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.
For shopping fun, head to Galeria Namu or Multiplaza. Escape the urban bustle at La Paz Waterfall Gardens and River Rafting & Tubing. There's still lots to do: get engrossed in the history at National Museum (Museo Nacional), make a trip to Mercado Nacional de Artesanias, and admire the masterpieces at Precolumbian Gold Museum.
