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.
Change things up with these side-trips from San Jose: La Paz Waterfall Gardens (in Vara Blanca), Villa Vanilla / Rainforest Spices (in Manuel Antonio) and Poas Volcano (in Poas Volcano National Park). Pamper yourself for a day on the 26th (Thu) at some of the top local wellness centers. There's lots more to do: relax and float downstream with a rafting and tubing tour, admire the masterpieces at Precolumbian Gold Museum, get engrossed in the history at Jade Museum, and identify plant and animal life at Toucan Rescue Ranch.

For maps, photos, where to stay, and tourist information, go to the San Jose itinerary builder app .

If you are flying in from France, the closest major airports are Tobias Bolanos International Airport, Juan Santamaria International Airport and Limon International Airport. In July in San Jose, expect temperatures between 30°C during the day and 23°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 29th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
