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: Poas Volcano National Park (Poas Volcano & Parque Recreativo Los Manantiales), Jardins da Cachoeira de La Paz (in Vara Blanca) and Cartago (Santuario Nacional Nuestra Senora de Los Angeles, Jardin Botanico Lankester, & more). Spend the 11th (Thu) exploring ancient history at Guayabo National Park and Monument. Pamper yourself for a day on the 18th (Thu) at some of the top local wellness centers. And it doesn't end there: relax and float downstream with a rafting and tubing tour, scramble along the landscape with a canyoning and rapelling tour, get engrossed in the history at Jade Museum, and admire nature's wide array of creatures at Zoo Ave.

In July, daily temperatures in San Jose can reach 31°C, while at night they dip to 22°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 9th (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
