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.
Change things up with these side-trips from San Jose: Zoo Ave (in Alajuela), Poas Volcano (in Poas Volcano National Park) and La Paz Waterfall Gardens (in Vara Blanca). Next up on the itinerary: let the river carry you with a rafting and tubing tour, explore the world behind art at Precolumbian Gold Museum, and get engrossed in the history at Jade Museum.

To find ratings, maps, where to stay, and tourist information, refer to the San Jose vacation planner.

If you are flying in from Bolivia, the closest major airports are Tobias Bolanos International Airport, Juan Santamaria International Airport and Limon International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 32°C in April, and nighttime lows around 22°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 16th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
