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. Take a break from the city and head to Poas Volcano and Top Travel Costa Rica. Get out of town with these interesting San Jose side-trips: La Paz Waterfall Gardens (in Vara Blanca), Heredia (Monte de la Cruz & Bosque de la Hoja) and Toucan Rescue Ranch (in San Isidro). There's still lots to do: take a memorable tour with Tours, take an in-depth tour of Juan Santamaria Historical Cultural Museum, explore the striking landscape of Irazu Volcano National Park, and stroll through Parque La Sabana.

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 April, daily temperatures in San Jose can reach 32°C, while at night they dip to 22°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 21st (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
