Want Costa Rica in the palm of your hand?

If you’ve got an iPhone, a Touch, or an iPad, you’ve probably noticed that there are two and a half zillion apps out there to choose from, many of them barely worth the space they’re taking up on your handheld. But when one of our contributors puts one together, I know it’s going to be worth downloading.

So take a look at Costa Rica Pura Vida! by Christopher Baker. He’s the writer that put together many of our reviews of luxury Costa Rica hotels and he knows the country inside-out. You want credentials? OK, he’s the author of Moon Costa Rica and National Geographic Costa Rica.
