Created in cooperation with Instituto Geografico Nacional, National Geographic's Costa Rica Adventure Map is designed to meet the needs of all adventure travelers in this tropical tourist hotspot. Indexes of towns and protected areas, such as National Wildlife Refuges and Parks, wetlands, nature reserves and other natural attractions as well as pinpointed recreational, ecological, cultural, and historic destinations are combined with the clearly mapped road network of primary and secondary roads, to help you explore on and off the beaten path. Such specialized content, not available on traditional road maps, makes the map the perfect companion to National Geographic's Costa Rica Traveler Guide or any other guidebook.
