San Jose
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.
Get outdoors at Poas Volcano and Villa Vanilla / Rainforest Spices. Explore San Jose's surroundings by going to Cartago (Our Lady of the Angels Basilica (Basilica de Nuestra Senora de Los Angeles), Jardin Botanico Lankester, & more), Zoo Ave (in Alajuela) and San Isidro (Toucan Rescue Ranch & Chocolatería Sibú). The adventure continues: admire the sheer force of La Paz Waterfall Gardens, get engrossed in the history at Jade Museum, get a taste of the local shopping with Multiplaza, and get in on the family fun at Rainforest Adventures.

In February, plan for daily highs up to 30°C, and evening lows to 21°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 14th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
