A wealth of knowledge, from experience

I am so glad that I listened to this book before my first trip to Costa Rica. The author shared practical, useful information about the country, their customs and practices. The books gives you everyday information that can be applied to make your trip safe, relaxed and comfortable. Very informative. I took lot's of notes but will most likely buy the book for reference before we go.

listen to before your first visit to Costa Rica

I've been to Costa Rica twice a total of four and a half weeks out together and I learned whole lot from this 60 Minute audio! I will listen to it again before my third time there just to not miss anything. So good!

Basic

A couple of helpful tips but US centric. Slightly dull, over cautious approach to travel, I think I took 2 or 3 tips away from this book.
