About the Book
Not your typical travel guide, Vicarious Adventures on the Rich Coast explores Costa Rica and its splendor through a heartfelt journey of love, laughter and the search for life’s meaning. It will take you deep into the jungle in search of monkeys, driving down one way streets the wrong way and meeting new friends, experiencing the Pura Vida culture firsthand. Now, back in the States, Chrissy Gruninger finds herself far away from her love, the beautiful beaches and the extraordinary wildlife. This entertaining travel guide and memoir recounts her visits to the country that always welcomes her with its tropical sunshine, colorful landscape and friendly people.
Bonus! The new edition contains two additional chapters and 12 pages of photographs at the end of the book!
For every book purchased, the author will donate $1 to EarthEquilibrium.org.
