  • It is very cute, Pueblo Antiguo is a replica of the city of San Jose in late 19TH century and early 20TH century. This theme park is connected to the amusement park. It has a restaurant serving delicious meals "El Ventolero". The different eficios (rooms) is alguilan for parties and celebrations. Very nice place, worth seeing. Ah! one thing. Parking is VERY EXPENSIVE. If you get to go Park your car in the amusement park... it is the same and not kill you with the price of parking.

  • Interesting route, to learn something of the ancient San Jose, with well made buildings and a tour that is very entertaining. Unfortunately, missing activities and some of the services are a bit expensive for what is offered.
