    The differences are minor. In my opinion, both coasts of Costa Rica are fucking phenomenal. The writing is vivid and inspiring and a must-read for anyone interested in biodiversity. The nature preserve there is also beautiful - a little overly visited but there are sloths, coatis, and lots of other very cool plants and animals to see.

    Once you establish what your priorities are you can go from there. An excellent guide to one of the most diverse bird populations anywhere with 52 beautiful color plates, detailed species accounts, descriptions of birding localities. It is one of the best examples of an interesting, beautiful yet scientifically accurate and compelling books available. The imagery is something that Crichton does well when sharing his fondness for the country. For example, a popular travel tour company offers a day trip from San Jose to La Fortuna for volcano viewing and relaxing at a fancy hot spring.

    Due to the wildness of central Costa Rica, there is ample opportunity to get off the beaten path and really explore, so make sure you pack a great tent! Nonetheless, her memoir is a fun, quick read that explores monkeys in a mature and intelligent way. A general key is used to to get to the right chapter then pages of specific keys including good black and white line drawings are used for specific identifications. The book is in its 2nd edition. Lonely Planet Costa Rica has had its ups and downs over the years with some of the editions starting around the 7th suffering from some stale information and some strong opinions about the over-commercialization of Costa Rican tourism that came across as preachy to many readers.
