REVIEW: Video Librarian
This seventh title in the popular Costa Rica travel series showcases the variety of ecotourism accommodations and activities available in the beautiful Central American country boasting 500,000 animal and plant species... While each of these hotels may be a bit different, they all share the same philosophy of protecting the environment, respecting the natural beauty of the region, and allowing tourists to become immersed in nature. Impressive waterfalls, butterfly gardens, zip lines, remote hiking trails, and waterways for kayaking are some of the sites in this program that showcases the natural splendors of Costa Rica.
This is suggested for public library collections serving environmentally conscious travelers and works well for library programming highlighting Central America travel.
