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.
Escape the urban bustle at Catarata Del Toro Adventures and Tee Times Costa Rica Golf Tours. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Costa Rica's Craft Brewing Co. and Metal Church. You'll find plenty of places to visit near San Jose: Frogs Heaven (in Puerto Viejo de Sarapiqui), Poas Volcano (in Poas Volcano National Park) and La Paz Waterfall Gardens (in Vara Blanca). Pamper yourself for a day on the 28th (Wed) at some of the top local wellness centers. There's still lots to do: take in the exciting artwork at Galeria Namu, get engrossed in the history at Juan Santamaria Historical Cultural Museum, relax and float downstream with a rafting and tubing tour, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Center for Tropical Agricultural Research and Education (CATIE).

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airports are Tobias Bolanos International Airport, Juan Santamaria International Airport and Limon International Airport. February in San Jose sees daily highs of 30°C and lows of 21°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 28th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
