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.
Get some historical perspective at Our Lady of the Angels Basilica (Basilica de Nuestra Senora de Los Angeles) and Ruinas de Ujarras. Get some cultural insight at National Museum (Museo Nacional) and Precolumbian Gold Museum. Get out of town with these interesting San Jose side-trips: El Toledo Coffee Tour (in Atenas), La Paz Waterfall Gardens (in Vara Blanca) and Poas Volcano (in Poas Volcano National Park). There's still lots to do: let the river carry you with a rafting and tubing tour, take an in-depth tour of Jade Museum, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Metropolitan Church (Catedral Metropolitana), and admire nature's wide array of creatures at Zoo Ave.

If you are flying in from Guatemala, the closest major airports are Tobias Bolanos International Airport, Juan Santamaria International Airport and Limon International Airport. In April, plan for daily highs up to 33°C, and evening lows to 22°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 14th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
