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.
Visiting Dave & Dave's Costa Rica Nature Park and Horseback Riding Tours will get you outdoors. Discover out-of-the-way places like Crocodile Man Tour The Original and Carpe Chepe. You'll find plenty of places to visit near San Jose: Jimmy T's Provisions (in Herradura), Alajuela (Rescate Wildlife Rescue Center & Hacienda Alsacia Starbucks Coffee Farm) and Santuario Nacional Nuestra Senora de Los Angeles (in Cartago). Next up on the itinerary: trek along Parque Nacional Braulio Carrillo, admire the sheer force of Jardins da Cachoeira de La Paz, tour the pleasant surroundings at La Paz Waterfall and Peace Lodge Gardens, and take in the architecture and design of Universidad de Costa Rica.
