San Jose
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.
Change things up with these side-trips from San Jose: San Gerardo de Dota (Lauraceas Restaurante&Cafeteria, Rio savegre Waterfall, & more), Cartago (Jardin Botanico Lankester, Santuario Nacional Nuestra Senora de Los Angeles, & more) and Costa Rica Kayak School (in Turrialba). Treat yourself to a day of pampering on the 24th (Tue) at some of the best spas. There's lots more to do: admire the sheer force of Jardins da Cachoeira de La Paz, stroll around Parque La Sabana, see the interesting displays at Pre-Columbian Gold Museum, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Metropolitan Church (Catedral Metropolitana).

To see other places to visit, photos, traveler tips, and other tourist information, refer to the San Jose trip itinerary builder website .

If you are flying in from Argentina, the closest major airports are Tobias Bolanos International Airport, Juan Santamaria International Airport and Limon International Airport. In September, plan for daily highs up to 32°C, and evening lows to 21°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 3rd (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
