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.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Multiplaza and Jade Museum. Get outdoors at Poas Volcano and River Rafting & Tubing. Venture out of the city with trips to Our Lady of the Angels Basilica (Basilica de Nuestra Senora de Los Angeles) (in Cartago) and La Paz Waterfall Gardens (in Vara Blanca). Next up on the itinerary: get engrossed in the history at National Museum (Museo Nacional), get a taste of the local shopping with Galeria Namu, and admire the masterpieces at Precolumbian Gold Museum.
