A Costa Rica authority and expert travel writer, Christopher Baker brings sophisticated, authoritative guidance, and a strong, individual voice to this book. The guide includes numerous full-spread, mapped walking and driving tours, three-dimensional illustrations, and a large section of detailed visitor information, including the author's picks of the most unique and charming hotels and restaurants in all price ranges. Illustrated with 160 vivid photographs and 20 full-colour maps, "The National Geographic Traveller: Costa Rica" guides you through this incredibly varied and alluring country, one of Central America's premier destinations due to its stunning natural beauty. Written by award-winning author and Costa Rica expert Christopher Baker, the book starts with a detailed introduction to the country's history and culture - including a section on its unique flora and fauna. You are then taken through each of the country's regions: the capital city of San Jose; the lush Central Highlands; Guanacaste and its volcanoes; sea-fringed Nicoya; the Central Pacific; Zona Sur; the South Central and its cloud forests; the Northern Lowlands; and the Caribbean.
Special features and sidebars give comprehensive information on topics ranging from snakes and butterflies to volcanoes and rafting, while ten guided drives and walks take you into some of the country's most fascinating areas, including a stroll through San Jose's Otoya and Amon barrios, and a drive along the Inter-American Highway. A thorough Travelwise section provides recommendations for shopping, hotels, and restaurants in all price ranges.
