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 hidden gems such as Toucan Rescue Ranch and Tirimbina Biological Reserve. Get in touch with nature at Valle Dorado and Savegre Reserve. Get out of town with these interesting San Jose side-trips: Cartago (Ruinas Sanatorio Carlos Duran, Ruins of the Church of Carthage, & more), Alajuela (Arenal Volcano riding tour, Souvenir Museum, & more) and El Copal Reserve (in Pejibaye).

Next up on the itinerary: look for all kinds of wild species at Center for Tropical Agricultural Research and Education (CATIE), take in the dramatic scenery at La Paz Waterfall Gardens, hike along Parque Nacional Braulio Carrillo, and take in the architecture and design of Universidad de Costa Rica.
