Pretty much anything I read comes from the Peace Corps library in the volunteer lounge at the office, and so did this book. I grabbed it because I thought I could give it to the expat who lives in my town.

Synopsis:
Author Erin Van Rheenen left her life as a guidebook editor in the San Francisco Bay Area to make a home abroad in Costa Rica.

I'm not actually planning on living full time in Costa Rica, but this is also a great book for those who want to learn more about the country. I've traveled to CR often but still learned more about day to day living and the laws and culture of the country from this book.

Lot's of useful information except for the part about bringing traveler's checks. Banks don't want to cash them since they've become a popular way to launder money.
