There is, in short, an awful lot to see. Combined with one of the most stable economies in Central America, Costa Rica's tourist industry is expanding like never before. Only a guide written by journalists and writers living in the country, passionate and renowned in their fields, can truly reflect all this unique country has to offer. With an emphasis on the latest and quirkiest shops, hotels, bars and art galleries, "Time Out Costa Rica" promises to be the most in-depth and culturally aware insider guide.
