Costa Rica is an increasingly popular destination for natural history tours and "green" travel. This Rough Guide, by Jean McNeil, includes sensitive coverage of the country's rainforests and environment, as well as informed discussion of topics such as pre-Columbian history and the status of the indigenous peoples. There's all the detailed guidance you'd expect on everything from whitewater rafting to exploring the national parks, climbing the volcanos and even riding with the cowboys of Guanacaste. The book also includes the most comprehensive information ever published about San Josť - with insider's recommendations ranging from accommodation to salsa clubs
