San Jose

3.9
A trip to San Jose, the capital, commercial center, and cultural hub of Costa Rica, gives you a chance to experience the lively atmosphere and rich cultural past of this vibrant country. At first glance, given its lack of colonial-era architecture, the city appears a gritty, bustling metropolis, but scratch the surface and you'll find plenty to do and see. Numerous museums and notable buildings, a bustling nightlife and dining scene, as well as a great central location make San Jose worth a visit when vacationing in Costa Rica. San Jose is in San Jose Metro. Put San Jose at the heart of your travel plans by using our Costa Rica trip planner.
