Author Appearance: Joe Baur – ‘Talking Tico’

Thursday, December 28 @ 7:00pm

Costa Rica is one of the most sought-after vacation destinations in the Americas with some of the world’s most attractive natural surroundings teeming with wildlife. Most visitors spend years saving up for a trip of a lifetime, or perhaps even a honeymoon, but Joe decided to move there for ten months to get a closer look at life in and around Costa Rica; Xenophobic expatriates, delicious food, vibrant market scenes, an epic battle with Mothra, and inevitable culture clashes all make an appearance in Talking Tico, leaving readers with a new impression of this fascinating region.

Joe Baur is a travel writer, author, filmmaker, photographer, and podcaster. Hell, he’s even stood in front of groups of people to share his experiences and answer questions, so feel free to add “speaker” to the résumé, too.

Before moving to Costa Rica, Joe contributed a chapter to Rust Belt Chic: The Cleveland Anthology and published Best Hikes Near Cleveland with Falcon Guides. Following those 10 months in Costa Rica, he returned to Cleveland where he launched the Without A Path travel podcast. Over the course of his career, his work has been featured in a variety of international publications, including BBC Travel, Viator, AFAR Magazine, Yahoo! Travel, National Geographic and more.
