Lonely Planet has sold out I used to always like Lonely Planet because they gave suggestions on how to experience a place inexpensively and tips that only locals would know. Maybe it is just specific to this tour book, but what an absolute waste of money. They are clearly getting kick backs from tour groups and resorts and listing them only for that reason. I found a couple of travel blogs that gave me the type of information that Lonely Planet used to give like where the locals go to experience natural hot springs…

Well organized & accurate. We have visited Costa Rica twice (from the U.S.). We’ve used Lonely Planet’s Costa Rica guide book and find it to be very helpful. Costa Rica is a small country, but first-time visitors will be surprised at how much there is to see and do. No guide book will cover everything, but this one provides a solid start. It is well organized by regions, with subsections on activities, sleeping, eating, drinking& nightlife, & getting there. Anyone planning a first-time visit to a foreign country…

Buy a Lonely Planet guide everytime I go on a new vacation spot Helped immensely on our week trip in Costa Rica. Just please be aware there are certain warnings and suggestions that shouldn’t be taken so seriously and are only maybe meant for people that haven’t traveled far from their home before or have never left their home country.
