Cancun, Cozumel & the Riviera Maya alive! by Bruce W Conord( Book )

10 editions published between 2001 and 2011 in English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What a joy after reading some of the other guides to Cancun! This book covers almost everything, and is obviously written by someone with an intimate familiarity with the region. It offers helpful hints on each page, rather than just pointing out lists of places to visit (although it does this also). The Mexican to U.S. clothing size conversion chart is particularly helpful. The book dedicates 12 pages to shopping in Cancun, a topic restricted to 3/4 page in the other guidebook I purchased at the same time (and sent back). The coverage of places to stay, places to eat, and what to do is very o

"Frogs in neon blue, yellow and orange serenade rainforest visitors. Tigers roam the verdant jungles. Multicolored tropical fish swim in azure-blue waters. There's no doubt that Costa Rica's wildlife is a nature lover's delight and a feast for photographers. But while the flora and fauna are what draw many tourists to the country, increasingly, people come to explore the culture, the people and their history." "Join Costa Rica experts Bruce and June Conord as they lead the way in a country they love. With an eye toward sustainable tourism options and cultural delights, this book takes in one fascinating place after another, from the Osa Peninsula's Puerto Jimenez in the south to beautiful Lake Arenal up north. Each is covered in depth, with hundreds of hotel and restaurant reviews - from five-star resorts to treehouses in the jungle and fine dining options to beachside fish shacks - and plenty of activities to suit all kinds of travelers. In bustling San Jose, take the historic walking tour, wander the city's flower gardens or sign up for a language lesson at a local school. Away from its towns and cities, Costa Rica offers a staggering number of parks and preserves, including Monte Verde Cloud Forest and Tortuguero and Manuel Antonio national parks. Take a rainforest canopy tour, ride the whitewater rivers or trek in search of the elusive quetzal, the colorful native bird that is an enduring symbol of freedom." "Costa Rica Adventure Guide gives all the information you need to make your vacation a success. Invaluable travel tips address health issues, Internet access, gay and lesbian travel, petty crime concerns, transportation, money matters and much more. Book jacket."--BOOK JACKET

Following are a few reviews of the full guide: "I am here in Costa Rica in an internet cafe and had to take the time to tell everyone what a good book this is. It really gave us everything we needed to plan our trip and now that we are here, we use it to find just about everything. If you have not visited Costa Rica yet, get a copy of this book and come on down -- it is fabulous."--PURA VIDA! "My husband and I just spent our honeymoon in Costa Rica and believe it or not, found this Adventure Guide to be the best resource for exciting things to do and see. It was also accurate for finding hotels that had that little bit of extra ambiance we wanted for romance. We had used Lonely Planet guidebooks on other trips but found this guidebook to be much better. It's easy to use, has lovely photographs, and for rainy nights it made good armchair reading. I heartily recommend the Adventure Guide for a wonderful vacation in Costa Rica."--Amazon reviewer. "I took off a point for the pedestrian writing and the sub-standard photos. (The numerous quotes struck me as tangential, but I really liked the design ephemera, including the original luggage tag from Hotel Europa, CR's oldest hotel, a nice touch!) Now, on to the good stuff: First off, Bruce & June Conord's "alternative accomodations" was imaginative and indispensable for me, and of course, in the true spirit of "adventure." Secondly, of all the rough-and-tumble excursions they present, my favorite was their walking tour of historical San José. On foot is really the only way to see Costa Rica's one and only capital city."--Amazon reviewer
Costa Rica's Caribbean coast by Bruce W Conord( )

5 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Braulio Carrillo National Park, Rara Avis Reserve, La Selva & Sarapiquí, Tortuguero National Park, Barra Colorado & Parismina, Puerto Limón, Cahuita, Puerto Viejo - these are a few of the places to see along the Caribbean Coast. This guide tells you everything you need to know. Here are some review of the full guide from which this one is taken: "Despite the title, the book is not all rafting, rappelling and rainforests. A full 117 pages of the 386-page volume are introductory and background material covering history, culture, nature and, of course, all the nuts-and-bolts travel essentials. Useful, descriptive listings of hotels, restaurants, nightlife, shopping and, true to the title, adventure-travel options fill the remaining two-thirds of the guide. But if your adventure tastes lean toward shopping in the artisan town of Sarchí rather than scaling Chirripo you'll find recommendations too. Peppered throughout the text are quotes from literature, music and popular sayings, from everyone from Gilbert and Sullivan to Martin Luther King and The Beach Boys. All fit the text, and you'll be excused from breaking away from the travel information and thumbing through to see who the Conords will quote next. The book recommends locking your passport in your hotel safe and, when you go out, carrying a photocopy that you've made before you leave home. That advice generates much debate in travel circles, a question of balancing authorities' insistence on seeing the original document with the risk of losing it. In any case, a copy made before departure without that all-important entry stamp into the country would never suffice. But these matters are small and forgivable in a guide packed with such solid information."--Tico Times. "I am here in Costa Rica in an internet cafe and had to take the time to tell everyone what a good book this is. It really gave us everything we needed to plan our trip and now that we are here, we use it to find just about everything. If you have not visited Costa Rica yet, get a copy of this book and come on down -- it is fabulous. PURA VIDA!"--Ramon Vallarino.

I heartily recommend the Adventure Guide for a wonderful vacation in Costa Rica."--Amazon customer. "My fiancee and I went to Costa Rica and wanted to get away from everything. This book led us to Uvita de Osa (not even mentioned in other books). This book gave us great local information and helped us plan our vacation from start to finish
