One of the coolest and most practical tech offerings is google maps and the ability to download maps for offline use.
Wi-fi is readily available, but count on not having wi-if when you most want it.
Picture walking down to the beach or to a cafe in the evening with few street lights to guide you back to Bodhi.
How comforting it is to follow the little blue dot (from GPS which is available whether or not you have wi-fi) to your destination. It is a godsend! Well that might be a bit of an exaggeration, but it sure is nice.
The blue dot shows your current position and the “flashlight beam” shows where you are pointing.
To download: Go to Google Maps and select an area (e.g. Nosara Guanacaste Province). Expand or shrink the map as you like (this affects the size of the downloaded file - anywhere from 5MB to 100MB or more).
After it downloads, you can rename it. Now when you’re not connected, you can still use the GPS to locate your position and find your way around.
