  • The teatro Nacional de Costa Rica consists of two floors, the entrance has a cost of US $. 5.00 and my personal opinion is that you there's nothing that my personally has drawn much attention, is traversed in a short time, also has a coffee shop that actually has a reputation but is expensive and coffee costs around US $. 6.00

  • If you come to visit San José, take a guided tour through the Teatro Nacional. Built at the end of the 19th century by initiative of the coffee-barons of that time, it´s a must-see. The tour takes abo...  more »

  • Beautiful building that makes you just step back in time. Performance of Dracula was eerie and intriguing. Would definitely return on future trips to Costa Rica. A word of caution, if you purchase tickets online, you may not get a confirmation as you are used to. Our pending charges on our credit card "disappeared" entirely then came back after a day as finalized. In that interim, we worried they had been cancelled and purchased another set of tickets. We ended up with two sets. Picked tickets up at will call.
  • Not a building that would catch your eyes on the street, but the interior didn't fail to impress me. The National Theater is not just beautiful, but also haves a great history. It's basically the pride of the city, it's the place where visiting presidents dine, as the theater room can be transformed into a ballroom. Guided tour haves a lot of interesting information, but I really disliked the attitude of the guide.
  • Just visited after many years, beautiful architecture but definitely needs a facelift on the front, since is a Historic building I know it's going to be a difficult process.
  • Great place for history. English speaking guide was bit cocky.. Everytime you ask him question which is kind of reassuring the fact will come out "yes, exactly as I just explained" seems like he is discouraging us to ask any question .. The picture in the center hall roof is so amazing that it seem following you and rotates itself.. Makes me to give 3 star .. Everything else is average.
  • We have seen frankenstein. It was Top performance for me. Complex, top class choreography!
