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.
Get out of town with these interesting San Jose side-trips: Jardins da Cachoeira de La Paz (in Vara Blanca), Poas Volcano National Park (Poas Volcano & Parque Recreativo Los Manantiales) and Alajuela (Hacienda Alsacia Starbucks Coffee Farm, Zoo Ave, & more). Spend the 21st (Mon) exploring ancient history at Guayabo National Park and Monument. Pack the 24th (Sun) with family-friendly diversions at Blue Day Family Club. Next up on the itinerary: relax and float downstream with a rafting and tubing tour, don't miss a visit to Central Bank (Banco Central), take an in-depth tour of Jade Museum, and stroll around Parque La Sabana.
