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.
You'll explore and learn at National Museum (Museo Nacional) and Galeria Namu. Get outdoors at La Paz Waterfall Gardens and River Rafting & Tubing. There's still lots to do: admire the masterpieces at Precolumbian Gold Museum and stop by Chieton Moren.

For photos, other places to visit, and more tourist information, refer to the San Jose online travel planner .

If you are flying in from Puerto Rico, the closest major airports are Tobias Bolanos International Airport, Juan Santamaria International Airport and Limon International Airport. In March, daytime highs in San Jose are 32°C, while nighttime lows are 22°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 30th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
