Topographic maps of Costa Rica

See the Detailed Description and larger images

Sample of Costa Rica Topographic mapTopographic maps of Costa Rica all have the same origin (the Instituto Geográfico Nacional survey) and all share the same shortcoming... they are fairly old (ca. the early eighties). The mountains and most of the rivers in Costa Rica don't move much (one notable exception is the Rio Arenal which was dammed to create lake Arenal, and now runs into the Atlantic instead of the Pacific ocean) but, some of the towns do. Don't count on that little village still being there for resupply and don't be surprised if that little valley you planned on camping in is now the site of a rainforest resort. With that caveat, here's where you can get topo maps online.

You can also buy these maps directly from the Instituto Geográfico Nacional while you are in San José. See the detailed description for more information.
