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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Catarata Del Toro Adventures and Frogs Heaven. Change things up with these side-trips from San Jose: La Paz Waterfall Gardens (in Vara Blanca), Poas Volcano (in Poas Volcano National Park) and Fabrica de Carretas Eloy Alfaro (in Sarchi). There's still lots to do: let the river carry you with a rafting and tubing tour, look for gifts at Chocolatería Sibú, view the masterpieces at Galeria Namu, and head outdoors with Rapidos rio Pacuare Costa Rica.

In January, daily temperatures in San Jose can reach 30°C, while at night they dip to 22°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 11th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
