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.
Explore San Jose's surroundings by going to Jardins da Cachoeira de La Paz (in Vara Blanca) and Poas Volcano (in Poas Volcano National Park). The adventure continues: let the river carry you with a rafting and tubing tour, see the interesting displays at Pre-Columbian Gold Museum, get engrossed in the history at Jade Museum, and make a trip to Mercado Nacional de Artesanias.

To see maps, traveler tips, ratings, and tourist information, refer to the San Jose day trip website .

If you are flying in from Brazil, the closest major airports are Tobias Bolanos International Airport, Juan Santamaria International Airport and Limon International Airport. In November, daily temperatures in San Jose can reach 30°C, while at night they dip to 22°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 5th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
