA -- Ramon Vallarino. My husband and I just
spent our honeymoon in Costa Rica and believe it or not, found this
Adventure Guide to be the best resource for exciting things to do
and see. It was also accurate for finding hotels that had that
little bit of extra ambiance we wanted for romance. We had used
Lonely Planet guidebooks on other trips but found this guidebook to
be much better. It's easy to use, has lovely photographs, and for
rainy nights it made good armchair reading. I heartily recommend
the Adventure Guide for a wonderful vacation in Costa Rica. --
Amazon customer. My fiancee and I went to Costa Rica and wanted to
get away from everything. This book led us to Uvita de Osa (not
even mentioned in other books). This book gave us great local
information and helped us plan our vacation from start to finish."
