You are a great resource and I can only guess how many people you have given excellent advice to about Costa Rica. I hope your website continues to do well! I checked out your “No cost things you can do to keep Costa-Rica-Guide.com alive” page and I’d like to submit writings and/or pictures upon my return. I will also make all further Amazon and Barnes & Noble purchases through your website. It’s the least I can do! Mil gracias,

Brilliant. Awesome cartography by the way. Practically art. When I first opened the map I was trying to figure out by what people meant by a waterproof map. I was going to have my wife laminate the map when I noticed the map wasn't really wearing thin in the creases like a typical map. Then I realized that it really is a plastic map, not just laminated. Brilliant. Now I just have to figure the best places to hike and ride next month.

Your Costa Rica Map is FANTASTIC!!!
I am a Tourism Teacher avid adventure traveler. I am most impressed with your new Costa Rica map that just arrived. It is so thoroughly researched and organized. It gives an excellent overview of the national parks, preserves and other local highlights at a glance.

Just got back from 2 weeks in Costa Rica. Your map was GREAT! It got doused by a leaky waterbottle before we even got off the plane in San Jose, and it still stayed together for the whole trip. It totally saved us in San Jose proper, and was very easy to follow for our cruise to Quepos, then up to La Cruz. Your website was extremely helpful in planning our trip. Everything you had to say about the roads and the drivers was absolutely true. Thanks a lot! Pura vida,

 We just got back from Costa Rica. We had 4 sets of maps in our car and yours was our main map. My wife and I were struck by the major inconsistencies between maps, especially the free ones like from Europcar rental car. We had others, but yours is much more accurate.
Your map has a more emphatic classification of road types (major vs. minor vs. dirt). This is welcome and very helpful.
Thanks for the great maps.

The CR-map has arrived here on Friday and we are now busy studying its plentiful geographical information. So far this map gives better details than any other CR map we have seen.
Thank you so much.
