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 San Jose's surroundings by going to La Paz Waterfall Gardens (in Vara Blanca), Catarata Del Toro Adventures (in Bajos del Toro) and Our Lady of the Angels Basilica (Basilica de Nuestra Senora de Los Angeles) (in Cartago). There's much more to do: take a stroll through Multiplaza, let the river carry you with a rafting and tubing tour, look for gifts at Holalola Souvenir Shop, and get impressive views of Poas Volcano.
