Our favorite Costa Rica map: Costa Rica/Panama by Reise Know-How
We chose a map made by the German company Reise Know-How because hands-down it has the best scale, is the most up to date and the most sturdy of the ones we tested. And if you decide to head over to neighboring Panama, you won’t need to buy a new map as this one includes both countries.
Many of the maps we have used on our travels have fallen apart in our hands or dissolved when wet. Not so this Costa Rica map by Reise Know-How — it holds up to the toughest travel conditions.
