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.
You'll explore and learn at Galeria Namu and Juan Santamaria Historical Cultural Museum. Get outdoors at Catarata Del Toro Adventures and Tee Times Costa Rica Golf Tours. Venture out of the city with trips to Metal Church (in Grecia), Toucan Rescue Ranch (in San Isidro) and Santiago Apostol Parish Ruins (in Cartago). The adventure continues: indulge your thirst for a good beer at Costa Rica's Craft Brewing Co., take in the spiritual surroundings of Cathedral, meet the residents at Refugio Herpetologico de Costa Rica, and pause for some serene contemplation at Iglesia de San Jose de Orosi and the Museum.

For photos, ratings, where to stay, and more tourist information, refer to the San Jose road trip site .

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 January, plan for daily highs up to 78°F, and evening lows to 66°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 25th (Thu) to allow enough time to travel back home.
