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 cultural insight at Galeria Namu and Ruinas de Ujarras. Take a break from the city and head to Toucan Rescue Ranch and Frogs Heaven. Explore San Jose's surroundings by going to Catarata Del Toro Adventures (in Bajos del Toro), Metal Church (in Grecia) and Iglesia de San Jose de Orosi and the Museum (in Orosi). The adventure continues: indulge your thirst for a good beer at Costa Rica's Craft Brewing Co., identify plant and animal life at Spirogyra Butterfly Garden, cruise along Top Travel Costa Rica, and catch all the local highlights with Tee Times Costa Rica Golf Tours.

To see other places to visit, more things to do, reviews, and tourist information, refer to the San Jose road trip app .

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airports are Tobias Bolanos International Airport, Juan Santamaria International Airport and Limon International Airport. April in San Jose sees daily highs of 32°C and lows of 22°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 21st (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
