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 Tirimbina Biological Reserve and Catarata Del Toro Adventures. You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Center for Tropical Agricultural Research and Education (CATIE) and Bosque de la Hoja. Venture out of the city with trips to Fabrica de Carretas Eloy Alfaro (in Sarchi), Iglesia de San Jose de Orosi and the Museum (in Orosi) and Cartago (Ruins of the Church of Carthage & Savegre Reserve). Pack the 30th (Tue) with family-friendly diversions at Turu Ba Ri Tropical Park. Pack the 27th (Sat) with family-friendly diversions at Rainforest Adventures. The adventure continues: identify plant and animal life at Toucan Rescue Ranch, get in on the family fun at Parque Diversiones, admire the sheer force of La Paz Waterfall Gardens, and get outside with Rapidos rio Pacuare Costa Rica.
