  • Admission to San Jose and very clean. It did work a little difficult, but totally understandable. It was best to kill a little time.

  • If you're into contemporary art, this is the best you can get in Costa Rica! I went there twice in 2014 and I really enjoyed both visits. Not a very big exhibition, but really good quality. Enjoy!  more »
