In about a week my husband and I are heading to Costa Rica. The fact that I just finished this book yesterday should probably tell you the state of our planning. We have plane tickets. We have a hotel for the first and the last nights. That’s it.
My husband visited Costa Rica about a month after we started dating, and he’s wanted to go back ever since. He asked that instead of my regular planning, I just get a guidebook and let us see what happens when we get there. So, I bought this one.
It’s fine. I don’t know how to review travel books – I think I should always wait until I get back, but by then I’ve moved on (I try to always review books within a day or two of finishing). This book seemed a little light though on what I think I need. Maybe it’s because it’s my first time going to a country I’m really unfamiliar with, so everything just bleeds together. I can’t tell any of the national parks apart, so I’m not really sure which ones I want to try to see.
But maybe that’s a good thing. We’ll pick a place on a map, find a bus that goes there, then open up the book and see what we’ll see.
