Are You Ready to Travel Smart?
If you'd like to get the most out of your dollar and your trip, this is the guide for you. I put a fresh spin on budget travel, showing you how to see the best for less and how to see it in a more authentic way-the way the locals do.
The guide promises travelers a first-class trip on a third-class budget, with experiences that bring travelers closer to Costa Rican culture—language and cooking classes, volunteering to protect sea turtles during nesting season, and more.
Destinations will include the Monteverde Cloud Forest, the Guanacaste beaches, Tortuguero, Manuel Antonio National Park, and the thriving capital city of San José.
An illustrated guide to Costa Rica’s wildlife as well as coverage of the country’s history, culture, food, and drink.
