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.
Kick off your visit on the 15th (Sat): relax and float downstream with a rafting and tubing tour, get engrossed in the history at Museo Nacional De Costa Rica, and then take in the exciting artwork at Galeria Namu. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: explore the world behind art at Museo de Arte Costarricense, then take an in-depth tour of Jade Museum, then examine the collection at Pre-Columbian Gold Museum, and finally stroll around Parque La Sabana.
