San Jose
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.
Explore San Jose's surroundings by going to Poas Volcano (in Poas Volcano National Park) and La Paz Waterfall Gardens (in Vara Blanca). There's much more to do: let the river carry you with a rafting and tubing tour, take an in-depth tour of Jade Museum, admire the masterpieces at Precolumbian Gold Museum, and shop like a local with Galeria Namu.

To find photos, reviews, and other tourist information, go to the San Jose trip planner .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airports are Tobias Bolanos International Airport, Juan Santamaria International Airport and Limon International Airport. In April, daytime highs in San Jose are 82°F, while nighttime lows are 67°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 18th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
