Culture Shock! Costa Rica breaks down the cliches about Central America's famously friendly people to reveal what it is that really makes them tick. The author, runner-up in the 1996 British Telecom Journalist of the Year Award, spent several months living among the Ticos to research this book, doing everything from living in indigenous communities to hanging out with the country's top surfers. The most popular travel destination in Central America, Costa Rica's appeal for many visitors is that it seems like home. But life here often turns out to be more complicated than it seems at first glance. Read this book and avoid the pitfalls. Learn to live, work, and play like a Tico. Book jacket.
