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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around San Jose: Jaco (Jaco Beach, Zipline, & more), Tarcoles Bridge (in Tarcoles) and Jardins da Cachoeira de La Paz (in Vara Blanca). Spend the 31st (Tue) exploring ancient history at Guayabo National Park and Monument. There's much more to do: get impressive views of Poas Volcano, explore the striking landscape of Irazu Volcano National Park, look for all kinds of wild species at Dave & Dave's Costa Rica Nature Park, and get engrossed in the history at Jade Museum.
