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 the numerous day-trip ideas around San Jose: Zoo Ave (in Alajuela), Poas Volcano (in Poas Volcano National Park) and El Toledo Coffee Tour (in Atenas). There's much more to do: admire the sheer force of La Paz Waterfall Gardens, admire the natural beauty at Jardin Botanico Lankester, tour the pleasant surroundings at Parque La Sabana, and take an in-depth tour of Jade Museum.
