About the Author

James Kaiser

Hello! My name is James Kaiser, and I believe travel should be fun, affordable and enlightening. To help travelers enjoy some of the world's most beautiful places, I've written bestselling guidebooks to Costa Rica, Grand Canyon, Yosemite, Joshua Tree and Acadia National Park. My books are filled with gorgeous color photos and packed with fascinating behind-the-scenes info.

About me: After finishing college, I went back to Maine (where I was born and raised) and wrote and self-published "Acadia: The Complete Guide." It was filled with insider tips, detailed maps and color photos, and it quickly became the bestselling guidebook to Acadia National Park.

Following the success of "Acadia: The Complete Guide," I wrote guidebooks to Joshua Tree, Yosemite and Grand Canyon. Shortly after "Grand Canyon: The Complete Guide" was published, it won the Benjamin Franklin Award for Best Full-Color Travel Guide and the Independent Publisher Award for Best Travel Guide.

In 2013 I published my first international guidebook, "Costa Rica: The Complete Guide." With an emphasis on ecotourism and outdoor adventure, it explores the country's incredible natural landscapes, national parks and wildlife - as well as the fascinating human and cultural history of Costa Rica.

o date, I've sold over 150,000 travel guides. Thanks for your support!
