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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Costa Rica's Craft Brewing Co. and Catarata Del Toro Adventures. Get in touch with nature at La Paz Waterfall Gardens and Poas Volcano. Explore San Jose's surroundings by going to Center for Tropical Agricultural Research and Education (CATIE) (in Turrialba), Monte de la Cruz (in Heredia) and Toucan Rescue Ranch (in San Isidro). There's still lots to do: get interesting insight from Tours, take in the architecture and design of Universidad de Costa Rica, take an in-depth tour of National Museum (Museo Nacional), and meet the residents at Zoo Ave.

To find where to stay, maps, other places to visit, and other tourist information, go to the San Jose trip itinerary builder site .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airports are Tobias Bolanos International Airport, Juan Santamaria International Airport and Limon International Airport. In June in San Jose, expect temperatures between 80°F during the day and 68°F at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 14th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
