'Lonely Planet Phrasebooks. Portable, pocket-size, cheap, and available for almost any country you might want to visit...'
"...Lonely Planet phrase books have long taken a hip, streetwise approach."--Atlanta Journal-Constitution, May 27, 2004
A special eco-tourism section, extensive two-way dictionary, easy-to-use pronunciation guide, suggestions for health needs, emergencies, and useful phrases for finding accommodations and hitting the town make this book an asset to traveling in Costa Rica.
Lounging around in a resort will make great use of your English. You could, however, grab this phrasebook and trade tiquismos with the Ticos, chase the best beach break, track down a toucan and go home knowing you"ve had an all-round pura vida time.
