  • Visit this place full off activity, s it will give you a real impression, be on time as you have market on tuesday early 
  • In this place very varied artistic acts arise so it would be worth that culture authorities had more active intervention by facilitating and regulating these activities

  • The Plaza de la Cultura, is being "renovated" currently, therefore these days is not possible to enter. As soon as you claiming it, I am sure that you will have more "attractive", because it is a place that invites to stay hours; There are always many people from various countries, tourists and national advantage to take pictures and enjoy the company of hundreds of "pigeons" who live there himself. On the South side, is the National Theater, an architectural beauty. To the North is central Avenue, converted into a Boulevard", with shops and restaurants. Nearby is the restaurant of the Hotel Balmoral. Don't miss this opportunity...

  • I think the center of San Jose cture can be watched from here. If you like people wat hing, if you want to eat, a coffee, or something sweet, or even a museum, or the theatre, everything is around (or below) it. Many people goes around and through it on daily basis. Piece of advice, no matter where you are in the world, always take care of your belongings, not because it is this place, but because visitors tend to be less 'alert' in foreign places ;)
  • La pase bien
  • Vibrant, colourful, fascinating...just a few words to describe this wonderful pedestrian mall in the heart of San Jose.
  • It's a park in downtown San José, no green areas, people go there to chill.
  • Great
