I got your map... WOW!!! Seriously, this is a cool map! I love the material, and from what I saw, it is VERY detailed. In fact, you are the only map I have seen of Costa Rica that has the road between San Pablo de Turrubares and Orotina! All the other maps show no road, while it is a great road in real life!
Pura vida,
—Neta T., Owner-La Finca Que Ama, San Pablo de Turrubares, Costa Rica

Because of the material used, it always folds back correctly unlike paper maps. The map can even be used as a momentary rain shield during one of the many unpredictable rain showers that can come at any time in Costa Rica. Having seen many Costa Rica maps, this one in my opinion is the best one. Great use of detail, color and icons.

[I received] your map yesterday. It is truly superb! If you would like to create a 'special' of some kind, I would be happy to recommend this map in my newsletter. It is EXCEPTIONALLY good.

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 José, and it still stayed together for the whole trip. It totally saved us in San José 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,
—Diane, Boulder CO

This is cool now my clients finally have a detailed map to find the place!

I want you to know how great the map is that we bought from you. We went off into the boonies but felt as if we knew where we were from the detailed map.

Besides current road quality and surface status Krueger-Koplin has included detailed listings and locations of beaches, parks, reserves and refuges, butterfly gardens, canopy tours, fresh water fishing locales, surfing and scuba schools and more. How many times have you found yourself trying to plot all these locations on a map from your guidebook? This already has it done for you. As far as I know no other Costa Rica map goes this far.

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.

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.

Do you publish maps for any other countries? You certainly should. A map format like yours is a real gem!...so helpful for amenities and attractions along the way… Your format is so unique, it should be copyrighted.
—Keep up the great work!
