Most of the books in Jaime Peligro Bookstore in Tamarindo are in English, as most people in Tamarindo are from the USA and Canada or speak English because most visitors are from the USA and Canada. There is a growing number of European tourists in Tamarindo.
This bookstore sells new and used books, so some of the foreign visitors have recycled their books here, including visitors from Europe. This photo shows the German book selection, with Germany identified in signs in German and Spanish.
Here is a link to an earlier post I did about the bookstore in November 2008 for a City Daily Photo theme day of "Bookstores."

This week we have photos of waterfowl along the shores of Lake Nicaragua posted on on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.
Good! Something for everyone, and I'm pleased to see that recycled books are part of the inventory.
I used to know quite a bit of German. I wonder if I could make my way through one of those books.
Most of them seem to be translations of American novels. One book, Kinderkrankheiten, about children diseases...
I can understand this. European travel habits are becoming a lot more global. It isn't a big surprise that Costa Rica is being discovered.
