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.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Metal Church and Iglesia de San Jose de Orosi and the Museum. Escape the urban bustle at Center for Tropical Agricultural Research and Education (CATIE) and Toucan Rescue Ranch. Explore San Jose's surroundings by going to Catarata Del Toro Adventures (in Bajos del Toro), Alajuela (Cathedral & Souvenir Museum) and Cartago (Ruins of the Church of Carthage, Santiago Apostol Parish Ruins, & more). There's lots more to do: sample the tasty concoctions at Costa Rica's Craft Brewing Co., play a few rounds at Tee Times Costa Rica Golf Tours, identify plant and animal life at Bosque de la Hoja, and stop by Chieton Moren.

To find more things to do, photos, maps, and other tourist information, go to the San Jose itinerary planning website .

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 in San Jose, expect temperatures between 32°C during the day and 22°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 28th (Wed) to allow time to travel back home.
