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 hidden gems such as Costa Rica's Craft Brewing Co. and Arenal Volcano riding tour. Escape the urban bustle at Poas Volcano and Toucan Rescue Ranch. You'll find plenty of places to visit near San Jose: Jardins da Cachoeira de La Paz (in Vara Blanca), La Paz Waterfall and Peace Lodge Gardens (in Katira) and Museo de Cultura Popular (in Heredia). The adventure continues: delve into the lush surroundings at Rio savegre Waterfall, take in the exciting artwork at Galeria Namu, sample the tasty concoctions at Costa Rica's Craft Brewing Co., and explore the wealth of natural beauty at Irazu Volcano National Park.
