Costa Rica’s dry season runs from mid-November to April, making this one of the best times to travel around the country

Sloths, active volcanoes, hot springs, and howler monkeys – Costa Rica holidays are all about nature. Costa Rica’s dry season runs from mid-November to April, making this one of the best times to travel around the country. It is, however, one of the most expensive times to visit so, if you don’t mind a bit of rain, it’s also worth considering the ‘green season’ in May, June and September. For prime turtle nesting in Tortuguero, plan your holiday for between July and October. Christopher Columbus christened Costa Rica as the Rich Coast way back in 1502 and, to be honest, it hasn’t stopped showing off its wealth since.

This book is the annual effort by the staff and contributors of Central America´s leading English-language newspaper to track down up-to-date, comprehensive and intriguing information about Costa Rica, including the idiosyncracies and eccentricities of living and traveling. Included are profiles of many of the national parks, rainforests, beaches, volcanoes and other tourism locations.

This book is not worth the money as you are paying for ads that should be provided through local travel agencies. I found very little useful information about traveling and maps. Therefore, I returned the book.

As a former vacationer and current resident of Costa Rica, I would like to state that this guide is one of the best on the market. Firstly, it is updated every single year. That makes it always at least as accurate as any other guide, and generally more accurate than most, because it is more timely.
Secondly, it is objective and accurate. It is written by the writers at The Tico Times, so the guide has decades of journalistic integrity behind it. This same journalistic background accounts for the accuracy of the guide.
Finally, it is concise. They literally visit every single tourism related business in Costa Rica, and then pack all of this information into only 288 pages. That's what you call jam-packed with information! It has all the information you need and nothing extra. The first sections of General Information, Tiquicia, and Culture will orient you towards the "Tico" culture and help you make your way around, at the same time helping you to avoid treading on any toes. Then, no matter where you are, you will find the guide extremely helpful as to accomodations (quality and pricing), places to eat (type of cuisine and pricing) and also what to see.
In conclusion, I would just like to mention that I purchase this guide every year. I've been living here for 8 years and I always find the original Exploring Costa Rica to be useful all year long. I use it for business purposes; to find places to stay in a new area; to find new places in an old area; and even to recommend places to stay to newcomers and acquaintances. There are many guide books on the market, some good and some not so good, but you won't find a better one at a better price.

This book is very similiar to the AAA guidebooks available in the US for US states.
It has an alright section describing the Tico culture and food and such, but nothing that couldn't be gleaned from another guidebook. It has a lot of listings of hotels and restaurants for the entire country, but like the AAA book has no objective comments (everything is good). The descriptions of the hotels are about one or two sentences long and are not useful in making a decision on where to stay.
This book does have good color photos and pretty good regional maps (for trip planning, not detailed enough for driving).
I could see this book being useful for someone on the run and just looking for ANY hotel in a town at 6:00 p.m., but it isn't very useful for trip planning.
The Frommer's guidebook is much, much more useful.

I am so grateful to the Editor and writers of "Exploring Costa Rica 2001". My husband and I have just returned from a two week stay in this beautiful country and couldn't imagine our vacation without the knowledge of this wonderful guide. Each city is clearly articled with attractions, restraunts and safety tips. The information such as what type of food is served in the restraunts mentioned and what each hotels accomodations include is especially helpful in planning a vacation from another country. I loved the fact that at the beginning of the day we could decide where we wanted to explore then consult the guide for what to do there. A great example is the "Dreamers House" in the Orosi Valley. The pictures in the guide are beautiful and creatively choosen. The captions under the lead picture of every section were so much fun to read. For two people who speak minimal spanish (but try hard) wewould have been lost with out this exceptional bible...I mean guide to Costa Rica. It was like we had a personal tour guide right in the car with us! Thank you Tico Times for your great efforts.

The Tico Times sets the standard for Costa Rican journalism, particularly in the areas of ecology and social reporting. As a permanent resident of Costa Rica, I always keep a copy of the latest Exploring Costa Rica handy. It's great for scouting out vacation spots, for getting ready when guests from overseas come in and for finding about the sights to see in a particular town. Unlike most guide books, it is updated yearly so the information is always current.
The only real flaw is that they don't dedicate much space to describing the different towns and areas, only brief thumbnail sketches. Also, each business is described only briefly. On the other hand the data on prices, contact info and location of hotels and restaurants is invaluable.
