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 San Jose's surroundings by going to Jardins da Cachoeira de La Paz (in Vara Blanca), Poas Volcano (in Poas Volcano National Park) and Jaco (Zipline, Adrenaline & Extreme Tours, & more). Next up on the itinerary: get a new perspective on things with Boat Tours & Water Sports, make a trip to Mercado Nacional de Artesanias, get engrossed in the history at Jade Museum, and see the interesting displays at Pre-Columbian Gold Museum.

For maps, more things to do, other places to visit, and more tourist information, refer to the San Jose sightseeing planner.

If you are flying in from Trinidad and Tobago, the closest major airports are Tobias Bolanos International Airport, Juan Santamaria International Airport and Limon International Airport. In December, daytime highs in San Jose are 30°C, while nighttime lows are 22°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 5th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
