I live in Costa Rica and can attest to the value of this book. Yes, other books are better factually but this book captures the vibe and Tico mentality perfectly. Worthwhile for anyone looking to spend extended time in Costa Rica.
Not Complete as We Thought
This guide seems to be far too subjective rather than factual . My husband and I found it to be incomplete in several key areas. It is not as detailed as several of the other guides on the subject. We have read them all since we live in Costa Rica.
