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.
Our Lady of the Angels Basilica (Basilica de Nuestra Senora de Los Angeles) and Metropolitan Church (Catedral Metropolitana) will appeal to history buffs. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at National Museum (Museo Nacional) and Museo de Arte Costarricense. Explore San Jose's surroundings by going to Jardin Botanico Lankester (in Cartago), Poas Volcano (in Poas Volcano National Park) and La Paz Waterfall Gardens (in Vara Blanca). There's much more to do: explore the world behind art at Precolumbian Gold Museum, stroll through Parque La Sabana, explore the engaging exhibits at Museo de los Ninos, and view the masterpieces at Galeria Namu.

To find reviews, other places to visit, ratings, and tourist information, use the San Jose sightseeing planner.

In December, daily temperatures in San Jose can reach 30°C, while at night they dip to 22°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 15th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
