It’s a place where rainforest meets white sandy beach, where unusual critters large and small roam the land, sea and air — a raw, rugged piece of this Earth with mountains and volcanoes.
So it’s no surprise Costa Rica has become a tourist mecca for eco-adventure.
Its wonders, beauty and opportunities this country offers the world is now the focus of a new book, Costa Rica: The Complete Guide ($25.95, Destination Press) by award-winning travel writer and photographer James Kaiser, now available in book stores and online.
Kaiser’s 495-page guide offers just about everything you need to know about this Central American gem that borders Nicaragua to the north and Panama to the south.
Whether you’re headed to Costa Rica for a relaxing, pampered stay at an all-inclusive hotel or seeking an adventure of a lifetime, Kaiser’s book has something for everyone.
It’s well-organized with an introduction that includes the ‘best of’ in Costa Rica, (popular beaches, wildlife destinations, waterfalls), practical advice (diseases, money, hotels, restaurants and transportation), adventures (canoeing, hiking, canopy tours, scuba and snorkelling and much more), culture (coffee, legends, festivals, food), and loads of history about the people, wildlife and land.
One of the best things about this book is the use of photographs which provide a visual record of its contents, such as the indigenous fruits, wildlife, native foods, the jaw-dropping scenery found in the different regions of the country and more.
There are also helpful maps and details about how to get around the various regions.
