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,

What a nice site you offer about Costa Rica. Thank you. I don't see how you are gaining income from this info. It appears that you are just doing it to offer info gratis to the general public. It's a very informative site. Do you have a fee for answering questions about Costa Rica? [No, we don't.]

I went to Costa Rica with two maps in hand and hopes of backbacking around the Pacific Coast. Like Vermont, Costa Rica can be rather wet. Within two days of hiking, the first map was torn and soggy. The second map was like it was out of the box. I can't stress the importance and practicality of a waterproof map enough. I found this one to be accurate, detailed and above all, higher quality than I've ever experienced. It was a pleasure to order from Toucan guides as well and I've purchased an additional map for my brother.
