The Best

Toucan Guides Costa Rica MapToucan Guides Waterproof Travel Map—After more than a decade of travel around Costa Rica we were frustrated with out of date low quality maps that showed a quarter of the roads and dissolved in the rain so we created the Toucan Guides Waterproof Travel Map. Order $9.95, 2005, ISBN: 0976373300—Details


The Good

BBnV Costa Rica MapBernston & Berston Verlag—Not a bad choice if you're sticking to the main roads.  Printed on coated paper for water resistance. Order $10.95, 2005, ISBN: 3866095104—Details




National Geographic Costa Rica mapNational Geographic Adventure Map—As you'd expect the folks at National Geographic have done an excellent job with the geography, unfortunately the title "Adventure Map" is something of a misnomer and many people also find the format with half the country on each side of the map quite annoying. Order  $9.95, 2004, ISBN 1566951755—Details



The Rest

Insight Costa Rica MapInsight Fleximap Plus Travel Information—is the cheapest map of Costa Rica you can buy and there are a lot of good reasons for that. $7.95, 2004, ISBN: 9814137685—Details



ITMB Costa Rica MapITMB Costa Rica—Although the copyright is just two years old (2004), it appears that this is simply a reprint date, and the map has not been updated for significantly longer. $9.95, 2004, ISBN: 1553411803—Details



The map you get for free from your rental car agency.  In most cases you get what you pay for, sometimes a little more and they aren't too bad as long as you don't leave the main highways and don't get the map wet.  If you're going to rely on the map in the glove box (assuming there is one) you may also want to download and print the Toucan Guides free map of Costa Rica.  It only has the main routes, but at least they're current.

Tico Trivia
Traditional palm wine is fermented from the sugar and nutrient laden fluid intended for the flowers and fruit of Coyol palms (Acrocomia vinifera).  The sap is collected in a depression left by cutting out the growing shoot at the top of the tree.
