San Jose
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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Alajuela (Zoo Ave & Souvenir Museum), Poas Volcano (in Poas Volcano National Park) and La Paz Waterfall Gardens (in Vara Blanca). The adventure continues: get interesting insight from Tours, contemplate the geological forces at Irazu Volcano National Park, get engrossed in the history at National Museum (Museo Nacional), and identify plant and animal life at Toucan Rescue Ranch.

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airports are Tobias Bolanos International Airport, Juan Santamaria International Airport and Limon International Airport. In May in San Jose, expect temperatures between 32°C during the day and 23°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 19th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
